Problems after Upgrade Installation from Office 2003 to Office 2010

Question: Problems after Upgrade Installation from Office 2003 to Office 2010

I did an upgrade installation from Office 2003 PRO to Office 2010 PRO. I had several issues with Access denied on C:\Config.msi. I usually select retry and all is well. I think I may have missed one of the retries before I did the system restart.
Now I get an error 2203 whenever I reboot, and the Office 2003 installer keeps popping up anytime I try to do anything.
I tried uninstalling Office 2003 and was told that I had a corrupted install. I tried re-installing it and it seems to just hang.
I also tried to uninstall and repair Office 2010.

I'm at a loss at this point.

Answer:office 2003 upgrade to office 2010

There's no upgrade license for Office 2010. It should install just fine over whatever version you have, and it will install just fine on a computer without any previous version installed.

We are wanting to up-grade our current Office suite Office 2003 to either Office 2010 or Office 2013.  Our PC's are running Windows 7
 
I would just like to know what peoples opinions and advice is on this?

Answer:Up-grade from Office 2003 to Office 2010 or Office 2013

 I can't speak to Office 2013, but I've done numerous upgrades to Office through 2010.  When you install the new version, you have the option to keep the old version or just replace it.  Starting with Office 2007 the familiar menu bar has been replaced with the ribbons which take a lot of getting used to for folks used to older versions.  There's a little program called UbitMenu that will add most of the menu bar functions back in the 2007 and 2010 versions that a lot of folks find helpful.  If you do opt to have two different versions installed at the same time, what happens is that when you switch from one to the other, it goes through a juggling act that takes a minute or so.  It's a bit of a pain, but if you need it, it could be a convenience.
 
Good luck.

I'm running Windows 7 on my new computer, which came with a trial version of Office 2010. Rather than buy the full version when the trial expired, I installed the Office 2003 I had on my old -- now dead -- computer. I now find that I can't open the Word and Excel files I created with the 2010 version. Is there a 'cloud' site where I could send the 2010 files and have them returned to me as standard .xls and .doc files? Or is there a free converter available for download?

Hey guys, my wife is taking a course that requires her to install Office 2010. The issue is that she wants to preserve her current setup which includes Office 2003 and 2007 existing side-by-side on her Windows 7 (64-bit Home Edition) notebook.
The 2003/2007 setup is not one that she really wants to mess with (i.e., she has no interest whatsoever in uninstalling the two Office suites that she currently has), so ideally she would like to have Office 2010 installed temporarily (for the duration of her course) on the machine without interfering with the current setup.
What is the most painless way of doing this that does not involve shelling out for a second computer?
 

Answer:Installing Office 2010 on a machine with Office 2003/2007

Hi, welcome to the forum,
I had a similar situation here but in the end I opted out.

I removed both Office 2003 and 2007 and installed 2010, I then used virtual XP and installed 2003 there, 2007 and 2010 are too similar and the dll's will 'bite' along the way.

Even my 2003 and 2007 gave me issues after some time.

Having upgraded my desktop PC to Office 2010, I need to import three seperate letter template files for use in Word. These were lost during the upgrade but are on my laptop, which still runs Office 2003, as .dot type files and I also have them copied to a memory stick. However, I am at a loss as to how and where to save them into the new programme on my desktop PC. If it makes a difference, I should add that I do not use Libraries and have disabled them.
Can anyone advise please?

Answer:Importing template files from Office 2003 to Office 2010

Problem solved - with a bit of advice from a friend! Unsurprisingly, it's very simple.

- Open the document in Word
- Click "Save As"
- Scroll to top of folder list and, under "Microsoft Word", click "Templates"
- Name the template and select "Word Template" in the "Save As Type" list
- Save it

I still don't know where they are saved to but I can now call them up and use them.

Cheers

In 2003 I purchased a laptop and installed Microsoft Office 2003 using a disk and the numerical key. I should note that I no longer have that disk but I still had the numerical key. In 2013 Microsoft had a special offer to upgrade to Office 2010 using a download from their website and using a new numerical key. I have now purchased a new computer (and will be scrapping the old computer ) and would like to bring this Microsoft office 2010 from the old laptop to the new one. Since I no longer have the original disk can I just download the file from the Microsoft website? If I can which numerical key should I try to use?

Hi, all. I hope you can help me.
 
