Symptoms

When you run Setup for Microsoft Office, the Microsoft Office 2000 Installation Location dialog box might show required space for your CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive. For example, the entry for your CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive might show the following values:
   Volume        Disk Size   Available    Required   Difference
   ------------------------------------------------------------

   F:             505MB         0KB        2994KB     -2994KB
				
This dialog box may appear just after the Calculate Disk Space Requirements dialog box is displayed.

When you click Next in this dialog box and then click Install Now in the Microsoft Office 2000: Ready to Install dialog box, you receive the Insufficient Disk Space dialog box with text and values similar to the following:
The highlighted volumes do not have enough disk space available for the currently selected features.
      Volume        Disk Size   Available    Required   Difference
      ------------------------------------------------------------

      F:             505MB         0KB        2994KB     -2994KB
				
NOTE: If you create a verbose log file for the Setup process, you may find lines similar to the following.
Property(C): TempFolder = F:\

Property(C): CURRENTDIRECTORY = F:\
In these two log file entries, F:\ is pointing to the root of the CD-ROM drive.

    If the TEMP variable is present but the path is invalid, click Edit and type a valid path for the Variable Value. Then, click OK.
  5. If the TEMP variable is disabled, click to select the check box for the TEMP variable.
  6. Repeat steps 1-5 for the TMP variable.
