Question about Microsoft Office Professional 2007 Full Version for PC

Installing Office 2007 Enterprise on new Systemax PC

After I place the DVD in the drive, the disk is read, the splash screen comes up, and before I get the chance to put in the product key, I get the following: "Setup cannot continue because a required file is either corrupted or not available, Run setup again from the original source disk or download location."

What I tried:
1. Verified DVD- did successful full installs with this same media both before and after, on other computers.
2. Turned off all startup and services in msconfig- rebooted- no change, same error.
3. "Safe Mode" booted and tried again. This time,I got to enter a product key nd it looked as if it was going to go, but several minutes in, got a non-specific error saying that setup failed.
4. Searched MS Knowledge Base- no help.
5, Called Systemax- no help.
6. Took DVD to inhouse ITS Department- they tested, it tested good, no problem.
7. Attempted to copy DVD to both C: drive on Systemax computer, as well as a new 2 gig pen drive. Copy failed in the same place each time, with this message: "Cannot copy Proof: Cannot read from the source file or disk." I noticed it was copying proof.xml from to
8. Placed DVD in another computer, as well as pen drive, and successfully copied full disk from DVD to pen drive.
9. Put pen drive in Systemax computer. Was able to do a full install from pen drive, with no issues.

In attempt to find problem, seached net for driver updates, found new flash file for drive (Optiarc AD-7190A DVD RW). Found two upgrades, installed most recent (January 2008). Unistalled Office 2007, and attempted to re-install with same DVD- same error. Stuck pen drive back in USB- reinstalled no problem.

I need to identify this issue, as this computer is heavily relied upon, and I don't need more problems. Any help is appreciated.

Once installed, was unable to re-boot the system.
The system kept cycling between logging on and logging off.
Prior to installation, my PC had no problems. All the diagnostics were performed.
The system had MS Office 2003 suite already installed and I had hoped for a seamless update!
Perhaps my naivite got in the way!

Hello workndog

Try this since you don't mention this: 1. Change out the dvd drive from other computer, 2. Reload newest drivers in an update. Do not leave same driver from pc

Hi there,

This often happens if you have more than one installation of Office on your computer, and they are slightly different versions. You will need to uninstall the previous version of Office if you can and then try the activation again. Do you by any chance have a non-professional version loaded on your computer right now?

If that isn't the case a lot of times if it doesn't work, you will need to call microsoft and activate it over the phone.

This link should give you some more information of what you are looking for to call the center to get the activation approved:

Sorry, but that's not the case. Most DVD drives will read CD's, but most CD drives will not read DVDs, so unless yours specifically says it's a DVD drive, It's not going to work for you. HINT: the cost of a DVD drive is far less than the cost of Office software.
