Hi,

Have you tried the following fix provided by Microsoft?

Go to http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/290301 to download and run the windows installer cleanup.

Just as an FYI, a 30066 exit code is the result of the target machine not meeting the requirements for the Office install.

In some case it could be a lack of disk space and in others it might be an issue with the System RAM. Can you please check if you have atleast 2 GB of space available for install and more than 1GB of RAM too?

TWCMIL: If you are upgrading from a Pre-Release version of the 2007 Microsoft Office system then you will have to do what pari123 suggested. Simply follow the link given by pari123 and run windows installer cleanup.
