Windows 7: Office 2007 will not install :(

Office 2007 will not install :(

Ok I am running 64 bit Windows 7 and I put in the CD and try to install office and it just locks up and "windows is trying to find a fix" or whatever and nothing...

I get to enter my CD key in and it just crashes as soon as it starts the install.


The new Open Office is doing the same thing...
Also the Zune software...


any help would be great.

Thanks.

I have Office 2007 Enterprise running on Windows 7 x64 without any problems so do not understand why you should be having difficulties installing it. Is there any error messages?

No it just locks up for no reason..


All three Office, Open Office, and Zune software.

Only 3 things that I can't install for whatever reason... All my other apps installed with no problem!

Hello adamd.


I've installed "Office Home and Student 2007" many times in all of the builds (both 32-bit & 64-bit) I've tried so far with no problems at all; have you tried to install them in Compatibility Mode?

I haven't had to.

Adamd - out of interest, can you access Windows Update, or does it crash Windows Explorer?

(I know this seems a bit of a random thing to ask, but bear with me!)

Hello njek, welcome to Se7en Forums!


Yes, good thinking; that's an interesting consideration.

Ok Microsoft is good that's all I have to say lol!!!!

They found the problem that I ran into and a ton of others seeing how packed that one thread posted was.

"start regedit
navigate to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\SQMClient\Windows\DisabledSessions
rename MachineThrottling to _MachineThrottling"


thanks so much. Office 2007 is installing now.

Guess everything in Beta mode can't be perfect ha.
