Office 2010 Beta Set-Up Error 1706

  fpc 09:09 10 Jan 2010

I have repeatedly tried to load the Beta version from the disc but am prevented from completing the installation by Error 1706, which says Set-Up cannot find the required files.

As I loading this from a disc I find this somewhat surprising.

I have an XP pc with service pack 3.

Please note I have tried to load the Microsoft site version but have a similar problem with a missing file, even though the folder is present.
Not eht file size for the 32 Bit version was 688 Mb.

Any solutions??

This error seems to be common when installing onto a machine that aleady has Office 2007 installed.

Is this the case with you?

Office 2007 is/was installed.
I changed from "Customise" and selected the "Upgrade" option, to remove Office 2007.
Office 2010 was then installed successfully.
