Trouble with installing Office 2010

Had some issues installing Microsoft Office 2010 today. A couple of hours down the drain. The error I got was the following where the value and GUID varied between each try.

Error 1406. Setup cannot write the value Assembly to the registry key \Software\Classes\{00020906-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}\InprocServer32\14.0.0.0.

This wasn’t an actual permission problem with the registry. Instead it was something called Sentinel HASP License Manager that caused this. After disabling the service and rebooting before retrying the Office installation again it worked. Just stopping and disabling the service did not help. Thanks a lot for that Smartbear (The Sentinel service is installed by Smartbear AQtime)!

  1. Don’t know how you figured this one out… good stuff though. It resolved my issue.

  2. Thank you soooo much! I’ve been searching for a solution for hours, and your solution is the only one who worked! 😀

  3. Thank you for your post….I wasted almost 5 hours on this until finally stumbling across your blog post. I’ve got no idea which program installed the Sentinel HASP controller on my system but this was exactly what was preventing my Office upgrade from executing.

    HUGE appreciation!!!!!!

    I’ve spent some hours as well before I found this page.
    I wonder how this Sentinel stuff made the office 2016 installation fail…..
