Office 2010 won't install on XP SP3

I'm trying to load office 2010 pro on my Tosh laptop XP SP3. I have followed a number of "fixes" on this site as well as Microsoft's. These have been clearing down any trace of office , taking ownership of various registry key hives, installing windows search 4.0 and a number of others. The install would just abort earlier than before so i have restored the machine back to the start of all these "fixes".
I am back to the install falling over at the end withthe setup.txt file reporting "error attaching to ose error code 0x00000".

It can't be this hard to install a product,, the license is valid and i've tried from DVD and a downloaded X16 file.

I don't post it in readable format so bots don't spam.

If WMI won't start, that's likely it.

Give this a go and let me know.

Interesting indeed.

Can you find the Office setup log and post it?  Maybe there is something in there that may steer us in the right direction.

You might give this a shot too.

Problem seems to be when it gets to ProPlusrWW.msi. There appears to be files in use, then not in use, but by then it has failed.

Try clean booting, then disable AV completely and trying again.

Enable verbose logging this install so we have better logs.

This is the error that starts the rollback:

This sort of points to .NET as the problem.  Make sure XP is fully updated and see if you can get an Office install that includes at least SP1 to try again.

Although this article states issues with Windows App certification kits, there is some information there that may help.

You may be experiencing a path that is too long, so let's try something.  From your own profile, set the %temp% and %TMP% user variables to C:\Temp.  Create that folder first.  Make sure your profile's temp folder now uses this folder and try the installation again.

Open up Services.msc.  Stop Windows Management Instrumentation and set the startup to Manual.  Restart it and try the installation again.
