Microsoft Office 2010 Re-Install issues

I uninstalled it previously because the icons were missing. So trying to reinstall it I keep getting a rather unspecific error just saying "an error has occurred".

I really need this to do homework n stuff.

Hi,

Try these,


1) Create a new administrator account.
2) Log on and launch the installer.

If things don't quite work perfectly now:

3) If you recieve errors accessing your ProgramData folder, use the TakeOwnership registry hack to take control of the entire ProgramData folder, and if needed, create a "Microsoft Office" folder with "Microsoft Office 2010 Tools" inside it under %programdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu.
4) Your error may return at the end of the installation, but don't worry, it's finished and Office is now installed. Switch user (don't log off!) and go back to your own user. Double-check that everything works. Now, to turn off your computer, press and hold the power button for ~five seconds. This will force the computer to shut down instantly, which will close the installer with the error without giving it the opportunity to roll back its changes.

I was able to resolve this same problem myself after about 4 hours - 2 on the phone with MS and 2 experimenting on my own. Here's what I learned:

In my case the problem had to do with either junk in my registry - presumably from a previous version of Office (I had 2007 installed before) or by a problem with file/folder permissions. I can;t say exactly what allowed my Office 2010 to install ok because I was changing several things at a time. What I did was

1. Run CCleaner registry cleaner (it found about 50 problems)
2. Run Auslogics Registry cleaner (it found about 1450 problems)
3. Do the following for c:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Office: Take Ownership, Set permissions to allow everything for your log-on User ID
4. Run the Office 2010 Setup.exe as Adminstrator

This didn't quite work out for me. I ran all the cleaners, but I couldn't find the Microsoft/Office Folder to Take Ownership of.

Re-Installation Issue

I uninstalled Microsoft Office Proffesonal 2010 because I wanted to get rid of SharePoint. I uninstalled it hoping to reinstall it right after. For a couple of days now (actually I think 2-3 weeks) I was not able to reinstall it.
I kept getting a general error : http://i55.tinypic.com/vwzypj.png
I tried many things, with cmd and a whole bunch of stuff but it didn't make a different.
I uninstalled it originally with RevoUninstaller to remove all leftover files, but it seems like there still is something preventing another install.
And I have a digital disk (.iso) file.

This link from Microsoft might help you, it's worth trying. (Ignore the fact that it addresses uninstalling Office, which you already did - the goal here is to make sure you have a clean slate from which to reinstall it without errors.)
