I am having a bit of a weird problem where I have installed Office 2010 on Windows server 2008R2 but it doesnt seem to register the install with windows as Office 2010. When I go into programs and featurs and try to change the program I get an error saying it doesnt seem to be install.

I have attached the error.

However all of the files work and I can open up word and all the various other office programs.

Has anybody got any idea why this might be?

    If I go to the Office 2010 installer It just allows me to install again. I am guessing when it installs it doesnt register with Windows properly.
