Boot Strapper error when installing Office 2013 Pro on new Windows 8.1
While installing Office 2013 Pro on Windows 8.1 get error message "Setup Bootstrapper has stopped working". This is a brand new PC - no previous version of Office - no antivirus. Found several articles on this error - they recommend getting rid of old versions of office. There is no old version of office. Office has never been installed on the PC. Other articles suggest a "Clean Boot" . Did that - same error. Suggestions?

Sometimes, they install trial versions of Office.
One online thread suggested disabling the print spooler service and the instal worked.
Another thread suggested some other changes:
