Re: Unable to install MS Office 2007


Recommended Posts

I currently have Microsoft Office XP Pro 2003 installed on my WinXP Pro, yet when I have tried to install Office 2007 Beta I get the following error: Error 1919. Error configuring ODBC data source: Excel Files, ODBC error6: Component not found in the registry. Verify that the file Excel Files exist and that you can access it. Abort Retry Ignore

I don't see what the OBDC has to do with the installation of Office 2007 but it is definately causing some problems and I can't figure it out so maybe someone there might have some suggestions..

This is most probably a problem with the Windows Installer. I have spent a considerable amount of time on this issue. If you log your installation, at the point of the error, the log file shows that it cannot gain access to a certain registry entry and it returns an error. This error in turn returns the 1919 or 1918 error.

Article Q299611 on microsoft.com suggests that it's due to some corrupted ODBC DLL files. It suggests installing MDAC and then retrying the setup with some system configs. See the article for more details.

Article Q299066 on microsoft.com shows this error on XP machines but it's due to an incompatibility with Office. It's worth taking a look at though since you have this problem on XP.

Articles Q292448, Q295000 show a few more causes of this problem.

I suggest you install MDAC26 and Jet4.0 on this machine and then run your setup. This will install the latest ODBC and Jet rivers and just MIGHT get your setup running. Let me know if you have any further progress. Thanks.

I also I have the same problem with the administrative installation unattended and and not able to resolve. :realmad:

Suggest Install Old MDAC 2.8 restart , post Jet 4 SP8 restart, post Office 2000/2/3
