Some Office updates need to be installed prior to the installation of the MS Office add-in. There are some issues with Microsoft Office where an add-in may not load if it was developed with and/or uses Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0.

To continue the installation of your product without the MS Office add-in

  1. On the Install Configuration page or the Add/Remove Features page, clear the MS Office add-in check box.
  2. Click Next.
