The only way that worked, and stayed after the next updates, was to backup
the user's windows profile, delete the active one, and copy back the needed
files.
Something in the registry, but deleting HKLU\software\microsoft\office did
not fix it.

Hello Guys,

Many of you have seen my posts about this Microsoft error message tha
was a major problem because there wasn't anything out there to fix th
problem.

So, here is the fix and what you need to do. Just so everyone know
what the exact error message is, if you get this when opening Word
Excel, or any Office product "MS Office <"Enter Office Product (Word
Excel, etc)"> has not been installed for the current user, then go t
this link and follow the directions step by step.

Thanks gaddow 21, that did it for me. I hope it stays fixed now. Just
incase the link goes away, here is the text for the anypcinfo.com
article:

1) Create a Windows Account with full control admin rights, and then
go ahead and log into that new account.

2) When under the newly created account, open every Office product you
have, then close one at a time (Excel, Word, PP, etc...)

3) After opening every Office App, go into the registry editor (Start
| Run, then type in Regedit)

4) Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER | Software | Microsoft | Office, and
highlight Office

5) Then right click on Office, and go to Export, save the .reg file to
somewhere you will be able to find it (Root of C:\ for me)

6) Log off your temp Windows account, and log back in under your
normal Windows account that was giving you the error.

7) Open regedit again, and then go to File | Import and pick the file
that was exported.

8) After it says that it was successfully imported, go ahead and try
the app that was giving you problems.

Now it should work, just like it did for me. Also, remember you delete
the temp account that you created!!

This fix didn't work for me. Even the Admin account wouldn't gave the same
"not installed error". It worked fine, then I rebooted the PC and when I
opened any of the MSOffice programs it started giving this error out of the
blue.

This is a fresh install of both Vista Ultimate and MSOffice 2007.

I don't know what the original issue is but that's probably not going to
resolve an Office problem.

I found a solution that solved the problem (might be same to your case as well)

One of my End User account (in Domain environment), unable to open any Microsoft Office application (version 2003, either without Service Pack or with Service Pack 3 installed)

The problem happened without any symtoms, but it was working fine last week.
I try all these stuff (repair Office, uninstall and new install again, delete Domain User profile in "User Account" in Control Panel, but nothing work)

I finally get it done by the step below:

1) Log off the current account, and log in as "Administrator"
2) Right click "My Computer" and select "Properties"
2) Click the "Advanced" tab on the top, and click "Settings" that under "User Profiles"
4) Select the Profiles that was having problem, then click "Delete" and "Yes" to proceed, and click "OK" to exit the rest of windows.
5) Restart the Windows to get the changes taking effect.
6) Done.


Hope my sharing will help your problem :)
