Many thanks to create a new question here !
The error might be occurred due to registry key problem. u can rectify this error:
Click Start > Run > regedit and press enter key, and try to locate the below:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\Installer\Products\DFAD2CEE8555CA04E8C905508C8F018E
From keyboard, press Delete key and click Yes to confirm deletion. Now quit Regedit.
Remember, the last key i.e. DFAD…. may change ! so carefully do this. (Source from Microsoft)
CAUTION: It is good practice to take registry backup and other necessary data backup before doing anything with Registry key. U may get support from an expert for that purpose.
If u not able to do the above, go to Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs. Click to select the Office system product from the application list, and then click Remove. Now again fresh reinstall the same product. Don’t worry, it just removes the Office SW not the user files. Most probably U r trying to install File called “FileFormatConverts.exe”. If I am right, u may go for other way to convert….
If u r getting to read .docx files from Word 2003, u can go for online conversion <a href=”http://www.docx2doc.com/convert/docx-to-doc”>Here</a> OR <a href=”http://www.zamzar.com/”>Convert</a> or u may also try <a href=”http://docx-converter.com/”>T</a>his
For bulk conversion visit <a href=”http://blogs.msdn.com/b/ericwhite/archive/2008/09/19/bulk-convert-doc-to-docx.aspx”>Here</a>
NOTES: Make a habit to change upper version office files always Save in Word 2003 format.

Hope it helps u !
