Windows 7: Can't install Office Professional Plus 2007 - setup.exe error

Can't install Office Professional Plus 2007 - setup.exe error

I've just put Windows 7 on laptop and tried reinstalling student version of Office Professional Plus 2007 (which was on there before but with Vista). It gets nearly halfway through installation before it says that it can't find setup.exe and asks me to browse folders to find where it is. I've tried looking but can't find it and so have to abort process.
Can anyone help?

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Was this a pre-installed version of Microsoft Office or do you have a DVD for it?

If it is a DVD you could try creating a new folder on your hard drive and copy the contents of the DVD to it, and then try to install it from there.

If it was pre-installed and you've installed Windows 7 instead of Vista the Office files may be missing or corrupted.

Was it a clean install of Windows 7 or an upgrade?

Have you checked to see if you have a Windows.old folder? If you have take a look in it and see what files are in there from your Vista installation.

I have a DVD for it and I've tried copying the contents of the DVD onto a file on the desktop. It made no difference.
I bought the Windows 7 as an upgrade but when it came to it it did a clean install.
I've looked in the windows.old folder and tried pointing the installation process at that but it just kept saying 'not a valid location'.

If you have the Microsoft Office DVD the set up .exe file should be on it.

It sounds as though the disc may be corrupted.

Do you have a friend who has a the same version of Office as you? If so, you could try installing that and use your product key.
