    Been trying to find a fix thru the forums for this similar error but havent been lucky yet finding a working fix...

    Am running Windows Vista and trying to install MS Office Standard 2007.

    At first it installed fine but a few weeks later it started acting up and trying to re-install when trying to run word. So I un-installed Office and try to re-install.. but to my dismay after entering the product key, I started getting an error message when the setup started. "Microsoft Office has encounter an error during setup."

    I inspected the disk surface and it still in pristine condition. I also did a chkdsk, defrag, and retried to rerun the install to no success. Tried to copy the install files to the HDD and run it from there but no luck either.

    Would highly appreciate any feedback or work around to this problem. Thanks in advanced!

    Uninstall. Then run the setup in administrative mode. After installing, start at least one of the programs, such as Word.

    Reboot, then run Windows Update. (It may require a reboot.)

    You should be good to go.

    Silly question.. administrative mode? How do I get into it? Already logged in as the administrator.

    Also, just try to uninstall the MS Office Standard 2007 and got the following setup Error...

    "This product installation has been corrupted. Run setup again from the CD, DVD, or other original installation source."
