Office 2003 asking for location of SKUxxx.CAB

I was working on a machine at work today and after adding it to our domain and logging in for the firt time as myself, I kept getting errors where Office 2003 was asking for the location of a file called SKUxxx.CAB.  I couldn’t track down the original CDs (this computer has the Small Business version installed on it – I have a million 2003 Professional, but they didn’t work).  I thought I was out of luck and would have to buy another copu of Office to get this machine working when I ran across this tip at annoyances.org:

When Microsoft Office 2003 is asking for the location of SKUxxx.CAB, but won’t find
it when you provide the location of the install CD:

Go into the registry:

HKEY_Local_Machine
Software
Microsoft
Office
11.0
Delivery

Change CDCache to 0  (not 2 or 1)

It worked like a charm, and I’m back to work again!
