Vista Premium refuses to install Office SBE 2003

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by The Ice Man Cometh, Jul 2, 2007.

  1. I have a new Dell E520 with Vista Home Premium and 119Gb spare space. I also
    have a Dell Office SBE2003 that I can't install. I also have MS works8.5
    installed. My Vista account is an administrator account. I always get the
    same error maessage. So i copied the CD to the HDD and changed the
    properties of the setup to alway run as admin and I alos tried to run in
    compatibility mode. The error message is as follows in one of the box
    thingies with a yellow triangle and exclamation mark;

    Error 1404. Setup cannot delete the registry key \software\classes\.tif.
    Verify that you have sufficent permissions to access the registry or contact
    your computer manufacturers produce support for assistance. I then have a
    choice of Cancel retry or ignore.

    If I ignore then I get the same for .csv then .pps, then .scd, then .sch
    then install carries on until nearly the end when I get a new error message
    Error 1310. Error writing to file: C:\Program Files\Mozilla
    Firefox\plugins\NPOFFICE.DLL. Verify you have access to that directory.
    Click Ignore and then I get a new error message
    Error1406. Setup cannot delete the registry key \software\classes\.csv rify
    that you have sufficent permissions to access the registry or contact your
    computer manufacturers produce support for assistance. I then have a choice
    of Cancel retry or ignore. and another trillion messages for various
    extensions

    I used the online chat to speak to Dell and was told that Office 2003 is not
    supported on Vista and will not work. So wharer do I go from here, hoping
    someone here can help me. I remove office 07 from my company laptop with
    vista business on it and it installed fine on there. I have removed it now
    and put 07 back on.

    Any help would bre gratly appreciated guys

    Microsoft Office 2003 works perfectly with Vista.

    Dell is giving you the wrong info.
