    Default unbale to install office 2010 from a disc Windows 8 RP

    Hello,

    I cant install office 2010 in my windows 8 release preview. When I put the disc in my drive, Windows ask me what it must do with it, I click to run the install, and then nothing happen. And my computer won't stop either after that.

    When I start the Task Manager I see the task in relation with the installation I want and I can't end it.

    Do I have to reinstall my computer once again? Thanks.

    It's possible your installation is corrupt. Perhaps the Windows Installer is corrupt. Have you tried to install any other apps from DVD? How about from downloaded executable files? Did you download the Office 2010 as an ISO file and burn it to DVD or is this a DVD directly from MS? If not from MS how trusted is the supplier of the DVD?

    If Office 2010 is you first installation attempt, I would try something else as well.

    If nothing will install, then start your Win 8 RP installation over using this method.

    Yes. I installed from DVD, but have never tried to install apps from DVD. I downloaded the ISO file again and am burning DVD now. Hope this would work. Thank you.

    Hi BillBales,

    Welcome to this Windows 8 Forums.

    If you try to install office 2010 from a disc, plz create a flat and try installing it from the copied location. To do that, create a folder on your desktop and then copy over the contents of the Office 2010 installation disk to that folder.

    Hope this helps.
