Hi Eddy, welcome to the Seven Forums.

To install an upgrade version of Office, you need to have a licensed MsOffice installed on your system. Trial license does not qualify for upgrading.

I have the licenced version of the upgrade..what i did and was told by Microsoft to dnload the trial then instead of the trial licence use my upgrade licence to authenticate the software..but i keep getting this issue in win 7

"" The setup Controller has encountered a problem during install "

Any idea what that means
