Ways to solve installation failure of Microsoft® Office® 2010
How do you install Microsoft Office 2010? What can cause an installation failure of Microsoft Office 2010?
Some users face some installation issues with software, where the Microsoft Office 2010 installation process halts or stops unexpectedly before completion and then remains stuck there permanently. If you are one of those users, then you can fix this by starting Task Manager and terminating the process. After the failed installation, you are not able to restart the installation process again and this is the actual problem. This is beacause the Installation Wizard does not start again as the previous setup was not complete. In 'Add or Remove Programs' list there is no entry of a failed installation, which makes you feel helpless. This cannot be rolled back to older versions of Microsoft Office 2010 due to a midway termination of the setup.
