An office Bootstrapper error occurred when users upgrade office from old version of office. The Error says “Microsoft Setup Bootstrapper has Stopped Working“. There are many reasons for this problem like driver problem, old version of Microsoft Office, firewall or other security software etc. When you trying to upgrade Microsoft Office 2010 to Office 2013, the progress of installation gets to the end but suddenly it’s going backward and says “Set up failed”.

This problem is depending on many things like your system not meet minimum system requirement, there are problem in Windows registry, firewall problems etc. So here I found some tips to solve this issue.
