Windows 7: Upgrading from Vista x64 to 7 x64 ruined Office 2007

Upgrading from Vista x64 to 7 x64 ruined Office 2007

Hello!
Upgrading from Windows Vista x64 to Windows 7 x64 caused the following errors:
Clicking "Change" button in "Programs and features" with Office 2007 Trial selected gives an error "Setup Error
Setup could not find any available products to install. Please contact your system administrator." in Windows 7 x64. Running setup from Office 2007 Trial downloaded file (to change components) works OK.
How to make the "Change" button work?
Windows Update suggests to install 125kb Office 2007 SP1 repeatedly. I agree to install every time, the update installs "successfully", but Windows Update suggests to install it again next time, in an endless loop.
Running manually downloaded Office 2007 SP1 and SP2 gives an error:
"The detection failed, this can be due to a corrupted installation database".
The automatic Office repairing does not resolve the problems.
Regards

Hi tar and welcome

I know how much of a PITA doing a clean install is but its for situations like this that MS recommended it. The only thin I can think of is if that is the only problem in win 7 that you might be able to un-install and re-install office. There is just too many things to fix in registry and where the files are stored.

Sorry I cant be of Help

Even installing Office 2007 Enterprise does not change

I tried. The same.
Even installing Office 2007 Enterprise does not change the behaviour.

Hi Ken J++!
A clean reinstall is much worse than the problems with the Office 2007. It would take too much time and effort to recover all my programs and settings in the programs.

I am going to guess you've posted this on quite a few forums, because I've read a lot nearly identical threads! Sorry you haven't found any real answer yet. I came across this:

There is a post by n5mj that may help. Scroll about half-way down the thread and try his suggestion.
