Today with a co-worker we were working on sequencing Project 2010 and at some point during the installation we have got the following error message:

Setup 

Error 1920. Service 'Office Software Protection Platform'(osppsvc) failed to 
start. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services.

  • This error appears when the Network Service doesn't have permissions on C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft SharedOfficeSoftwareProtectionPlatform. To fix this, you need to give full control to it.
  • For manual fixing: (Windows XP and Windows Server 2003)
  • Click the Start button and then Run. Type cacls “C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft SharedOfficeSoftwareProtectionPlatform” /t /e /p “Network Service”:F and then click the Enter key then install Office 2010.
  • For Vista, just change the value to this: icacls “C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft SharedOfficeSoftwareProtectionPlatform” /grant “Network Service:F” /t and then click the Enter key.
  • For Windows 7, just change the value to this: icacls “C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft SharedOfficeSoftwareProtectionPlatform” /grant “Network Service:F” /t and then click the Enter key.
