Can't install OFFICE 2010-says "Error 1402. Setup cannot open the registry key"

Error 1402. Setup cannot open the registry key

UNKNOWN\Components\8BEFF...and a very long number

Verify that you have sufficient permissions to access the registry or contact Microsoft Product support Services(PSS) for Assistance.


I installed OFFICE 2010 BETA in February over OOFICE 2007.

I have used CLEAN2R and WINDOWS INSTALL CLEANUP and deleted OFFICE entries in the Registry with regedit to no avail.

Can anyone help what to do next?