1. I was previously working on a 32-bit Compaq computer that ran Windows XP, and I used Microsoft Office Student and Teacher Edition 2003 for my work.
 
2. I bought a new computer, a 64-bit Dell running Windows 7 Professional, which came equipped with Microsoft Office Home and Business 2010.
 
3. Because I prefer the MS Word program on Office 2003 to 2010, I installed that on my new computer with the proper keycode. (During setup, I chose only to install the old Word 2003 -- not the old Outlook, Excel or Powerpoint programs.)
 
4. Installation was successful. The Office 2010 files reside in the Programs directory; the Office 2003 files reside in the Programs (x86) directory.
 
5. I then instructed Windows 7 to open .doc and .docx files with the 2003 Office Word program.
 
6. The problem is: Whenever I choose Word 2003 from the Program menu (or click on an actual doc file), I receive the msinstall message, "Please wait while Windows configures Microsoft Office Standard Edition" for about ten seconds. Then Word 2003 opens. I checked the Windows Event Viewer, which indicates that during this hang, either Word 2003 or Word 2010 is apparently looking for components it can't find.
 
7. Curiously, if I navigate directly to the Office 2003 folder (called OFFICE 11) and double-click directly on the Winword.exe file, Word comes up immediately. It's only when I double-click on an actual file (or invoke Word 2003 from ... Read more

Answer:PLEASE HELP RESOLVE OFFICE 2003 AND OFFICE 2010 CONFLICT

 When you switch between an Office 2010 program and an older Office program, it goes through that configuring process.  I read somewhere that this is because each version of Office has entries in the registry with the same names but are set differently so it has to go through this little gooney bird dance.  If it's the ribbons (and lack of the menu bar) you don't like in Office 2010, there's a neat little program called Ubitmenu you can download and install that gives you an old style menu bar with most of the Office 2003 features on it.
 
Good luck.

I've downloaded a copy of Office 2010 Pro Plus 32-bit from IUWare. Since it's free to Indiana University students, it seems like the best place to go. It comes as a self extracting archive, and once it's finished extracting the installation starts by itself. It looks like it installs the exact same way as any other source, save the initial extraction.

My problem is that during the actual installation, a message will appear after a few moments saying that the installer can't locate certain files and asks for you to define the path (each time I try to install it complains about a different file). When I browse for the missing file USING THE INSTALLER, it either isn't there, or the installer won't let me click the correct folder. It says "Invalid Location." But if I look for it myself in explorer, it's always right where it's supposed to be.

I've had this problem installing previous versions of office, with both IU sources and others, and a simple re-download usually takes care of it. I've already downloaded this 4 different times and would like to find a fix. I was just wondering if anyone here has had this problem and could help me out.

All that is involved is the installation of the new version after uninstalling the old one. Once you have done that all of your documents will remain precisely where you left them and all will be readable by the new program.

I would say, BOX Store, and get only what you need. If Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Onenotes is fine, then get the Home and student. This comes with a license for three (3) machines, for less than $150.00 US.
But if you need Outlook, then you will have to get the Pro version or better.

Hi,


I need to have Office 2003 and Office 2010 installed on the same computer. They won't be running at the same time, but both will be used occassionally so both of them must be installed.

I read somewhere that this is not officially supported but possible.


What's the proper way of doing so? Do I install the Office 2003 first and then 2010?

Is there a way to prevent the setup from running each time I'm switching between the versions? It takes up a lot of time and I think it's unneccessarry.

In a blog post over at Technet Microsoft announced that the free upgrade period starts today which means that users who purchase Office 2007 from today on will be eligible for a free upgrade to Microsoft Office 2010 once it comes out.

What you'd do to get the upgrade price I don't know but Office 2013 IS available for download. Try phoning / emailing -- actually a better option these days is to use a FAX believe it or not for this type of question. Emails tend to get lost as people have 100'000's to deal with, phone calls are diabolical --endless menu systems, loads of waiting and people on the other side of the planet who are incredibly difficult to understand.

The lowly fax machine when it chatters into life usually gets INSTANT attention these days . !!

I recently Purchased Office 2003 Pro and was attempting to install this over my Office XP Pro Installation.

Does anyone know if I can easily upgrade my Office 2003 Student version to Office Basic or Standard upgrade versions2007?

