    Default Re-installing Office ProPlus on Win 8

    After upgrading from Vista to Windows 8 I cannot re-install Office ProPlus 2010 from my downloaded exe file. Right when it begins unpacking the .exe the error messge is displayed "The installation of this package failed" Anyone seen this or know how to fix?

    Thanks in advance

    Steve,

    I'm running 2010 on 8 & we both know it should go in w/out any problem. When you did the Upgrade to 8 did you tell it to "Keep Nothing"? I have had experience w/ something similar after going from Office 2013 back to 2010. I suggest the install is hitting conflicts from a 'lingering' prior install.

    Run the Microsoft Software Removal. http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downl...ils.aspx?id=16

    Also, if you have a windows.old folder & are finished w/ it, get rid of it.

    Cheers,
    Drew
