first post here. found this board from the post here that did not help me with my problem at all currently, i have Microsoft Office 2003 SP2 installed and i need to have the equation editor installed in microsoft word. i didn't install it during initial installation so now i'm trying to do it through the Add Components menu. even so, i can't add components, install, or repair anything because it keeps saying "Please insert the disk: Microsoft Office 2003" and i clearly have it because i'm running from it but it doesn't work! anyone know what's going on?!? if not...anyone know how i can install equation editor?
