Thanks for the reply. I tried running the Setup.exe file. Still received the same message. I used the troubleshooter and tried to install it in Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 & 3 mode Still received the same message. If there is another way to get into compatibility mode please tell me how?
I installed this software on my Desktop running Windows XP Pro with SP3 without any problems. I am supposed to be able to install iy on a laptop also. Do you think if I copy the files to on the CD to its own directory I might be able to install it that way. The CD just makes a lot of noise trying to install it but the drives works fine with MS Office Pro 2003.
Thank you for the tip. I tried copying the cd to the hard drive last night. After 2 hours I gave up. I tried copying individual directories on the cd to a directory I called MSOFFICE2007 I was able to copy one at a time but it took almost half an hour per directory.
Then the cd stopped responding. Any idea what can be causing this. I copied other software to a directory without any problems extremely fast. My laptop is a 4 GIG dual processor and it meets all the spec's according to the software.
