Have you tried 'Run as administrator'?

Interesting.
Let's firstly analyze it.

What you will do is the following:
Download the sysinternals suite:
http://download.sysinternals.com/Files/SysinternalsSuite.zip

After that, start the procmon.
Change the filter to: PROCESS_NAME IS X INCLUDE
Replace 'X' with the offices' installation process name.


Make sure all the 5 boxes are checked in the main screen.(refer to the image attached)

When it fails again showing you that message; go to file>save and save.
Let the "events displayed using this filter" checked and check the "extensible markup language".
Save the file and send it to us for further analysis.

Forgot to mention that you can try using psexec -s -i -d path_to_the_application if you don't want to wait for the analysis.

If you don't know how to do that, run CMD(as administrator if necessary) and write:
psexec -s -i "c:\apppath\app.exe"

Open in new window


Remember, copy psexec.exe to your %systemroot% folder.

Well, I guess if you only found this problem, installing office 2010. I had this problem as well! But, what I did was I uninstall the existing office 2007. And, restart the computer. Than I installed office 2010. Try that, if it works!

i dont have any office what so ever on these work stations, they are used for video editing for last few years and office was never installed on it so this doesn't apply in my situation

I am really sorry! I wasn't reading the above comment when entered the other one! Well, Since you said you have used it for very long time...I believe the registry would have been corrupted, or something but I do think there should be another way! I will try my best to help you out!

i agree there is a problem with the registry question is now how can we fix this causing minimum effect on the OS since the preservation of installed Avid video editing software is critical.

Thanks

I understand, Thats why I was asking you to create a restore point before trying this...as well as backup all your existing registry key! Thanks!

lapsa22Commented:
Check out this program! for registry! I am using the full version of this program, but any ways just keep on I guess this will just sort of the problem! (Remember, always Backup your registry and create a restore point as well). Thanks!

problem with these edit stations the way they are configured the restore is not enabled on them one of the annoying thing regarding registry tools are they cost money to fix the issues. the one you attached do you think it will work without having a paid version?
