Office 2003 installation error 1402


  • During the installation of Office 2003, i'm getting this error:
    "Error 1402. Setup cannot open the registery key UNKNOWN32\CLSID{000209FF-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}\LocalServer32. Verify that you have sufficient permission to access the registry or contact your information technology department for assistance."

    Can anyone help me out with this error message? Thanks!

  • The MSDN forums target developer questions (programming). End-user level questions belong on Answers ( and technical questions in the TechNet forums.

    As I can't move discussions to Answers and your question is IT-related (setup configuration) I'm moving it to the TechNet forum for Word IT pros.

    But you will need to follow up with more information about which version of Windows you're trying to install this on and what type of user account (guest, admin, etc.) you're using.
