Error 2755 Office XP instal on Windows 7

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545. It came with Vista Home Premium. I need to add it to a Windows Server 2008 domain. I purchased Windows 7 Business and installed it. I then attempted to install Office XP Pro. I am getting the following error:

Error 2755. An internal error has occured. (3 G:\PRO.MSI ) Contact Microsoft Product Support Services (PSS) for assistance...

I did some research on the Internet and based on the suggestions on Microsoft's site, I checked and see that the permissions on the Installer folder under Windows are set to Everyone - Read, Administrators - FullControll, and system - FullControll.

In addition to the above, go to Control Panel and turn off User Access Control (at least temporarily) to see if that helps. ... Thinkpads_User

OK, turned off UAC and got the same error.

It seems to me I saw something here about it working on Vista. However, Office XP is long out of support and it is not supposed to work on Vista. So it may be that it just won't run on Windows 7. I suggest you look on eBay or some like place for a copy of Office 2003 (or even Office 2007). I have Office 2007 Pro running on Windows 7 Pro perfectly, although some persons have had difficulty even with this. ... Thinkpads_User

I have installed Office XP Pro on four other laptops running Windows 7. It seems there is something about the hardware on this laptop that produces this error.

I was able to install Office 2007 Pro without problem and will go ahead and use that instead of Office XP Pro.

Thanks to all those that tried to help me.
