Default Setup Error "this language is not supported installing office 2007"

Good day



I tried to search the forum, but i am not getting a conclusive solution to the above error that i am recently experiencing.

I am able to install Office 2003/2010 on the Windows xp SP3 pc but when i try to install office 2007.

I get the above mentioned error and without success i am failing to install office 2007. I have read some topics regarding this issue on the internet and i have added the missing language by using the regional and language settings, but i am still unable to install office 2007.

Please advice on how to fix this issue.

If you're going to install multiple versions of Office, you should always install in order of oldest to newest. Office 2007 should not be installed on top of Office 2010.

It's also possible your Office 2007 package requires a different language than what your computer is configured for, but you haven't given any details about either aspect.

Thanks for the reply, much appreciated.

Scenario 1
Windows XP SP3 which currently has office 2003 installed, i try to upgrade office to 2007 and i get this error and i am unable to install.


Scenario 2
Windows XP SP3 which has just been re-installed with copy of Wndows XP and when trying to install office 2007 i get this error.

please be aware as well that this is the first time i am experiencing such an error.

Scenario 3
Windows 7 32bit SP1, tried to install office 2007 and i get the same error and i am unable to install office.

what are the possibilities that the problem could be my installation package, i am just lost for words as to what could be causing this issue.

As I said in my previous reply:

You still haven't said anything about that. Assuming that's the problem, though, for a workaround, see: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/983010
