After you install the Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac Standard Edition upgrade, you receive the following error message when you start an Office 2004 for Mac program:
Upgrade Verification

To continue installation, select the folder that contains the earlier version of the software (Microsoft Office X folder, for example). The folder can be located on either your computer or the CD-ROM from which you originally installed the earlier version of the software.


This problem occurs because the Office 2004 upgrade verification program cannot find a qualifying product that is installed on the computer.
