Just get another install disk. Borrow one from a friend.

Then all you will need is your serial number.

Reinstall and try that.

Error 1706 is usually displayed at run time when a program is installed using Install Shield. You can fix it or install the files by accessing the bios setup.. On the boot section choose the drive where the file to be installed is located to be the first one to boot. If it is on the CD drive choose Cd drive then save and exit setup.

WordPerfect 12 is almost certainly incompatible with Windows 7 -- and is the reason you are getting the error message. The current version of WordPerfect is X4 -- at least 3 upgrade versions from version 12.

The drivers in version 12 were for Windows 98 / 2000. It would have worked OK with XP and maybe even Vista - but Win-7 is a new OS altogether. Sorry, but it sounds like you may need to do an upgrade.

I have a problem with the uninstalling of Microsoft Office XP

Solution from Microsoft....
This problem is due to the choice of the option 'Install on first use' or due to an update of Microsoft Office (for Windows Update for example).

To remedy this, simply insert the disk for Microsoft Office version installed, or specify the location of files on the hard drive.

An alternative is to click Start, Control Panel, Add / Remove Programs.
Select Microsoft Office XP Professional with frontpage and click on Modify/ Continue, Select add/remove components, and then next.
Then the components to be installed appear, simply click update.

Microsoft says that Error 1706 is a Microsoft Office Error code which
indicates that required files can not be found by Setup. Since you
are trying to install new programs I feel that this is probably the
correct interpretation of your error code.

What I would advise you to do is to open the control panel and go to "Add or remove programs" for windows xp and "Programs and Features" in Windows Vista. Locate Microsoft Word Perfect and click on it. Click on "change" The next option, put a dot on the "Repair installation errors in this program...." If it asks you for the disk again. Change the path of installation file to c:\windows\system32 Hope this helps!
