I tried to open pdf file but impossible and the message error as follows:
Installation error: File not found.
A required installation file ......CAB could not be found.
Original installation source required:
If you installed Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 from a CD, please insert your CD. If you installed Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 over your computer network, please browse to the installation source on your network. Once you have located your installation source, click OK."

Please help fixing this error.

Thanks very much!

Problem opening PDF with Trados Studio 2009: missing CAB file Mar 3, 2013

Trados 2009 uses MS Word to support PDF files and it looks like a cabinet file (CAB) failed to install properly when you installed Microsoft Office 2003. I suggest that you follow the instructions provided in the error message, that is, insert Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 CD in your CD drive, locate the installation source (which should be D:/ or whatever letter has been assigned to your CD drive) and click OK.
I hope this solves the problem.
