When attempting to install MS Office 2010 on a Windows 7 Professional machine, using administrator account, and I get the following error:
"Error message when you try to install Office 2010: "Error 1920. Service 'Office Software Protection Platform' (osppsvc) failed to start."
I have tried the MS recommendation (both auto and manual fixes) and they do not seem to help
I also tried running setup.exe as Administator.
I also tried this:
Open Run (Press Windows key + R) > type services.msc and click on OK On the services MMC window right-click on Office Software Protection Platform and select Properties Select the LOG ON tab > change the ‘Log on as’ information from ‘This Account’ (Network Service) to ‘Local System Account’ Click on Apply and OK
I also tried this, but It cant find Network Service
From Administrative Tools > Computer Management, expand System Tools > Local Users and Groups > Groups. Double-click the Users group and click Add. Click Locations and select your computer node. Now: Type Network Service into the 'Enter the object names' OR Click Advanced, then Find Now and select it from the Search Results.
When I tried to add it, it says it already exists - but yet I dont see it At my wits end trying to get this installed