Answer:Upgrade Office 2003 Student to Office Basic 2007

Yes, the 2007 Home and Student version of Office 2007 will do it. There's no upgrade for it, just the CD with Word, Excel, Power Point and One Note, stick it in and follow the install instructions. However, if you're going to be using Office 2007 and transferring files between versions i.e. Office 2007 at home and Office 2003 somewhere else, it's worth knowing that Office 2007 uses a new file format that isn't recognised by earlier versions of Office. For Word its .docx, for Excel its .xlsx, and Powerpoint .pptx.You can download software for earlier versions to read the new format, or alternatively, anything you may transfer can be saved in the old format. Thought I'd point it out as you mention a student version of Office 2003, and not all institutions will be using Office 2007 yet.

Answer:Office 2010 or office 2003

If you Google for the comparison you will read several differing opinions. Lots of people did not like the new Ribbon style when they changed from 2003, it is a personal choice thing. Most say that recalculation in Excel 2010 is faster than in Excel 2003 and they like Powerpoint integration better. Spreadsheets made in 2003 can be read in 2010 but not necessarily vice versa.
Personally I am pleased with the changes, but if you have the space available on your laptop there is no reason why you cannot have both on it. Get used to the differences and then make up your mind later which you prefer.
I presume that the version of Office 2010 that was installed was a legal one and that it has been activated correctly. It would not be good to choose 2010, delete 2003 and then find 2010 will not update etc.

Answer:Office 2003 or Office 2010

Is it a newish laptop? It sounds to me like you have a free trial version of Office 2010, which you may not have realised, and have also installed Office 2003. The free trial of 2010 has now run out, which is why it wants you to activate it (i.e. pay for it...) If you want to keep 2003 and lose 2010 - which I'm guessing you do - then you should be able to uninstall 2010 from add/remove programs.

I have 2 different Windows 7 systems that have this problem. When I install Office 2007 using the "Upgrade" option it does not remove Office 2003 and leaves the system in a confused state, especially in regards to Outlook. When I initially start Outlook it will say it is configuring Outlook 2007, but subsequent screens indicate an Outlook 2003 utility is being used.

With great pain I can manually set the default email client and do other pieces of the configuration and get Outlook 2007 running, but as soon as I reboot the system, it reverts to a confused state. I have tried all four methods Microsoft prescribes in KB2639197 to remove Office 2003. I have also used 3rd party uninstallers?specifically Revo and CCleaner. It still comes back after a reboot. I have removed BOTH Office 2007 and Office 2003 and I can reboot any number of times and it stays uninstalled, but as soon as I insert the Office 2007 install disc it ONLY gives me the upgrade option and returns to this state where both 2003 and 2007 products appear installed in a confused state.
 

Answer:Office 2007 Upgrade - Office 2003 Remains and won't go away

You could do a System Restore, if the restore point is there from when Office 2k3 was installed. You can also try Microsoft's Fix It tool at http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...3/140b4079-8899-4f15-a86c-608babe588bb?auth=1 but you need the original install disc and the key for Office 2003. Or the Office Removal Wizard http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/office-2003-resource-kit/office-removal-wizard-HA001140177.aspx

I recently installed the Microsoft Office 2010 Beta, but this morning its intro screen stays stuck at "Starting Microsoft Office Click-to-Run." Googling it resulted in only two threads, neither of them having the answer.

I'm back to using Office 2007, by simply setting my Word and Excel documents to open by Office 2007 by default, but now my Word and Excel icons have become much less pretty, such as my Word icons becoming a very plain "DOCX" icon instead of the normal "blue W" icon. I checked, and the file types are still regular Word documents. Is there a way to get the pretty icons back?

Answer:Office 2010 Problems: "Starting Microsoft Office Click-to-Run" & Unattractive DOCX icons for Word documents.

Regarding changing the icon:
Go to either My Computer or Windows Explorer.
Click Tools, Folder Options, File Types tab.
Scroll down to the DOCX file type (file types are in alphabetical order), click on it one time to highlight it.
Click the Advanced button.
The "Edit File Type" screen appears.
There is a Change Icon button in the top right area.
Click the Change Icon button.
You should have other icon choices to pick from.
Side note: If you don't like any of those icons, you can always hit the Browse button,
and browse to where other icons are, (you can assign any icon to any file type that you want, it is a matter of personal preference).
Icons are found in .exe files (executables), some (not all) .dll (dynamic link library) files, and .ico files.

