Background: I have been using windows since 3.11 when I was in second grade and we got rid of our DOS box. I consider myself a proficient user to highly proficient user, having built 4 of my own machines. I have installed Office 2010 Professional and the program works.
Setup: Lenovo ideapad y500 purchased January 2013 with Windows 8
Problem: Windows will not allow me to set Word 2010 as my default program for opening .docx or other valid formats. I can open the documents from within the program, just not by default.
1) Right-click file > choose default program > Word 2010 not available > browse for and specify location > set program to default. Result = System Message "This app can't run on your pc."
2) Consulted Microsoft support site to search for solution. Same result.
Desired Resolution: how to set that default application. All of you who read this are also annoyed with Microsoft's awful customer service.
I have just got a new laptop with Windows 8 I have downloaded Office 2010 (as I don't have a CD) but when it loaded It gives me an option to open in verious apps but none of them allows me to install to the OS ....
I have a subscription to Office 365 Small Business Premium. The install on my Windows 7 64 Bit machine went fine a has been working great for about 3 weeks now. I was at the office yesterday and for some reason Word 2013 fails on startup. It starts up, I select the blank page option and then it fails. It calls home (to Microsoft?) and tells me they will let me know when they have a solution. This is a small business how long am I supposed to wait for their solution? I need a solution now for Word 2013 now.
Everything else still works, Outlook 2013, Excel 2103. etc. I am thinking of removing this machine from the subscription and uninstalling Office 2013 and then downloading and installing it again.
Any easier way to get this Word 2013 functioning again
Downloaded Office 2010 (had a disc but without driver wouldn't play). Used the key that came with the disc. Downloaded ok. I can find it in the apps, I can even have it open but when I try to open a Word file I receive in an email for example I get the screen that asks me to either buy it or if I already have it, to enter the key. Enter the key and it says it's not valid, but is the key I used to download.
I recently acquired an Office 2013 Professional download, and whenever and however I try to install it I get this strange error that I have never seen the likes of before (code 1920, Windows Font Cache Service failed to start).
I have included a pic of the error and the error log ....
I downloaded the hebrew language pack for my version of office, but it won't install. It says I am running the "preview" version of office, and I can't install a language pack on it. True that I once had that version, but now, I am running an activated professional plus with all updates.
I then tried downloading a full installation file for hebrew office 2013, and choosing the "repair" option instead of "install". It "repaired" everything, but I still don't have an option for hebrew interface in the language tools.
Is there a way to manually install the language interface files I need?
Having issues with my installation. I've tried man methods but an Error always occurs. It says something about my invalidity to install due to previous trial versions of microsoft office is already installed. The thing is, i have no office in my rig yet. I've tried installing trial versions then uninstalled it, but still the same problem occurs.
After applying microsoft updates about a week ago, office stopped working. finally saw that executables were all renamed w/.bak ext. I tried renaming, just comes up with an error and still none of the office apps. work. I wanted to reinstall, but having problems finding key code, used several 3rd party key code finder apps. But will not find 0ffice 2013. shows office 2013 is installed in control panel/programs. I need access to my calendar desperately.
I installed Office 2013 two weeks ago. The setup automatically pinned Office apps on my start menu. But after couple of days, the icons from some of the office apps automatically got erased from the tiles and now it looks so ugly. I tried re-pinning apps on start menu but it didn't work. I also tried sfc /scannow but it was in vein. How to fix it and get the icons back on the tiles?
I try to reinstall office 2013. I followed everything.
I have tried the auto fix remove office registry. I also deleted everything related in program date, program Files, program(x86). I deleted everything related to office in registry. I also tried clean boot, turn off all start app, run only system service, turn off printer spooler.
I have done all those but still get the same error message, ' Setup bootstrapper has stopped working'.
I upgraded from Windows 7 Ultimate x86 to Windows 8 Pro with Media Center x64 5 months ago.
I installed Office 2013 Pro Plus 4 months ago, last 2 weeks I tried to uninstall it (for some bugs) but it didn't fully uninstall because of "Printer Spooler" service was not available (It was an issue but I resolved it last week). So I tried to uninstall but I didn't find Office 2013 in Add/Remove Programs, I never-minded and tried to install Office today, it was 99% finished but it rolls back and give me an error "Microsoft Professional Plus encountered an error during setup" and I click "Finished" then the setup says "Microsoft Bootstrapper has stopped working" so I read in the internet and people says that some registry keys is still there so I tried the Office 2013 Uninstall Fix-It program where it is here but it doesn't find anything! So I found a video on how to uninstall Office 2010 manually, and I used it on Office Pro Plus 2013 but nothing! I opened Event Viewer and found the Office 2013 log:
Fault bucket , type 0 Event Name: OfficeClassicSetup Response: Not available Cab Id: 0
The log is found in the attachments!
I have Windows 8 Pro with Media Center x64 and I tried installing both Office 2013 Pro Plus x86 & x64 and in this log I used x64!
Office 2013 will not install on my computer. It starts going and at some point it just says there's an error and quits. It doesn't give me an error number or anything, it just stops. Here's a little context though:
I have a Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13, and overall I've been very satisfied with the computer. However, it only came with a 128 GB SSD hard drive, so I decided to add another 128 GB SSD in the second hard drive slot. I got it in the computer and it works perfectly as far as I can tell.The only other thing I changed on my computer was to move the music library to the new hard drive. After adding the hard drive, I tried to use office some time later and it wouldn't work. I tried repairing it with the install disk, and it didn't work. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, and it didn't work. It always just stops at some point as I said above. Is there a reason adding a hard drive or moving a library would effect Office?
Whenever I try to install Microsoft Office 2013, the progress bar reaches full then reverses about half way then I get an error saying "Microsoft setup bootstrapper has stopped working". I have already tried clean booting, safe mode, turning off AV, using repair kit. I tried installing Microsoft .NET framework but it said my OS already comes with it, however I cannot find it in Programs and Features.
INFO -I do not press "Install" I use a custom install settings -I have autorun disabled so I open it by running setup.exe as admin -I have the preview evaluation version -32 bit version will install however I want 64 bit because my computer is a 64 bit OS
(Word 2010) I found at least half a dozen methods on the Microsoft Forums for changing Word's "Normal Template" and making the changes permanent. It works for the font and margins, but not for the background color. In fact, when I open a new document and go to "Page Layout > Page Color" it shows that the color I want is already selected, and yet the background of the document is still white!
I have Windows 8.1 PRO. I have an Excel spreadsheet in SkyDrive. I can open the spreadsheet on my Windows phone and I can open it if I use a browser to access SkyDrive, but if I use the SkyDrive app tile I get an error that Windows doesn't know how to open Excel files. there is a SkyDrive desktop app and SkyDrive Webapps and a SkyDrive Metro app.So, you can't open Office documents using the SkyDrive app?
Although I have an Oo shortcut icon on the Desktop & a listing under 'Documents', I also have an Oo tile in the Start menu. Why when I select the tile does it open on the Desktop. If I delete the shortcut icon & the Document listing will this allow it to open as a full-screen site from the Start menu?
