Default Proofing.en-us

O.K., this is a really big problem, there are posts going back to March, with
no replies:

Installing Office 2007, very shortly after the start, this message pops up,
cannot find Proofing.en-us\Proof-es\Proof.cab, and also
Proofing.en-us\Proof.msi.

This is all over the web in many forums, and, as I said, unanswered posts
here.

The install will not drill into the Proof folder. I tried copying the files
to the C drive, the install just does not see them anywhere.

This is, excuse me, a mess. There are people who bought Office 2007 in the
box and now can not install it.

If anyone knows a cure for this, please reply.

Thanks,

RSM

Chandu-

Hi, yes, I got my problem solved, by the brute force method. I am not privy
to reveal what happened, unless your conditions are very close to mine. So, I
have some questions:

Was Office 2007 ever installed previously on this computer?

Did you obtain Office 2007 with your computer or did you purchase it, like,
in a box, or maybe you got the trial version from MSFT?

What version, if any, of Office is now installed on your computer.

What have you tried to get Office 2007 to install?

Let me know these things and I will see if I am able to help.

RSM

I found that pointing the installer to the temporary directory where the
setup files are copied to worked for me. More details he 'Solution:

Default Proofing.en-us

I had to restore Vista on a Gateway PC.
Afterwards I was re-installing Microsoft Office Plus 2007 and encountered the same problem of "Proofing.en-us" not found. I would search for it and could locate on the installation CD. When I would cut/paste the folder path and submit I would receive "Invalid Path".

Fix:
I checked the CD (It had a slight gash on the very edge).
I cleaned the CD.
Inserted it in a second CD drive on the same machine and start the install again.
Worked fine that time.

I plan on making a copy of the CD if possible.
I do not know if Microsoft will replace the CD (but I am going to ask).
Good Luck!

Default Proofing.en-us etc

I know this is in reply to an old post, but because I have only just come across this same issue and resolved it, I hope my "solution" may benefit others. I wasted the best part of three hours trying to reinstal Office 2007 following a virus attack. On each occasion I kept getting messages telling me that Proofing-en.us or Wordmui.msi files could not be found.

I then recalled a "fix" when faced with a similar "file could not be found" problem on another program installation a few years back. In three easy stages this involves:
1) Create a Temp Office folder on your hard drive
2) Copy the entire contents of the Office 2007 CD into it.
3) Run Set-up directly from your Temp Office folder on the hard drive.

My PC sailed through this process in less than half the time of a CD-based installation, successfully overcoming any of the *.msi issues. Hope this helps other sufferers.