Hi all

I am using Windows XP and office 2003. I am using Microsoft Office Picture Manager to view tif files.

PROBLEM:

1. I open a tif file.
2. I make an annotation change eg: Use the hightlighting tool to hightlight some text. Fine, no problem!
3. I save the document.
4. I close the document and try reopening it:

I get this error:

"The file selected is not a valid Microsoft Document Imaging file"



I recreated my Windows XP profile and this resolved the problem

That was two weeks ago........now the problem is back!

Any ideas?

I've been thinking about upgrading and have a few questions about doing so.1. Will office 2007 install over 2003?2. If not and I have to un-install 2003, do I have to backup all my contacts and email?3. I have noticed that 2007 has an instant search facility, do I really need that in a home environment?4.

Answer:Upgrade Office 2003 to Office 2007

What edition of Office 2007 are you looking at buying and more importantly WHAT do you expect out of your Office 2007 experience. Yes the interface is different, there are new file formats and wizards - but if you are happy with Office 2003 then you may not find 2007 much different.That said - I used both and I prefer 2007. As a student, the obvious choice for me was Home & Student 2007 - I only upgraded to make use of the new reviewing tools in Word, such as the tri-pane review feature - which has greatly helped in writing my thesis. That said, the Home version can be installed on 3 PC's, but doesn't include Outlook - so your contact an e-mail question is moot if you want this version. (You get a useless copy of Onenote instead, why not Access?!) So you will need Office Standard and up for Outlook...If you purchase a non-upgrade edition then you can install Office 2007 alongside 2003 - the only problem here is that Outlook must either be 2003 OR 2007, can't be both. I found that my installation of Office was installed in the same place as my previous Office XP installation and the programmes were removed automatically (except for the ones that aren't included in my 2007 version.)Can't comment specifically with Outlook as I have a uni account with e-mail facilities so I don't use the software...You ask about pitfalls - well be aware that Office 2007 saves all files in a new XML format, whilst you can read older formats from previous versions, the older versions CANNOT by defa...

Thanks
 

Answer:Solved: MS Office XP upgrade to MS Office 2003

You should be able to purchase an upgrade to Office 2003, as long as you have a qualifying program in your computer. Once you have upgraded, don't get rid of the older program! You'll never be able to do an uninstall/reinstall without the qualifying program (which I found out to my disgust and chagrin).

Answer:office 2003 or 2010

Either is fine, but a lot changed between 2003 and 2007 so if you're not familiar with 2010 there's a learning curve to it. I generally think that going with the more recent version is better because it keeps you up to date with the current technology. You don't use it professionally now, but someday you might, and it would be good to already know it. Just my two cents.

Question: Office 2010 + 2003

Hi, currently installed on my machine is Office 2010. I want install Access 2003 because I'm going to be doing a course which requires 2003. 2010 is not backward compatible to 2003!

Now I've done a duel install on my Toshiba Satellite (32bit) and they seem to have cozied up together very well. However on my main machine (64bit system) as soon as I put the 2010 Office on it seemed to have kick 2003 three out of bed
I'm assuming it’s a dust up between the 32bt system and the 64bit??????
I could do the course on the lappy but I prefer 32inch screen to 17 any day!

Access 2003 is not installed at the moment but I'm thinking should I install it to another directory "Programme Files" for win 7U or X86?
But on checking out dir's it seems that "office12/14 are in Prog files and there is "office 12" in X86 not sure if that is left over bits from when 2003 was previously Installed.

How do I get both to work on my 64bit system like they do on my 32bit system?????

Thank you for reading

Answer:Office 2010 + 2003

This is what you need, I guess.

As to our other question, uninstalling Office rarely removes the corresponding Office12 (or whatever version number) folder from ProgramFiles, so I guess that's where it's coming from.

Which version is your Office 2010? If 32 bit, then the fact that your OS is 54 bit would make no difference.

Hi,

Is it possible to have both Office 2003 and 2010 installed on the same computer? (I have licenses for both of them. Some family members prefer the old one, some prefer the new one. That's why.)

If so what are the exact steps to do it? I tried it but 2003 didn't open anymore (it showed error messages)
Also I read updates are not going to work anymore if I do this. Are there any more updates being released for the 2003 edition?
The computer is running Windows 7 Ultimate x86 so it's an x86-only Office (I know it's not possible to mix x86-x64 Office versions but it lets me install 2010 without upgrading the older one)

Also I want to set and keep the older Office as the default handler for all filetypes it supports. How do I do that? 2010 is keep overriding it.

