Error # 0x80040707 during installation


Oct 12, 2007
There is an old thread about this problem. Has anyone ever found a fix for it other than reinstalling the operating system?

This error occurs right before the license agreement page. Below is a description of the error posted a few years ago:

"Hi guys,

I get this error message while trying to install Civilization IV :

"Error number : 0X80040707
Description : DLL function call crashed: ISRT._CtrlSetMLERichText

Setup will now terminate"

When I click on OK a second error message pops up :
"Error number : 0X80040707
Description : ISRT._ReleaseObjectContext"

Then when I click on OK a third message appears :
"Error number : 0X80040707
Description : ISRT._ListDestroy"

Any help on how to resolve this? I can't install the game at all...
I've cleaned out my Temp folder... I just want to play the game!
Thanks for the help"

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
