postComment: "I migrated to a Snow Leopard MacPro to a Lion 10.1 Mac Mini (2011). Could not get past Microsoft Office Setup assistant, as described above. \n\nFirst, reinstalled Mac Office 2008 to v12.0.0 from disk image of the original CD, which eventually launched without seeing Setup Assistant. But failed to apply first essential update to 12.1.0, because installer said my hard drive did not contain the necessary software. This is a known problem to Microsoft, and the solution I found was detailed on this page: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/969065\n\nBasically, required an *almost* complete uninstall of Office 2008. Here is the bit that actually worked:\n\nTo remove and reinstall Office 2008 for Mac:\n 1. Quit all running applications.\n 2. On the Go menu, click Applications.\n 3. Drag Microsoft Office 2008 to the Trash.\n 4. On the Go menu, click Home.\n 5. Open Library.\nNote The Library folder is hidden in MAC OS X Lion. To display this folder, hold down the OPTION key while you click the Go menu.\n\n 6. Open Preferences.\n 7. Open Microsoft, and then Office 2008.\n 8. Drag Microsoft Office 2008 settings.plist to the Trash.\n 9. On the Apple menu, click Restart.\n 10. Reinstall Office 2008 for Mac.\n\nTo remove and reinstall Office for Mac 2011:\n\n 1. Quit all running applications.\n 2. On the Go menu, click Applications.\n 3. Drag Microsoft Office 2011 to the Trash.\n 4. On the Go menu, click Home.\n 5. Open Library.\nNote The Library folder is hidden in MAC OS X Lion. To display this folder, hold down the OPTION key while you click the Go menu.\n\n 6. Open Preferences, and then drag the Microsoft folder to the Trash.\n 7. On the Apple menu, click Restart.\n 8. Reinstall Office for Mac 2011.\n\n\nAfter doing that, I reinstalled Mac Office 2008 v 12.0.0, then successfully could apply the v12.1.0 update that Microsoft Updater demanded (although I used a downloaded disk image of the updater). Next, Updater demanded update to 12.3.1 (dated 9/13/2011), which I manually downloaded and applied. As I write, this seems to have worked: I can launch Word without any messages to either update or from the Assistant."
