Need help with Office 2007 disc on Windows 7 [SOLVED]

Postby phileysmiley » Wed Jan 13, 2010 1:09 am

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here. I have Windows 7 and an Office Ultimate 2007 64-bit disc from MSDN. I've used this disc many times to install on XP and Vista. For some reason I can't figure out how to install it now. When I insert the disc I get a list of applications on the disc and I see Office Ultimate, but when I open it I just go through a tree of files and I cannot seem to find the installation file. I seem to recall that when I popped the disc in there was a screen asking if I want to install but it's not there.

I'm sure this is something simple but in my old age I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Thanks.

Don't you have setup.exe amongst those files at all?

Yes. When I run it I get:

Setup cannot find the required setup controller file. Either there was a network error, an error reading from the CD, DVD, or other installation media, or a problem with the package you down loaded.

Whoa! Just for the heck of it I tried Start > Run and navigated to the setup.exe and it worked! ^*^

These are the files I've got on mine, excluding some I've added like Sounds, the Key, Save as PDF and the .iso

Fixed! See above. I don't know why the setup didn't run by opening it directly but, oh well.
