Whenever I run into a weird bug or workaround I like to do a short post about it.  Doing so helps the community and it is also self-serving in case I run into it a year or so later after I've long forgot about it.  Today is one of those times.

My latest disk batch came for my MSDN subscription and I decided to upgrade Expression Blend and Web to version 2.  Granted I haven't really used these tools too much, but I plan on doing so in the future.  The installation of Blend went without a hitch, but Web failed indicating that I was out of disk space.  I have about 40 GB free so I know that's not the issue.

A quick Web search on (I don't like Google) led me to a forum post somewhere that explained that the problem seemed to be with Office.  I wasn't going to go through that today, so I decided that perhaps it was something about the Office installation.  The only thing that stood out to me was an add-in for saving to a PDF document.  (My company is in love with the PDF format for same reason.)

Removing that would be easy enough, so I uninstalled it and tried the Expression Web installation again.  Sure enough the installation completed without a problem.  I then reinstalled the save to PDF add-in for Office and I was on my way again.
