Problem: Esri Maps for Office prerequisite installation repeats and the application fails to install

Description

Before installing Esri Maps for Office, the installation process checks the system for various prerequisites and prompts to install any missing dependent applications. Once completed, the installer should proceed to install Esri Maps for Office. Instead, it goes back to the System Check window and prompts to install prerequisites again. The process repeats in an endless loop and never gets to the next step to install Esri Maps for Office.

Cause
