Yesterday I downloaded the Office 2010 trail and tried to install. Previously I have used the Beta1 also in its early days. After re-installing the Window I stick to the Office 2007 because I was facing some issues in the beta so I prefer to wait for the stable version.
The direct installation attempt was not successful because even after uninstalling the Office 2007 there were still some components (like office connector for WLM 2011) that were required to be removed. To avoid the delay in extraction each time then getting the error of still some components remaining for uninstall, I extracted the exe file (ProfessionalPlus.exe) with WinZip. After fully remove the required components, I executed the installer from the extracted files and I got a new error:
It was really strange for me because I clearly remember selecting the language as English. I cross checked the language of my system but I could not find the gap.
After googling the issue I came to know that the cause of this error is the extraction method. Why it is so, it does not make any logic.
The result for the issue is fully explained HERE.
