    Cant install microsoft office 2013 professional plus!


    Having issues with my installation. I've tried man methods but an Error always occurs. It says something about my invalidity to install due to previous trial versions of microsoft office is already installed. The thing is, i have no office in my rig yet. I've tried installing trial versions then uninstalled it, but still the same problem occurs.

    PLEASE I NEED SOLUTIONS!

    Atleast knowing that im not the only one experiencing this would HELP A LOT!

    To remove prior versions of Office, do not use Uninstall in the control panel. You must use the removal tool to uninstall all traces. Depending on the version you would use this:

    How to uninstall Office 2003, Office 2007 or Office 2010 suites if you cannot uninstall it from Control Panel?

    Or

    How to uninstall Office 2013 or Office 365

    Yes, i have tried using Your Uninstaller 7 to remove the previous versions. Still the same results.

    Unfortunatley Office has a habit of cluttering the registry with unused keys... see here for the commands to retrieve those and uninstall them - you just require the last 5 characters to uninstall them.

    Before doing this, back up the registry.

    Windows key + R, type REGEDIT in the Open box. Click OK.Locate following Registry path:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER | Software | Microsoft
    Delete the “Office” sub key if present. Click Yes button to confirm. Close Registry Editor

    Select Run.. paste the path eg for 32bit... Click image for larger version
    (obviously change to Programs for 64 bit..) then hit OK

    When in the folder - hold shift and right click - select open command window here from the context menu.

    If not done already, download and run ccleaner.
    Click the cleaner, analyze then run cleaner.
    When done click Registry then Scan for issues. Does anything show up in the analysis.
