He could try using "Detect and Repair" from the help menu in Outlook. 
Also, check to see if he has any mixed version of MS Office installed (i.e.,
Office 2000 and Office XP mixed up.) If he does,
have him remove all versions that don't match and keep one single version of
Office installed. Those "asking for CD" problems will disappear.
Plus, make sure he's installed the latest SP for XP.
Having home edition or pro makes no difference with the problem you're

Subject: [exchangelist] XP Home edition

I have a user who just went out and bought a new system with XP Home
Edition?I know?yuk.  He?s using Outlook 2000 and when he tries to connect to
our Exchange 2000 box, he says it keeps asking him for the Office 2000 disk
when he opens Outlook or OWA.

He?s remotely connecting to our Exchange box either through a high speed
connection or dial up.

This is the only user I?m having issues with connecting to our Exchange box.
