it is interesting that i didn't have the same issue when i installed the same version of Office in a VM a few months ago, but i got the same error when trying the same steps on the same VM today.

any thought please?

thanks heaps,
bbao

So maybe the update isn't applicable to that machine since it is already installed?

FYI - there is no Office component previously installed. The VM was restored to a tine point which has no any Office program installed.

the issue has been resolved - just install the the latest update 14.7.7 instead of the first update 14.1.0, because the Office 2011 installer is for 14.5, not 14.0.