Since support is about to end for 2003 version, I think that it may be time to change. If I go to either 2007 or 2010 version, I think that I understand that "opening and reading" an "XLS" file will not be any problem since you can use the
Compatibility Pack". I am not so sure about the templates ( XLT ) files. Will I be able to continue those files, because I use them on a daily basis. Will an XLT file open and be able to be used in either 2007 or 2010 ?

Answer:Changing from Office 2003 to either 2007 or 2010

XLS files can still be opened. Supposedly it is possible that some things might appear a little different when opening them with newer versions, but I've never found this to be true. And while I can't tell you for sure, I'm 98% sure XLT files will open just fine too. Basically you can open old format files in newer versions of Office, but you can't open newer format files with older Office versions.

Hello,

I have a Gateway laptop with Windows 7.

Last week I noticed there was a trojan on my laptop, so just to be safe, I deleted my entire operating system/data and did a clean installation...I wanted to just start fresh.

To do the re-installation I used my Gateway System Disc, Recovery Discs, and Languaue Disc but during the screen where my laptop was installing pre-factory programs it got stuck at Office 2010 (46/56).

After waiting for almost a day I restarted my computer but it loaded back to the exact same spot. I can exit out of the screen with CTRL-ALT-DEL but if I log out of Windows or restart my computer I'm right back to being stuck at Office 2010.

I have no idea what else to do and I would really appreciate some help. Thank you.

After downloading the Techincal Preview of Office 2010 i thought i'd make this thread detailing the installation & some notes/screenshots of it in action.

Installation can be run from both DVD & Hard Disk, just double-click the Setup.exe file.

Check the box to agree to the terms, then click next.

[Personal preference] the best way to guarantee a full installation is to choose a custom install by clicking Customize.

You can select each component (application) that is installed with Office, I find the best option is to Run all from My Computer. This will install all Office 2010 applications.

Once done, click Install Now to finalise the installation & commence copying files.


First thing to note is the rather flashy splash screen that runs with each application

and the sheer speed at which the apps open up (sooo much fast than 2003 & even 2007).

All applications run as expected, with a whole host of new features at your fingertips (far too many to mention ).

Below is a list of the main Office 2010 (and indeed every Office) applications.

Microsoft Access:

Microsoft Excel

Microsoft Powerpoint

Microsoft Publisher

Microsoft Word


There is (as of yet) no key required to activate this Technical Preview.

Hope you ind this useful

Answer:Office 2010 (Installation & Screenshots)

Not sure I like the look of 2010.

It seems like visually they've taken a step back from 2007. I liked the blue colour and the drop down menu design with the jewel. This just looks a bit bland. Plus the tabs and especially the replacement for the jewel look kind of clunky...

Does 'Technical Preview' mean that this version is just for testing out the interface and features with aesthetics being added at a later date?

I managed to run Keyfinder on a computer before doing a clean install of XP.

There were several versions of office apps installed, Word 2002, Excel 2003, and a Unidentifiable Office 2010 installation.

I want to skip the previous versions and go ahead and install the 2010 installation, but which is it? Not sure if its a complete Office install or just Word, etc.

I have the product ID and the product key, but how can I use the product ID to find what it is? I looked online but all I can find is how to find the product ID which I already have :SMH:

I just downloaded the Office 2010 Beta and tried to install it. I took the option to leave my current installation of Office 2007. It started and then through the following error at the end and rolled everything back.

Error 1935. An error ocurred during the installation of assembly component
{167A8BB9-1A64-362B-8E09-4FD881F0108E}. HRESULT:0x80070091

Any ideas?

Answer:Error in Office 2010 Installation

There seems to be quite a few issues when trying to install the beta on systems that have or have had a previous version of Office on them. The only way I got it to install on my system was using a program called RipOutOffice2007, then going in and deleting all of the Office folders from my Program Files directories.

If you want to keep your 2007 install, then this is not a method you want to use. Hopefully someone can give you some advice on getting them running side by side.

I don't know if maybe I'm the only one who runs into this problem or if it happens to a lot of people, but it seems to come up a lot for me.

I have had this issue on many computers but right now I am setting up an old Dell Latitude E5510 for an employee and I have reformatted, installed all drivers, and programs needed. I installed Office 2007, because this employee won't really be using the computer much.

