    Can't install Office 2007 on Win7

    Just before going to bed I needed to finish off setting up a laptop by installing Office 2007.

    Ran setup - entered the key - went off to watch end of X factor - came back to find that it can't find an msi file!!!

    (The file exists and is sitting in a sub-folder but the install says its not there!)

    Tried copying all the files to a folder on the C Drive and started again - same result.

    Just what's needed on a Sunday night!

    If there a generic problem with Office 2007 and Win7 or have I just been lucky

    regards

    Simon

    if i had to guess i'd say itwas a corrupt download or a scratched cd.

    I would have to agree with Strawberry to be honest, I have installed Office 2007 in the past on Windows 7 although now it is generally just 2010 but i have never had any issues with it, if i have it has been down to a bad ISO / EXE download or/ Disc has been scratched to death.

    Re-Download and try again.

    same as what the above have said - although very nice and convenient thats all the vl stuff is download it can be a right pain in the backside when you need to do stuff in a rush and cant because of dodgy downloads!

    This morning I dug out my CD Master and it installed fine

    I'll re-copy the files back onto by portable drive again and see what happens the next time.
