After resetting my laptop to its original state (effecitvely doing a fresh OS installation) it won't allow me to load my copy of Windows Office Suite 2003. I've installed it before on this computer without a problem by simply entering the product key. But this time the program loads about 75% of the way before the following message appears:
'Error 1406 Setup cannot write the value to the registry key \Excel.CSV\shell\Open\command. Verify you have sufficient permissions to access the registry or contact M/S Product Support Services for assistance.'
I've scoured the internet and found a few relevant posts which attempt to instruct on how to deal with this but, despite my best efforts, I haven't' been successful. I've also used the M/S 'Fix It' Removal Tool following my failed attempts but this hasn't helped.
One instruction I came across explained 'You need to go to the innermost key and seize ownership, then apply full access permissions to the Everyone group. Now work your way out until you have dealt with the whole key.' But I'm afraid I have no idea how to set about doing any of this.
Has anyone had a similar problem and knows how to deal with the above error message? And if so, could they explain in layman's terms how to make the necessary change(s) that will allow my Office Suite to load successfully?
