Microsoft Office Basic 2007 on Windows Vista Home Premium x64 - "Microsoft Office <product> has not been installed for the current user. Please run setup to install the application."
Posted on 2011-02-25
I am trying to use Microsoft Office Basic 2007 on my Windows Vista Home Premium X64 system. However, every time I try to open up an Office application, I get the following errror:
"Microsoft Office <product> has not been installed for the current user. Please run setup to install the application."
When I hit "OK" or close this dialogue box, the office program that had opened up in the background immediately terminates.
I have completely uninstalled (using the MS Office Remover tool) and reinstalled the program, but the error still persists. I have checked permissions on the files, and the current user account is set to have access to them.
