I just put in the Office 2012 disc and drilled down to "backupdisc.exe" and double clicked on it, got the full AShampoo gui install and chose to install Office 2010.
And then I checked, via Explorer File system and there was a the AShampoo folder!
And it was empty, totally! So I tried again but this time to install Office 2012, and everything happened as above!
Is Chairman Bill jealous of SoftMaker?
but is there a workaround, also.

When upgrading from Windows 7 (on which a licensed copy of Office was installed), I chose to reinstall from scratch, afer saving the relevant files (including the downloaded Softmaker install file, service pack file and license key). The trouble is that the install file (dated 26/11/2011) would not run, even elevated and in compatibility mode, but gave the error "unsupported operating system, major=6, version=2.2, sp=0.0, type=1".
