"When I did that, everyting copied except for the Proofing folder. It said something about the file type being windows installer file."
Copying a folder is not likely to give a message about the file type of a particular file in the folder. So maybe you can tell it a little bit more to-the-point.
My guess at the moment: it's a damaged CD. If you registered with Microsoft, they can send you a copy for a reasonable price. Or the more informal way: find somebody (a friend, a colleague, a family member) who has the same CD and copy that particular folder via your USB-stick to your own PC.
After reinstalling Windows Vista due to Windows not loading all the way. I cant reinstall MS Office 2007. The message "Setup Cannot find Proofing.en.-us\Proof.fr/Proof.msi. I have tried to several fixes and the same thing comes up. The first fix was to make sure you run the windows updates and then try installing. That didnt work. Then try copying all the MS Office files from the CD into a Temporary MS Office File. When I did that, everyting copied except for the Proofing folder. It said something about the file type being windows installer file. I have tried to go to a website to find that file and download it, but no luck yet. Any help would be appreciated.
