Office 2007 Install

I have just upgraded to CrossOver Mac Pro. I have tried installing Office 2007 multiple times. I am installing from a directory. I do not have access to the original CD as this is an install from my university's software folder (site license). I have also burned the directory to CD but that did not help either.

I load up the install setup.exe and it loads a window that is labeled "Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007"

I click the Install button and the window changes to "Installation Progress". Before it gets any further, a "Browse for Folder" window comes up and says "Setup cannot find Office.en-us\branding.xml. Browse to a valid installation source, and then click OK." The files that come up are as not being able to be found are


Please help me get this sorted out.

I have simillar problem. Installing Office 2007 Pro on Mac. It keeps asking fro the excel-en-us folder and files in this folder. After asking for all the files in the folder, it goes to asking once again, never ending loop.

I tried this.  While the dialog goes away, it continues to cycle back through the requested files.  I've tried installing upgraded XML parsers, etc. in the bottle before doing the Office install, but can't seem to get past this problem.  Any other suggestions?

Seems to be more related to destination than source.
Finally got this working and the change was to move the d: drive from an internal ntfs partition to an external vfat partition.
Needs to be looked into more but for now I'm just happy it's installing :)
