I am trying to install Office 2010 through a network share.   I copied all of the files from the Office 2010 CD to the shared folder.   When I try to run setup I get a message that the file version is incompatible with the Window version of the machine I am trying to install to.  However, I can load Office 2010 from the disk onto the same machine.   Any ideas on how to fix the problem?

My only suspicion is that perhaps not all of the files got copied (perhaps some are hidden). Use this command to copy the whole CD:

robocopy D:\ C:\Path\To\Office2010\Installation\Source /MIR

Open in new window

The /MIR is important

Exact instructions for preparing an Office 2010 network install point are here:
