How to Install ProPlus

During fresh installations of Microsoft Office software, the installation wizard gives an error message stating that the file cannot be installed. This error could arise for several reasons. It could be a memory problem on the hard drive or in the ram. It could also be the result of a bad disk or a simple disk read error.
