Hi,

I got the following error message when I was trying to install Microsoft Office. How can I install this software properly?

I have tried to reinstall this application to fix the problem, but I extremely need your assistance to resolve the error.

I am using Windows 7. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Hello Wallace. Microsoft Windows has a website where you can fix your problem. In this website, you are given the choice to let Microsoft fix the problem for you automatically, or you can choose to fix the problem yourself, manually.

If you want to do it manually, then I shall summarize it for you below. Otherwise, follow this link for an autofix solution to your problem.

1) Click "Start"

2) Click "Accessories" folder

3) Right-click on "command prompt", choose "Run as Administrator" from the subsequent drop down menu.

4) Type the following: icacls "C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft SharedOfficeSoftwareProtectionPlatform" / grant "Network Service:F" /t

According to the website, this should solve your problem. If it does not work, try the automatic version.

Have a good day!
