Microsoft Office 2010 Installation Problem

Hi Experts,

I have Windows 7 64bit and tried to install Office 2010 but failed. At the end of installation, it rolls back and shows "Microsoft Office 2010 encountered an error during setup" without error code. I cleaned registry, logged in with another local account, used Microsoft Installation Cleanup tool and did try many things but no luck. Do you have any idea what's wrong?

Thanks in advance,
Charles

Browse to the installation CD, right-click setup.exe, and choose "Run as administrator".  See if that helps.

It could be you have a corrupt CD.  You could try disabling antivirus first, and obviously make sure you have the disk space required.  Other than that I'm at a loss.  Your application log might contain a more detailed error message, so if you find that post it here.

Oh another thing.  If you have a trial version of Office 2007, make sure you uninstall that first.

Try opening a command prompt (run as administrator) and typing secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\inf\defltbase.inf /db defltbase.sdb /verbose

This website has good suggestions if that doesn't work.

You could try checking the permissions to the key in question in regedit. Browse to it then right click hit permissions. If you are not in their try adding your using account ticking all the permissions.

Thanks mnation1 and dipazza for the tips, but they didn't work.
However, I found out what caused the problem.  In the Services, below two services were not running.

 - Windows Management Instrumentation
 - Windows Modules Installer

After ran them, Office 2010 installed successfully.

Thanks for your help anyway.
