MS Project problem on installation

Asked By 1020 points N/A Posted on -

Hi experts,

When I was on my field work to address some client concern, I came across a user who want to use Microsoft Project, so I asked them for their installer and installed it. while installing I encountered this error, I pasted below the screenshot.

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

When I checked on the error, it involves for some privileges. Before doing it, I restarted the computer, so as to get a fresh start. when I checked on the rights, the user name that I used has all the rights. So I re-install again the application, but same error message appeared on the screen while installing, I am now run of ideas on the issue.

Please help me find a solution.

This error occurred during installation because of the Antivirus block the application or there is incompatibility process between Windows and Microsoft Office 2010. Windows must be in Service Pack 3 so that you can continue installing the Microsoft Office 2010.

Sometimes the CD installer is damaged. I hope these tips can help you. Just try to follow the first post.
