Hello there,

I am trying to install Office 2007 Enterprise on Windows 7. Every time the installation process halts with error 1913 - Setup can not update C:\windows\win.ini.
I already verified and tried the following:
* I'm logged in as the system administrator
* my c:\windows\win.ini is not read-only or hidden
* the win.ini file has a size of 1 kB
* I already tried installation with a renamed win.ini, same results.

I had a trial version of Office 2007 installed on this computer when I bought it. Since I already possess the official Office 2007 enterprise cd's I now want to install this full version. I de-installed the trial version first.

I hope I provided sufficient details, if not, just let me know.
Please help!

Try running Revo Uninstaller then try again to install Office 2007. I am thinking Office 2007 is still installed.

As I have been searching for the solution to the same issue the most common fix I have found outside of MS KB articles has been to disable or even uninstall the AV software. Then run your setup for Office and reinstall or enable your AV software again.

Hope this helps.

Good luck.
