Windows 7: Office 2010 Professional Plus won't install

Office 2010 Professional Plus won't install

Hello,
I've just upgraded from vista to win7 ultimate and I've been encountering a number of problems...

I've been trying to reinstall programs and they are not working. Like some aren't extracting correctly or most are saying "files are corrupted, re-download". Does that mean they are not compatible with win7? because I've re-downloaded winrar almost 6 times with the same result...

When I try and complete the setup for Office, it extracts and the cmd prompt thing pops up, then the error message saying I don't have a proper OS but my windows is Activated and genuine with Windows 7 Ultimate.

Hello there, Locketi

Are you installing this Office from a DVD?

What other programs/apps are showing the same behavior?

I've had no problems with Office 2010, so far. I've installed it at least 200 times (exagerating)

I'm installing it from the internet. My university makes software available to us free of charge. I've downloaded the same thing before prior to updating to windows 7 from windows vista last night ....

Other things I've tried are winrar, gimp, and adobe reader (which is working now). It says the file contents are corrupted and i have to re-download.

Maybe the problem resides on your University's servers, because if everything is giving you download errors, have you tried with another PC? just to double check that isn't your PC the one with the issue.

I haven't ... but you know what? I tried re-installing winrar from a different site and it ended up working so maybe it's the download. Should I try and download from a CD instead?

Yes, try to install it from a DVD and use the serial that your University provides for the students (unless there's some kind of special installer, which i doubt)

Wow.. I finally got it to work. I started the setup process directly from the folder. Sorry for wasting your time and brain power, but thanks anyway! Phewwwww!
