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."

Hello,

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.

Any ideas?

I just dealt with this. Download a trial of RegVAC and clean your registry out. Either that or search your registry for the uninstall string and pass it on the command line to uninstall office. If that key still exists the uninstall is not completing.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{1CB6C387-65A7-327F-B4A5-7DDC75A291AF}

In that key or one similar Go to the Uninstall section of the registry and press F3 in the dialog type in "Office" no quotes and click ok. It will take you right to the key that whill have a value like this:

UninstalString="MsiExec.exe /X{1CB6C387-65A7-327F-B4A5-7DDC75A291AF}"

I would try the uninstallstring effort before I used RegClean and with RegVAC just get the trial.
