    And WHY would you bother? It is supposed to be your NAS box, not a workstation!

    Could you please explain why do you bother to use Office in WHS?

    I really would like to know the reason for it (because it makes no sense to me)

    How the hell is having Office installed on a headless server ever going to be 'useful' :confused:

    Hi, I agree with the others in regard to installing Office on a server OS, but what I used to do when having Office installation issue was delete the Office keys in the registry before-hand, worked every time in my case. Reboot after deleting the keys and try the installation again. Worked with XP, can't remember if tested with other OS's.

    Tested:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office

    Untested:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office
