This is the error code I get: Error 1919.

This is a known issue with Office 2003. It is caused by a required but missing registry key.

To resolve this problem, replace the missing registry keys. To do this, use one of the following methods.

Instead, I simply selected "Ignore", and the installation completed successfully. Word operates normally.
