I try to install Microsoft Office Ent. 2007 in Windows 7(64) and I keep getting this pop up "Setup can not find Outlook.en-us\OutlkLR.cab. Browse to a valid installation source, and then click OK". I tried to browse and click OK but no luck. Anyone encounter this problem before.

What is the install source? Hard drive? or CD/DVD?

Is this during the installation, or after the installation is finished and you try to run something like Word?

If it's the latter, it's because the program you're running is trying to use a different component of Office that you didn't install. Office has this annoying "feature" wherein it considers components as "Installed", "Not Installed", or "Install on First Use" - the latter prompts for the install disk the first time you try to use that particular item.

I usually do a custom setup and make sure none of the options are set to "Install on first use" to avoid this sort of thing. I prefer my programs "installed" or "not installed", not halfway in between.

Sounds like a CD drive read error - assuming the disc is a genuine MS one

It's during installation.

If your disc is legitimate, the errors might be caused by a scratch or imperfection in the disc. You can try cleaning the disc, but if that doesn't work, you will likely need to find a new cd. It is a possibility (though very remote) that your cd/dvd drive is failing, but a scratch is much more likely.

Sounds like a bad disk. You could try copying the contents of the disk to your hard drive, then run setup from there, and the pursue a replacement disk afterward.

I don't think so, 'cause after I tried several times in Ultimate(64) I installed it with no problem in Home Premium(64). I don't think it's the CD/DVD neither 'cause I just used them (2) to install the OS and a bunch of programs.

This problem is on the Ultimate(64). No problem installing in Home Premium(64).

Thanks.

Then copy the contents of the disk to the machine running Ultimate and run the install. Since we now know it's not a bad disk, see if the install fails when running from the hard drive.
