    Office Pro Plus 2007 install stalls out, no error ??


    baffled with what is going on here - I am trying to migrate MSO Pro Plus 2007 from an old tower to new windows 8 laptop. put the disc in, run setup... it seemed to be going smoothly until it got roughly halfway [according to the little feedback thingy on the screen] and then just never shows progress again. checking task manager, it is running, not showing "not responding", generating a few cpu cycles but zero disc activity - the optical drive is showing no activity - I can pop out the dvd and it shows no response. i'm reluctant to kill, but MSO doesn't take nearly this long to install.

    anyone seen this before? resolution? should I just copy everything over to the HDD and fire it off afresh?

    edit: I should say I am running mainly from the desktop, but used the windows 8 "what do you want to do" popup to run the installer if that matters.

    thx
