Error 1309 While Installing Office Professional 2010.


While installing Office Professional 2010, the following error msg was displayed: "Microsoft Office Professional 2010 encountered an error during setup. Error 1309. Error reading from file :D:\Office XP 2003\Microsoft Office 11 v.2003\SKU0111.CAB. Verify that the file exists and that you can access it. Setup failed. Rolling back changes..."

This msg appeared some time after entering the Product Key and about half way into the installation.

I am trying to install the software on a Toshiba Notebook, with

  • 32-bit Operating System with 3 GB memory (RAM) and
  • Inter Core Duo CPU T5670 @1.8GHz 1.80GHz processor. 
  • using Windows Vista Business with Service Pack 2 installed.
Note that the I do not have a disk as the Office Professional 2010 was downloaded (X16-32007.exe)  and saved to the desktop as per instructions.

Any suggestions to correcting this error would be greatly appreciated. 

Thank you..
