Windows 7: Error opening installation log file - office compatability pack

18 Nov 2011   #1

XP Pro - Vista - windows 7 ultimate/64
Error opening installation log file - office compatability pack

Win 7 SP1 Home premoim with Norton 360, & AOL 9.5

We did the following:

1. Uninstalled all components of Windows Live (known compatability issues with Office 2000).
2. Attempted to install Word 2000, got error "error opening installation log file" - followed Article ID: 217560 which said change the Word setup.ini file as follows:

Template=Office %username%(*).txt

This worked.

3. We attempted to run/install the office compatability pack, and got the same error; we also ran as an administrator with the same result

This remains unresolved, although I have seen blogs with the same problem with Nero, itunes, and other softeware with installing and uninstalling.

What is wrong here, and how do we stop recurrences of this problem?
