Thanks for the reply.
I burnt copies of both files to disc with ImgBurn, which when run with MSE temporarily disabled replicated the errors detailed above.
This led me to believe that the downloads were corrupt.
Next step was to access the download files using VPN and Firefox (11.0). I opted to run rather than save the download, mounted with the virtual DVD drive.
I am pleased to advise that Office Pro Plus 2010 installed without error, activated and is now patched with SP1 and 27 updates.
For information I am uncertain whether it was Internet Explorer 9, or specifically the 64-bit edition that I have installed, the culprit.
