Cannot Install Microsoft Office Publisher 2007

I'm currently working on a computer for a client where I'm running into the following issue.....

Publisher will not install, instead I receive the following error: Microsoft Office Publisher 2007 has encountered an error during setup.

My initial thoughts were uninstall Microsoft Office 2007 because it must be interfering. I was unable to do this by normal means so I had to use Revo Uninstaller. Office 2007 was successfully uninstalled but the Publisher 2007 error still remains.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

You could try this article from microsoft to see if it helps:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/924619

Also try disabling your webroot before the install, I know webroot can be a huge resource hog.

I did all of the following and still no luck.

I accept the licence agreement and about 60 sec after that the error window comes up.

I appreciate the help though, keep it comin if you think of anything else.

Now just to make sure you did remove all previous office products or upgraded?  Is this a stand alone cd of publisher or is it a package like small business or standard etc.

It did end up being another part of office still installed, I used the windows uninstaller third party program to remove all the excess office files and then ran the setup as administrator and it installed nicely.

Thanks for the help!
