Several times now I have tried to install Office 2007 service pack 1. Each time I receive an error msg stating that one of the registry keys needed to install the download is missing. It continues to say that this was probably caused by using one of the registry optimizer/cleaner programs. This is true! I did use RegCure a while back and it caused quite a few problems. So, I deleted it along with the backup that it creates. One of my brighter moments!!!
I am thinking about reinstalling Office 2007 and I have already exported the Personal Folders .pst file to a memory stick. reinstalling shoud create the needed registry key. If I were to do this and then import the .pst file, what are the chances that I would get back all of my contacts, calendar and email data?
My only other option would be to use regedit and manually input the key (which MS gives a step by step - almost). However, I am deathly afraid of making manual changes to the registry. I would almost rather loose my .pst data - almost!
Does anyone have a suggestion or comment?
