    I reinstalled my office 2007 enterprise on my vista home premium, now, when
    i try to open any program the install goes into the setup & configuration
    screen, it says "windows is configuring office 2007...", a setup bar goes by
    for about 4-5 minutes, then the program opens, very frustrating. I also get
    the error "stdole32.tlb" when opening excel.
    I am already looking for about a week for a solution, and already tried
    everything (deleting everything except register en reinstall, use setup clean
    up util, installing 2003, installing 2007 in safe mode, logging in as
    'administrator', install separatly, etc...) without succes:(
    Please (someone) let me know if there is a solution for this issue.

    Anyway, please report this BUG to microsoft, maybe then can write an article
    on it or release a patch, as I believe lot of people (will) experience this

    Thanks in advance

    It is NOT a Vista bug!
    Office installs perfectly in Vista
    Uninstall it completely, then reinstall it.
    And kindly STOP blaming Vista fror EVERYTHING!

    I'm looking for a solution... not some whining reply
    as you can READ I already tried the followingand I didn't say it's a Vista bug (which it probably is) but an office 2007
    look on the office forums, lots of people are experiencing exactly the same
    The only thing I want is solve the problem, can I ?

    It seems that office setup hasn't managed to complete an installation task
    from the first place and it is continually trying to finish the uncompleted
    task. To monitor this, have a look at your event viewer under the setup
    logs. There you will identify the exact cause.

    I suspect that you have a bad cd. Try installing from another cd

    Thanks, i tried burning it on a cd-rom and installing it from that (instead
    of mounting it with daemon tools) but the problem persists.
    I had a look at the setup log but I can't make a lot of it... anyway at the
    end it says:

    Successfully installed package: EnterpriseWW path:C:\MSOCache\All
    Showing completion dialog.
    Reboot requested if needed.
    No reboot is needed.
    Catalyst execution finished: 04/28/2007 21:52:35. Return code: 0.
    PERF: TickCount=1193189 Name=RunSetup Description=End function

    maybe I can email you the setup log

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    Turn off UAC, reboot. Try reinstalling Office 2007.

    Laurens, try also the following (just suggesting, not promising):
    1) Try to re-install with anti-virus disabled or uninstalled
    2) Also give a try at MS Office07 Diagnostics (XP's Detect&Repair
    replacement) found under help of any application. It helped me in some cases
    even if it didn't detect errors.

    Just curious,
    1) do you have enough disk space on the drive where your MSOcache exists
    (the same drive as office installation)
    2) Have you tried to install it from that cd on another computer
    3) What language is your office?
