Hello all! I am a long time reader, but first time asking a question. I've been beating my head on a wall trying to fix this for several hours and figured the experts may be able to help! Currently a handful of machines have this same issue. I am running Windows 7 Enterprise x64, however others are using XP Professional. All systems are members of a domain and the users (myself included) have local Admin rights. Office 2007 is being installed via a push from SCCM. All of the other Office applications work without issue.
First, some history. Initially, opening Infopath 2007 would invoke the Office setup wizard, even though Infopath was already installed. Once that wizard was complete, I would be prompted to provide the install path to OneNote 2003. OneNote was advertised via Group Policy to my User account, however it was never fully installed. Providing the OneNote installation path, the setup process would loop through the Office 2007 setup, then again OneNote 2003. Since then, I've removed the advertisement of OneNote as well as removed and reinstalled Office 2007 multiple times using Add/Remove Programs and the Microsoft cleanup tool found at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928218/
. I've also manually removed several registry entries and configuration files for InfoPath and Office.
Now, when launching Infopath (after a reinstall of course), I get a split second hour glass, then nothing. The install wizard does not show up as before, the application does not launch and there are no errors in Event Viewer.
So, other than the obvious question of "How do I fix this", are there any good tools to remove all traces of Office from the registry? Hundreds of entries seem to remain after uninstalling the software. Since this works on some machines, but not all, I'm assuming registry corruption.
Thank you for any assistance you can provide!
