Microsoft office Configuration error 1706

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


During the installation of MS office i have faced an error 1706.

I tried to resolve this problem but not successful till yet.

I think it is related to Microsoft office Cache, either it is crashed or corrupt. I just delete it but after that i'm facing same problem.

Also, i check my network connection, it is OK as well as CD-Room Drive.

Configuration Error is shown below:

Exact Configuration Error is:

Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010

Configuration Progress

Error 1706. Setup cannot find the required files. Check your connection to the network, or CD-ROM drive. For other potential solutions to this problem, see


Setup failed. Rolling back changes…

Anyone help me how to fix that error.

Waiting for your best response.

Hi Shahzad,

One of the reasons is that, you may need to acquire Administrator login. Check if you have this permission  first.

Check if your CD ROM is properly inserted and that it is not damaged. Try to wipe the CD first and try to reinstall.

If these does not work,  From the Start menu, go to Run and type offcln.exe.

From there, delete all Office applications before finally reinstalling Office.

Good luck!
