Windows 7: Cannot install Office 2007 on Windows 7

Cannot install Office 2007 on Windows 7

Hi everyone! Well, Iīve just installed my Windows 7. Everything looks fine and cool, BUT now i cannot install Office 2007.

When I try to open the DVD it displays a dialog box stating "You must be an administrator to install Office 2007" What the bloody hell?. BUT I AM the administrator and, curiously, I havenīt any problems installing other programs, ONLY WITH Office 2007.

Please, if someone could help, Iīd be really thankfull to him/her. Thank you so much in advance.

You're not an administrator or it would not be giving that error message. Right click on the setup.exe, properties, compatibility tab - run as admin.

Thank you so much for posting, Torrentg. But When I right-clicked the .exe file, the option did not even appear.

I've just checked other threads and i found the solution. Thanks anyways, for trying to help.

You're welcome. Yes the option is always there for all .exe and shortcuts in the compatibility tab.

Boot into safe mode and run the installer as administrator .... should do the trick...

You right click on the .exe file and then click on properties, you will get a compatibility option, there you can check the BOX Next to Run as Administrator....

Hi 0Gravity, I am aware you may no longer need a solution, but I found it on this thread:
The option of right-clicking and the option "RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR" would not even appear in my space.

Read following istructions to enable the "Built-in Administrator Account" on this same this forum, Thatīs what solved my problem.

"How to Enable or Disable the Windows 7 Built-in Administrator Account"

And sorry for buggin you, Sir. I am so short of time that I seldom check my emails.
