  • Hi,

    Bootstrapper is an application (executable) designed to initialize the installation and setup of a program like Microsoft Office 2013. The application may experience trouble when it finds that a beta edition of Office 2013 exists, some hardware is not supported, that the minimum system requirements are not met, registry error(s) are there in Windows Registry, or that an antivirus or firewall program is under the impression that the installation file is a malicious executable file. For the purpose of installing Microsoft Office 2013 without hitches and glitches, try the following methods:

    Step 1: Locate & Remove Any Previous Office Edition
    Step 2: Disable Antivirus/Firewall Temporarily
    Step 3: Install Office in Clean Boot Mode
    Step 4: Install the Latest Software Updates
    Step 5: Modify Windows Registry

  • I've got the same problem. Can't install office 2013 because of a bootstrap problem. Been at it for hours. Totally frustrated. Don't know what to try next. The advice above says to modify windows registry ! What an unhelpful answer ! Wouldn't have a clue where to begin.
