Problem installing MS Office Profesional Plus 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • During the installation of MS Office Professional Plus 2010 on a Microsoft XP SP3 system i get the following error: "Setup cannot find ProPlus.WW\ProPsWW2.cab. Browse to a valid installation source, and then click OK." When I choose the ProPlus.ww file locations it says: "Invalid Locatio". The instalation then stops and is cancelled. I am installing from a DVD created by a download from Volume Licensing site.

    What can i do to fix this problem?

  • Hi Jose,

    Have you launched the installer from the autorun screen or did you just navigate the DVD and click setup?

    I have seen this behaviour with Office 2010, it must first use the autorun screen to make necessary permissions with UAC before allowing the installer to continue un-hindered.

  • Re-download the ISO and try again.  There are often issues when downloading large ISO files and they can become corrupted; has happened to me numerous times.
