Error message during Office 2000 or Office XP installation: “Error 1335 – Cannot Copy Cab File”


Office 2007 installation stops because missing office.en-us\

Reason: despite what you may find online. I found that the issue is caused by a damage memory module. You can either replace the bad module or use the solution outlined on Microsoft Website at KB314810
