Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I was trying to install a Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 on my PC. The program stops responding, and then the error message pops up on the computer screen in the following manner:

‘error 1321 setup cannot modify the file. Verify that the file exists in your system and also, that you must be havingthe permissions to update it.’

I cannot even cancel the installation of the Office Suite.

Can someone tell me how to fix this issue?
