    Hello and welcome @jimdot:

    A bit more information would help us to better help you.

    Questions, for starters:
    1. Are you logged into Windows from an Admin account, or standard/limited account?
    2. Are you installing Office 2007 from a download or from physical media?
    3. At what point does the process fail?
    4. What is the exact error message or code, e.g. from the Windows event viewer (and/or: a screen shot would be very helpful)?


    Thanks,

    MM

    Ans. 1 Logged in as my Admin account.
    Ans. 2 Installing from an extracted ISO file on my HDD
    Ans. 3. Very shortly after I execute the Startup.Exe
    Ans. 4. No error code displays. Just says "Installation encountered an error" Only option is to close the window.

    Running Win 10 Pro( ver. 1607 Anniversary Edition)

    I have had to do a complete Fresh re-installation from scratch of the above Win 10 version for various reasons & have installed Office Pro 2007 without any problems, multiple time,,, until now!!! I have also tried to install it by booting into Safe Mode & still gotten the same error.

    Makes no sense to me??? Hope I've answered all your question accurately.

    Thanks, Jim

    I'm no expert, but it sure sounds as if there is something amiss with some or all of these:
    • Your Win10 installation
    • Your hardware
    • Perhaps the MS Office 2007 iso that you have used "multiple times"


    Assuming your hardware is OK....
    ...I would probably start with sfc /scannow and DISM.

    Then I would start fresh with MS Office 2007, rather than using the old iso.
    Here is a MS tutorial:

    Download Earlier Versions of Office


    Please let us know if this resolves your issue.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for the MM. I was able to solve the issue by restoring an image copy backup to 1 of those times when office did install correctly.
