Installing Project-Setup has stopped working


Well-Known Member
I'm attempting to install Project 2010 and when I click setup, a box immediately appears saying "Setup did not complete successfully. We are sorry for the inconvenience." No reason was given but it showed the following.
Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: Office12Setup
Problem Signature 01: {10120000-0F00-0000-0000--0000000FF1CE}
Problem Signature 02: 12.0.4518.1014

Problem Signature 04: FileNotFound
Problem Signature 05: X
Problem Signature 06: X
Problem Signature 07: X
OS Version: 6.1.7601.

I ran Fixit but there's another message saying troubleshooting cannot continue because an error has occurred. It didn't say what the error was or why it occurred.

One reason could be that you have an older installation of Office, perhaps a failed / corrupt one. I would suggest you uninstall such, plus do a Registry cleaning with CCleaner, or equivalent.
