You are replying to an almost 2-month old post. Hardly an overachiever.
More like slowachiever.
It's probably on Gloria's install CD because she has the Standard edition of
Office 2003. She install Office 2003 Standard so the STD11.MSI would be on
the install disc that she used. The "STD" means it was the Standard
edition. The "11" is the version number (10 = Office XP, 11 = Office 2003,
12 = Office 2007). I have the Professional edition of Office 2003 so my
install CD has a PRO11.MSI file on it: PRO for the Profession edition and 11
for the 2003 version. Since the install-on-first-access prompt is looking
for STD11.MSI, that file would be found on an install CD for Office 2003
Standard edition. You installed Office 2007 so I'm guessing the file is
called STD12.MSI or PRO12.MSI on your install disc (you didn't bother to
mention WHICH edition of Office 2007 that you have).
If what you got stuck with on your pre-built host was a suite of trial
software then you should uninstall the trialware BEFORE you install the
non-trial version of the same software. As I recall, Microsoft's
recommendation is to uninstall their trial versions before installing their
You somehow "lost" your restoration CD. That could mean it is the restore
CD for your host as produced by the OEM that pre-built it and which includes
both Windows along with several apps, like Office (but which might be trial
versions so they can bloat their software package). The restore CD for your
host either comes with your host or you are required to make it yourself by
following the instructions in the manual. If you lost your restore CD, or
your host crashed and you never bothered to follow the instructions to
create a restore CD from an image in a hidden hard disk partition, you'll
have to contact whomever is the OEM/maker for your host and order a
replacement from them. Since you never mentioned that your host crashed
then just do what the manual says on creating a restore disc. However, some
restore programs only let you restore an image on the hard disk so you wipe
everything out to lay down that same factory image. Some let you select a
custom install so you can pick what to include. Most are restore programs,
not partial installers that would let you pick just the included apps to
