While installing Excel 5.0 on my new computer, I receive the message " unable to find share.exe". How do I get "share.exe" so I can complete the installation?

When I installed Excel 5.0 on my old computer, I got help from Microsoft via the telephone. They no longer give telephone help for 5.0. I was able to get 5.0 installed with their help but have forgotten how it was done. HELP!
