Installation Of The MODD Tool Fails On Non-US English Systems
Symptoms:You are not able to complete the installation of the Microsoft Office Document Designer (MODD). When attempting to install MODD, you experience the following behavior:The setup program does not detect your version of Microsoft Word and displays the following text in the System Requirements dialog box:"Microsoft Word version NOT DETECTED or UNKNOWN
(Similar text for Microsoft Excel and Microsoft PowerPoint might also be listed.)"
When you click the Next button, the following message box appears:"This application requires Microsoft Word 2002 or Microsoft Word 2003.
Installation will be aborted."Cause:MODD was designed and tested on a US English version of Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office. If your regional and language options have a number format that uses a comma or another symbol other than a period as the decimal symbol, MODD will not correctly detect the versions of your Microsoft Office applications.Workaround:Temporarily changing your global settings to US English may allow you to complete the MODD installation. Alternately, you may make these changes manually. If your Regional And Language Options use a number format other than a period as the decimal symbol, perform the following steps to temporarily change the number format. You can change it back at any time after installation:1. Prior to installation of MODD, select Start, Control Panel from the Windows desktop and select Regional and Language Options. If viewing Control Panel in Category View, select Date, Time, Language and Regional Options first to see Regional and Language Options.2. On the Regional Options tab of the dialog box that appears, click the Customize button.3. On the Numbers tab of the Customize Regional Options dialog box, set a period (.) as the Decimal Symbol and a comma (,) as the Digit Grouping Symbol.4. On the Currency tab, set a period (.) as the Decimal Symbol.5. Click OK twice to accept your changes and close all open dialog boxes.6. You can now follow the MODD installation instructions as they appear on the MODD CD or in Chapter 00 of the MODD Design Guide.You can reset your preferred regional and language options at any time after MODD installation completes. Once installed, there is nothing in MODD that conflicts with different number formats.
