as usual, i popped in the disc for my MS office 2007 to install things after a reformat. however, halfway during installation, this message popped up.

since then it's been the same message whenever i try to reinstall it. i borrowed MS office 2003 from my friend too, but the same message actually popped up. how do i circumvent this? initially i thought it was the comodo defense blocking it from changing protected files, but even after disabling it, it didn't work.

Hi,

Many people have had the same issues as yourself. try the following;

1. From Windows install disk, open (Double click) the FP40EXT.CAB file.

2. Find fp4ault.dll in the list

3. Double click and select extract to c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\web server extensions\40\bin

4. Restart the 2007 office install

Make sure to uninstall all previous installations (or leftover bits from attempted installations) of Office from both 2003 & 2007.

wow, didn't realise i'm not alone. why would such a problem occur? and how did you find the solution? doesn't seem easy to solve without any initial clues though.

it's weird though. they just executed the installation without any prompts, and installed everything without prompts.

Normally a good look with Google will turn up result where other people have had issues or a bit more in depth searching with error codes and symptoms will usually turn stuff up.

Have you got it working now?

yeah, it would be easy to find a solution with given error codes.. but this one looks very general, so i didn't get it on Google.

yup it's working, thanks for helping :thumbsup:
