SOFTWARE: Office 2007 Upgrade stumbles


So, I ‘finally’ {g} upgraded to Office 2007. Nothing particularly interesting about that, except to say that I too am indebted to Scott Hanselman (along with many thousands around the globe…)

I experienced the dreaded ‘…cannot upgrade from a prerelease version of 2007 Microsoft Office system…’ message.

But Scott guided me through it all with his great post here. And yes, MyUnistaller is a fantastic utility.

(As an aside I’ve never installed any Microsoft Expression betas, so that isn’t the culprit.)

And, unlike Craig I didn’t need to reboot at the end of the Office install. But after running Outlook it did prompt me to install the latest Microsoft Desktop Search, and that did require a reboot.
