I think you have downloaded the corrupted file format converter. Please visit MS site and download it, it should work, Also make sure that you have admin rights and remove the old pack before installing new one.

I hope this will resolve your issue.

1. Install Microsoft Core XML Services (MSXML) 6.0:

Download: http://download.microsoft.com/download/2/e/0/2e01308a-e17f-4bf9-bf48-161356cf9c81/msxml6.msi

2. Try installing Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack 3.4 (Compatible with Windows Vista, 2003, XP, 2000) [Don't forget to uninstall previous version] but before you do that run the "Detect and Repair" you can find the option on the Toolbar in the "Help" Tab.

Office Compatibility Pack 3.4 Download: http://files.brothersoft.com/pdf_files/word_processors/FileFormatConverters.exe

I hope it helps, good luck.
