Windows 7: Office 2010 Professional Plus Installation Problems

Office 2010 Professional Plus Installation Problems

I've downloaded a copy of Office 2010 Pro Plus 32-bit from IUWare. Since it's free to Indiana University students, it seems like the best place to go. It comes as a self extracting archive, and once it's finished extracting the installation starts by itself. It looks like it installs the exact same way as any other source, save the initial extraction.

My problem is that during the actual installation, a message will appear after a few moments saying that the installer can't locate certain files and asks for you to define the path (each time I try to install it complains about a different file). When I browse for the missing file USING THE INSTALLER, it either isn't there, or the installer won't let me click the correct folder. It says "Invalid Location." But if I look for it myself in explorer, it's always right where it's supposed to be.

I've had this problem installing previous versions of office, with both IU sources and others, and a simple re-download usually takes care of it. I've already downloaded this 4 different times and would like to find a fix. I was just wondering if anyone here has had this problem and could help me out.

Thanks
