SAP Business Intelligence Live Office


I am attempting to install Business Objects Live Office on my machine and am getting an error that states

"Microsoft Office XP and later applications: Excel, Word, Outlook or PowerPoint must be pre-installed"

Then the installation quits.

I have done some research on this and from what I have seen Live Office is not supported by Microsoft 2010, which is installed on my computer.

People have stated that a workaround would be to install Microsoft Office 2007, install Live Office, and then uninstall Office 2007.

Another workaround that I have seen is to actually edit the LiveOffice.msi file.

I do not want to have to actually edit the msi file at this point.

Is there anything that you could point out to me that may help solve this issue?

Thank You,

Former Member