I start up Windows Updates today and it has me downloading 3 updates for Windows 2010. This computer had Office 2010 on it before it was reformatted. Is it still sensing Office 2010 buried somewhere in the files and that's why it's asking me to install updates for it? Does Office 2007 use updates that are also made for 2010(and are only labled 2010)? Anyone have any ideas? I don't believe it's hurting anything, but I am curious!

Thanks

Answer:Find Office 2010 Updates, When Office 2010 Isn't Installed?

I get those type of updates for my Office 2003. There are some later updates that can be applicable. For example, I installed a converter that lets me open later MSWord formats (2003 is doc) and now I get updates for later Office versions.

It seems that there may be a problem in Office 2010. I just installed it to the standard MS default/recommended settings .........all looked good...used Word great..until I use Excel and each time I try to use excel it sets off an 'Office Configuration' screen which I can not stop..it take a few minutes and then loads OK. I tried to launch it from the installed prgrams icon but there is no files on 'start in' etc..I tied to create a shortcut to the desktop from the excel.exe file and get the same reconfigure issue..it seem that somehow I don't have either permissions or I have a corrupt install..all Office suite works eventually Anyone know how to fix it..please?

Answer:Office 2010 Pro Plus Win7 x 64 Excel reconfigures Office 2010

Have you ever had a previous version of Office on this copy of win7?
or

Do you have any component of a previous office suite installed still

I have seen this in the past with Viso that was due to remnents of an earlier trial remaining on disk and in the registry.

I also found that if I cancelled the configuration screen the Viso would load without problems without the need to wait for completion.

There are some rather involved solution stems on Microsoft website - cannot find them at the present but will try to look for them.

The problem was that I could never get the removal steps to actually cure the issue and I put up with the error until my next re-install of Win7, which was not to long in the case of that system

hi
i have installed office 2010 and in excel i need to save files in wk4 file formate .. and excel 2010 is lacking this feature. whereas excell 2003 has this feature.

can i install excell 2003 alongside office 2010 ?
i need word/outlook/access/onenote/ in 2010 format . whereas excel in 2003.

what are its implications?

Answer:install excell 2003 alongside office 2010

Are you aware that Microsoft will no longer support Office 2003 after April 8, 2014. So you will lose support & updates on Excel 2003, which could make it very vulnerable to virus attacks etc..

Is the wk4 file format used in saving Lotus 123 spreadsheets?. With the above in mind is there any way, you can change over to the fully Excel system, as it would seem you are getting forced into a corner & have to eventually change over.

Whether Excel 2003 will work alongside Office 2010 is something I don't know.

Hi,

Where I work we use multiple versions of Office (XP, 2003 & 2007) later next month our organisation is rolling Microsoft Office 2010 out system wide.

What I really wanted to ask is, has anybody come across a sort of conversion guide from say Office 2003 to Office 2010 so people who have been using 2003 etc. and have very little experience with other newer versions of Office can find out where all the functions (the basics even) are located in 2010?

2007 to 2010 isn't a big jump but 2003 to 2010 is and that's mainly what we have been using.

Let me know if you have as I've been looking on Google today but have yet to find anything good enough that I can use.

Thanks

I just purchased MS Office Professional Academic 2010 and I installed it on my desktop. Now I want to install it on my laptop. I went to the MS Office support to download the trial version, then I thought I could enter my product key. But when I try to create an account it keeps telling me I can't use an email with a hotmail or MSN domain which makes no sense. So how do I do this? Do I need to create a disc off my desktop then install it onto my laptop? I want to create a backup CD anyway, but not sure how to do this. Do I save all the files to a disc? I will try the Digital River site where I purchased it from.

I've recently downloaded Office 2010 Professional Plus from the Microsoft Home Use Program. When I try to install it, the process encounters an error (actually crashes explorer.exe most times through the installation process) - the problem is, it doesn't specify an error code! I'm not overly computer savvy, so maybe I'm looking in the wrong spot, but the extractor doesn't seem to be extracting the setup files into my Temp folder and there is no log file located there for me to reference for an error code. I have lots of space on my drive (~30 GB), so setup should not be aborting due to space limitations. I'm running Windows 7 Professional and it is kept current according to Windows Update.

