Have you tried uninstalling all versions of Publisher, then deleting it's folder under "C:\Program Files\"? If you haven't, I would try this then restart the machine and install the retail version again. Sometimes an uninstaller can leave files behind and they need to be manually deleted. This can be especially true in the case of a demo.

If this works, or doesn't work, just let me know :)

I just uninstalled the only version of publisher on the system.
When I go to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office, there are no sub folders for Publisher.

1.  I deleted the complete folder.
2.  Reinstalled the complete office program.
3.  Publisher again showed the same error message.
4.  Went to Publisher, Help, which took me to Office Updates.
5.  Ran updates and all is OK.
