Error 1335 and/or Browse For Folder during Office 2010 install, Missing OfficeLR.Cab etc

A colleague spent a day banging his head against a wall doing a windows install yesterday, as our image kept failing during installing office 2010 with a  pop up”Browse For Folder” explorer box claiming “setup cannot find office.en-us\officelr.cab”, “The cabinet file ‘proof.cab’ required”  amongst others. Manual installs of office on the same machine failed in the same place.

We moved the hdd to another identical machine, install worked fine, decided to try a BIOS runin/memory test on the original laptop where everything failed – lo and behold a faulty DIMM.Replaced DIMM and all is fine.

There are countless, countless posts on this topic, so before you waste your time on anything else, run a memory test.
