Hi,

You need to uninstall any pre-release version of the Microsoft Office 2007 system .

it seems that if you have a version of the 2007 Microsoft Office Add-in or Microsoft Save as PDF or XPS installed, this may be the culprit. In both cases, by performing an uninstall on this add-in via the Control Panel, and then installing Expression Web, everything works okay. You can even re-install the Office 2007 add-in when you're done.

Goodluck,

Alright download "Your Uninstaller!" and use that to uninstall the remainders of Office. Download HERE

Reboot into safe mode and delete the folders....defrag, reboot normally and see if you can reinstall it now. You may need to register it again, so hope you have the key.

Let me know if you are still having this problem and I will get you through it.

Hi,

To my knowledge this error would only occur if:
1. there was a prior version (Beta) of Office 2007 installed. Of course the solution would then be to uninstall the old version, clean the registry for any instances of the old version and do a clean fresh install;
2. a version of the 2007 Microsoft Office Add-in: Microsoft Save as PDF or XPS was installed. This could be corrected by removing this add-in through the Add/Remove Program(s) in the Control Panel.
3. any other program/application is causing conflicts.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    With indulgence of the others...

    It would seem that Microsoft is aware of some issues as you have described, you might find this informative.

Hello there.

If you have previous versions of MS Office 2007 they must be uninstalled prior to installing a different version. Please try this first and report back.

Hope this helps.

Error 25004.config.xml not specified; A valid config.xml file must be authored when deploying '(null)'. i am installing microsoft office enterprise 2007 and i enounter this problem..how will i


If the version of windows installed on your computer is not activated you would face issues to use any applications once the product is expired.

But if you have an issue with office programs with an error 25004 on an activated version of windows
Then the reason might be corrupted installation of office 2007 on the computer.
Uninstall office 2007 manually from the computer then
re-install it and check if it helps.

Try renaming the install directory. Normal install is located C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12. Rename office12 to office12bak (just in case you need to put it back again). This will normally allow you to reinstall office again.

Unable to install ms office 2007, upgrading from Office 2003


Hi,
please first uninstall all the existing versions of MS Office. Then try to clean temporary files, cache and registry using tools like cCleaner (freely availavle), then install MS Office.

if you want to install only MS Office 2007, no need to install MS office 2003 and upgrade. directly install MS Office 2007.

If you want to keep both, pleas install MS office 2003 first, then MS office 2007, please dont uograde it, rather select Keep both version.

Please make sure that you have admin permission before doing all this and your system is free from any virus.
Thanks
