Setup error during installation of MS Outlook 2007

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

We're currently running Windows Mail, but now we want to install Outlook 2007.  We don’t have an older copy of Outlook.

Upon installation, I received the following error:

Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 encountered an error during setup.

There was no error code.  Also, the installer is from a freshly bought copy of Office 2007 and subsequently Outlook 2007.  Previously, I read about threads that suggested an older copy of Outlook, but I don't have one.  My operating system is Vista.

I have no idea about this. Suggestions will be accepted cordially.  Thanks a lot.

For this problem go to Add or Remove Programs feature in Control Panel to uninstall the earlier version of Office (Please ensure that you have a full copy of Microsoft office program). To do this, follow these steps:

  • Go to Start, Press Run, Write appwiz.cpl, and then Press OK.
  • From the list of currently installed programs, click the Office program that you want to remove, and then Press Remove.
  • In the Add or Remove Programs dialog box, Press Yes.
  • Once the earlier release of office has been uninstalled, you can go ahead and install the 2007 office software or the 2010 one making sure you have selected the MS outlook application.
