While running Office 2007 Ultimate Setup on Windows 7 box, I get this error message - "Setup cannot find PowerPoint.en-us\".

This file is very much present in the setup folder. It gives me an option to choose the correct path of this file, but when I browse and navigate to the folder containing this file, it doesn't show me the CAB file for selection.

I tried installing both from DVD and also running setup from hard disk location.

The same setup media was used earlier for installation on Vista without any issues!

Check the media for any scratches or problems. Next, try to open the CAB file yourself and see if it is readable.

FYI, for comparison - on my Ultimate disk, the file has a creation date/time of 30/10/2006 02:33 and the size is 13,422,356 and has a CRC of 0xA98A52BE

Yes, I was able to open & extract the CAB file using 7-Zip. My CAB file size is also 12.7 MB (13,422,356 bytes). The file creation time shows 30-Nov-2006 4:03PM. I am not sure how to check the CRC. The media is a ISO File on my hard disk, that I burnt it to DVD. Even I tried extracting the ISO file and ran the setup. But still encountering the same problem! – kamleshrao Nov 17 '09 at 18:36

This is often caused by a trial version of Office 2007 being pre-installed on your machine. Check control panel, Programs, Uninstall a program and then uninstall everything with Office in it's name. After this you should be able to install both from the DVD and the HDD.

I will try this and let you know in a day. Thanks. – kamleshrao Nov 17 '09 at 18:43

What worked for me: I installed MS Office 13 (365) and uninstalled it after and installed MS Office 2010 again (without rebooting) and it worked as "charm"... (Before I tried to uninstall and delete everything which has something common with MSO 2010). PS: Problem occured when I uninstalled MSO 2007 and tried to install MSO 2010.

So if nothing helped you just try to install and uninstall MSO 13 (365) again and after install MSO 2010.
