Setup cannot find setup.exe when intallating Office Professional 2007 from new CD's.

I bought a new Toshiba Windows7 laptop that comes with the 60-day trial version of Office 2007 Home and Student that I downloaded from Microsoft wesite. When installing from Office Pro 2007 cds that I  recently purchased, I encountered the problem. I tried to solve the problem in Browse and selected the CD drive that is installing the Office CDs, the same message pops up "Setup cannot find Pro WW\Setup.xml".  Where can I find the setup.exe in my computer? Do I have to uninstall the trial version first before I install my Office 2007 discs?
