When I started the installation disc, it did not ask me where to install. So I do not know how to install it other than C:\programs files directory.
The option where to install may come out after the error 1406 appeared and so I could not proceed any further. Anyway I will try to install with a hope to see that option you have mentioned.
I tried again to install, but there is no installing-place option came out by the error message #1406 came out and I could not go further.
Please go to |MG| Windows Installer CleanUp Utility 7.2 Download to download the file msicuu2.exe. Then run the file, which will install the utility.
When that is complete, click on start>All Programs and find the program "Windows Install Cleanup". Start the program and it will populate with a fairly large number of installed items. Find the Microsoft Office installer on this list. Select it and click remove. Be VERY careful not to select any other programs. Selecting another item by mistake can potentially render your computer unusable. As long as you only click on and remove the Microsoft Office software, you will not have a problem. There may be more than one item related to Microsoft Office, so remove each one. Then exit the utility, restart your computer, and run the download/installation for Microsoft Office again. It should now install correctly.
Sorry for the delay in answering. I tried to download msicuu2.exe. in vain so far
Most of the internet sites handle msicuu2.exe I contacted had not let it download to my PC, instead, they warned me not to use that software telling me if I delete Window Instoller by that software, other importtant installed items will probably be unistalled at the same time. That is why Microsoft have taken out msicuu2.exe from its recommended software list.
Will you let me know some other ways to solve my trouble.
