Office Mac installation will not go past activation

I have tried installing Office 2011 for Mac and everything goes fine until it gets to the screen that says your copy of Office for Mac is now activated.  After that I get the spinning beach ball for hours and then have to force quit.  I then run the complete uninstall steps as listed by Microsoft, reinstall and everything goes fine until this message which sits and sits.
I have no idea why?

Any suggestions?

How about starting Disk Utility and running a disk repair and permissions repair, before installing?
