when I try to remove my office 2007, after i click remove, got message in pop out "setup cannot continue because a required file is either corrupted or not available,run setup again from the original source disk or download location."
I have lose my original office 2007 cd already , how to settled this problem?
I am disappointed to see that there hasn't even been a reply to this... I am having the same problem but with the install... I get the exact error message when I try to install my copy which came with my Partner program packs. This laptop I am using came with that pre-installed version which I have removed, but still no luck.
First day on the forums and I am tyring to help as many people as possible.
Ok, this issue is most likely due to the Excel.msp error. I know it is a common problem when trying to uninstall Office 2007. The only way to fix this that I have seen is to go into your registry and find where it calls for the Excel.msp file and remove that key.
As always make sure to back up the key first.
did you try this link?
There is a tool to download from Microsoft (a souped up version of the older Windows Installer Clean Up Setup. It may help.
My issue was a bit more complex because the machine was loaded as a private network then added to a domain so the permissions sets are abnormal. Taking permission did not do the trick so I reverted to the older Windows Installer Cleanup Tool (2003). I was able to remove the registry entries then load the installation disks for access to the msi and this allowed proper uninstall. Permission must be obtained not just in the file system but in the registry hives as well. Be prepared to reinstall your system if you fail.
I'm not sure what to tell you if you don't have a copy of the disk. Borrow one from somebody?
