Microsoft has issued a fix for this problem below, but this did not resolve the problem for myself.
Go into Registry Editor (Start, Run, “regedit”). Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, Software, Microsoft, Office, 11.0, Delivery. There should be only 1 directory under Delivery, which is your DownloadCode (mine was 90000409-6000-11D3-8CFE-0150048383C9). Select that directory. On the right side of the screen, right-click on CDCache. Change the value to 0.
I was getting this error in relation with outlook 2003; I have yet been unable to find a resolution other than re-install at the moment I would appreciate anyone that has got a fix for this to email me.
I have recently found an online backup software called Carbonite. Carbonite is a useful tool that offers unlimited online space as a means of backing up your machine online. for $49.95 per year this is an attractive offer but unfortunately there are flaws in the software, you are unable to schedule backup times i.e. during the evening, you are able to make it use a low bandwidth option but I wanted the option to be able to do an evening backup so as to be able to use it in a business environment.
It does have good use of compression, I marked 90 GB of data for upload and it managed to compress this to 26 GB that is an amazing compression ratio.
Unfortunately my trial had to come to an abrupt end due to the endless problems installing other programs such as office 2007 and Adobe Master Collection, both of these problems are documented on this site.
It is a great piece of software for the price and with the offer of unlimited space this is unrivalled. but the major problems it causes lets it down massively, if you are going to be using this software don’t enter into this lightly if you are not an experienced user it could cause more harm than good and from something that is supposed to give peace of mind, that for me is a big irony.
This problem has been occurring when installing office 2007 on a fresh install of Vista 32bit, after looking around many forums the issue seems to lie with Carbonite. Disabling Carbonite and then restarting the install will fix this problem; due to this issue I have now removed Carbonite from my machine. Also after removing Carbonite from my machine I was then able to install Adobe Master Collection on the machine without any problems.
If anybody is getting similar issues but doesn’t have Carbonite installed please email me.
