Problems installing Office 2007 on a 64-bit Windows 2003 Terminal Server

Experts,

Am having an issue where Office 2007 will not install on a 64-bit Windows 2003 Terminal Server. When I try to install (through Add/Remove programs, or through using the user /install mode), the setup.exe crashes immediately with Setup did not complete successfully. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

The error report is below.

The computer is a Windows Server 2003 R2 x64 with SP2. Office 2007 Pro with a Volume License. The Server is a Terminal Server that also (shudder) is the Terminal Server Licensing server as well.

I have tried the following:


Making sure all users are logged out and installing from console
Changing to the user /install
Installing from the Office64MUI.msi / Office64MUISet.msi
Installing it on another x64 server (successfully)
Installing after a fresh reboot from console

I'm guessing it has to do with Terminal Services. Any input would be much appreciated.

Thanks!
