error 1406 installing outlook 2007

  seg2711 10:54 29 Sep 2008

im running vista on my pc and had problems with my old outlook 2003. it wouldn't allow me to re-install it from original disk, so i purchased outlook 2007. having deleted 2003 from pc i attempted to install 2007 (as it wouldn't install over outlook 2003). and got error message "1406 setup cannot write the value to the registry key. verify that you have sufficient permission to access the registry".
i only have 1 user account and thats me, set up as administrator.
i dont believe its the disk cause its installed on another pc running XP
any ideas how to get around this?

Either Right Click on the Setup Icon and select "Run as Administrator" or turn UAC off in User Accounts.

Have you tried Right clicking and Run as Administrator?

Try running a registry cleaner such as Ccleaner

Yes put your pointer on the Setup Icon then right click and see if there is an option to Run as administrator in the context menu.

Did you ever solve your problem? I have got the same problem with reinstalling Office 2007.
I get the following error message:
Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 encountered an error during setup.
Error 1406.Setup cannot write the value to the registry key \CLSID\{F0291081-E87C-4E07-97DA-A0A03761E586}.
Verify that you have sufficient permissions to access the registry or contact Microsoft Product Support Services
