Having rebuilt my computer after my raid 0 died on the old one I am now trying to install MS Office Accounting Express 2007. It extracts to a temp file but goes no further. I am obviously missing some Microsoft driver/engine, but where do I start looking. Any ideas?

Cheers

If its XP, look in event viewer. Look for errors under Application or system

This is what you need I think (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=5A58B56F-60B6-4412-95B9-54D056D6F9F4&displaylang=en)

tried the installer but no joy. For some reason the event viewer had to be turned on manually in Services, so not much to look at there.

Thanks for your assistance thus far, any other ideas?
