Post date: Nov 21, 2014 1:21:30 PM

Solved my problem, I got the error code, it was 1603. Here is the step i did to s0o9uceffully install it:

1°- Install the Windows Installer 4.5 for Windows XP 32-bits.

2°- Apply the KB972397 Hotfix. Sorry, you will need to request that fix from Microsoft.

3°- Cleaned All Office folder inside "Program Files" (C:\Program Files\Office)

4°- Opened the Regedit (Start>Run>Regedit>), navigated into the [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\] and deleted the Office Entry there.

5°- Run those commands in Command Prompt (Start>Run>CMD):

net stop winmgmt

net start winmgmt

rundll32 wbemupgd, UpgradeRepository

cd /d %windir%\system32\wbem

for %i in (*.dll) do RegSvr32 -s %i

for %i in (*.exe) do %i /RegServer

6°- Restarted the Computer.

7°- Disable AV-Application

8°- Run the "SETUP.EXE" inside my Office 2010 Disc, selected "Custom" in instalation menu, then Removed EVERYTHING but Word and Excel. Otherwise i allways got that error.

9°- When the Instalation Finish, Open the SETUP.EXE agan, select "Custom" in Instalation Menu, Then Install the Other app like Power point, Acess, Office Tools, Etc.

Then it should be running. As far i've seen, A Lot of people is suffering of this issue. I guess it should be stickfied.