I've gone through the forums here and other Google sources and tried everything I could find from deleting old Office installations, to changing permissions, etc. Mind you, there isn't much troubleshooting information given that Office 2010 is still only early in its release - I can't even find the official Microsoft support site for the suite. My old installation of Office 2007 is deleted (folders and registry entries) and I've restarted many times, without effect.

I am not encountering any error when I try to install Project Professional 2010 or Vision Premium 2010 (they install and work fine).

I installed Office 2010 today from genuine disks that had a product key on one of the sleeves; however, it didn't ask for a product key as they ran and reran and reran it the rest of the day.

I'm sure that at some point they will have to use that key; but, I would like to know: What's up with that?
 

Answer:Office 2010 didn't ask for a product key on installation -- why?

More information: This was a copy of Microsoft Office donated by Microsoft to a non-profit organization and supposedly had a six-user license. They have been using this on several computers for several days now and there has still been no pop-up asking for a product key.

Surely someone here has installed Office 2010 besides me. What is your experience? What is your take on this?

This is a legit disk. Why is no product key being asked for?

Hi,

I tried running MS Office 2010, when the progress bar reaches the end, it rolls back and installation stops. It then says MS Office 2010 has encountered an error during setup. No error codes are shown.

Also note that progress bar seems to take some time.

Fixes I tried:
1. Completely cleaning Office 2007 and all other files of remaining files, using Fix It and then manually making sure there are no leftover registry entries, folders or anything else. Followed Microsoft article to completely clean previous installations.
2. Tried installing in Safe Mode. It was swift to display the same error message.

How do I fix it?

I am on Windows 7 32 Bit.
 

Answer:MS Office 2010 rolls back during installation!!

"No error codes are shown"

Specific error codes and messages will not be shown for a failed Microsoft installation unless "verbose logging" is enabled.
To enable verbose logging on Windows 7, see this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2545723

After enabling it, attempt the Office installation again and post the additional error information (unless the additional information enables you to fix the error yourself).

I would like to perform an Office 2003 Installation for RIS. As such, I want to install it, so that it does not ask for product key/activation before the install, but rather, it asks for product key on first launch of the program.

(We do not have an open license for it and purchase licenses individually, so I need to be able to manually enter the keys)

Any ideas?

Basically, like when you buy a computer from an OEM, how it comes (when you launch an office app it asks for the product key and activation) that is how I want to be able to install it...

Thanks.
 

Answer:Office 2003 Installation for RIS

You need to do this using the Custom Installation Wizard in the Resource Kit and a GPO to push the installation out...or use an administrative image (what I do).

Hi,I've lost my original CD for Office Pro 2003 but I need to reinstall it as something seems to be corrupted. I'm not technical at all so need help/advice on what to do with a brown box I have with Microsoft OEM System Builder Pack (Office Pro 2003 Win32 EN w/SP2 1pk DSP OEI CD) written on it. I was sent this directly by my insurance company two years ago after I was burgled and my computer was stolen. I have no idea what this is or what to do with it - system builder pack sounds scary to me, so have never opened the box and it is still sealed.Will this let me re-install it? And do I need anything else? The website said something about preinstallation kits and I have no idea what they're on about. I'm scared to try incase I mess up my computer. I'm quite desperate and on the verge of throwing the *censored* thing out of the window as I urgently need to get to reports I can't currently access.Many thanks for any help/insights!

Answer:Please help me with Office 2003 installation

I suggest you call Microsoft Technical Support and describe what happened and what you have.  They can walk you through the procedure based on the OEM disk and verify what you have.They may deem the disk incompatible, or they may help you install what you have.

I have begun to get a problem when using Office 2003. When I tried to start Excel, for instance, it attempted to INSTALL the program, rather than run it. So I inserted the CD and tried to repair it, and then to reinstall the suite, but each time I get an error message saying, in short, "file not found - <CD drive>:\Office\O1561403.CAB". But I have checked in the CD, and the file is there. So I can't run the program, and I cannot install it or repair it. The only other course I can think of is to uninstall the whole suite and reinstall it, but, first, I don't know that that will work either, and secondly, I would lose all my templates and custom dictionaries which I have built up over years.

I am running XP Home, with only one account, with full Administrator privileges. Can anyone help, please?

Later: I have found that the problem only occurs with Excel. Publisher, Outlook and Word all run ok, except that, in Word, blank pages and templates start from the very top, with no top margin and no way of creating one.
