Cannot install Office 2003 on Windows 7 Home
Posted on 2010-01-04
The boss just got a new Laptop for Christmas with Windows 7 Home Edition. He wants Office SBE 2003 (our standard version) loaded. From the original Office SBE 2003 CD, I get just about half way through the install and I get the following Pop-up error:
Error 1303. Setup cannot access the folder C:\Program Files(x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Source Engine. Verifiy that the folder exists and that you have sufficient rights to update it.
I have tried the following with the same results:
Verified the path and folder
Verified permission/ownersship of the parent and subfolders
Run the compatibility tool on the Setup.exe and the Windows Installer on the Office CD
The file that the error occurs on is OSE.exe
As always, should any of your IM forces be caught or ...
oh, sorry wrong disclaimer...
As always any and all help from ya'll is appreciated.
