1706 error on non-admin account on win xp

Post by jcg » Wed, 19 May 2004 05:01:35


we have a communal pc where I am working now. Some users have admin
privileges, but most do not. Recently, we started getting the 1706 error
when one of the non-privileged users tries to access an Office program
(excel or word).

We tried re-installing, but the problem still exists.

Oddly, you can escape out of the multiple error messages, and the programs
appear to function normally.

What can I do next?

Hi Joel,

1706 error is: No valid source could be found for product X. There are a
few possible reasons for this.

1. Only Administrators have access to the Office Admin Point on the network
- Add appropriate permissions to source files.
2. There are some missing registry keys that need to be repared. Follow the
articles in Issue 2 to make sure the appropriate keys are there.
