I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Hello, I don't know if you can help with this..

Since the logon problem, Microsoft Office has told me I need to activate it but won't let me as I have used it too many times - the thing is, I activated the day before the logon failed and it was fine so not sure why it's asking me to do it again.

Now it tells me because I have installed it too many times that I have to buy another copy!!!!!

There is no way I am giving Microsoft another penny of my money when it was a vista problem that has caused this in the first place, what can I do? I've tried the activation phone line but it's not a real person.

Any suggestions?

I recently formatted my computer, which had a registered version of Microsoft Office XP for Students and Teachers. After I re-installed the software, when I tried to register it, it said that the software's registration code was already in use. I'm sure that I used the correct CD. Is there any way to de-register my pre-formatted version of Microsoft Office?

So I had an issue where I couldn't access Microsoft Office 2010. I had recently installed a trial version of 2013 to open some documents that I had put onto my USB; I think this may have had a problem with the other version. Microsoft 2010 wouldn't open, though I can't remember what the error said. This Microsoft 2010 was already installed on my laptop and I'm sure it wasn't a trial version. I was told to uninstall Microsoft 2010 so I went to control panel>uninstall program>Microsoft 2010 English (I was told to not uninstall the Microsoft 2010 click to run). After I uninstalled Microsoft 2010 English, I couldn't find Microsoft 2010 click to run but I could still see it as an option of a program to uninstall. How do I get Microsoft Office 2010 back?

Update Diagnostic — Unable to access a required file

The Update Diagnostic was unable to run because it requires a file that you have chosen not to download. To give Microsoft Office permission to download this file, do one of the following in one of these 2007 Office release programs:

Access, Excel, PowerPoint, or Word

Click the Office Button, and then click Access Options, Excel Options, PowerPoint Options, or Word Options.
Click Trust Center, click Trust Center Settings, and then click Privacy Options.
Select the Download a file periodically that helps determine system problems check box.
Wait about a week to allow the file to be downloaded, and then run Microsoft Office Diagnostics again.

Hi, I installed Office 2003 on my computer a few months ago after I had a virus and paid to get my computer wiped and ended up with none of my XP stuff left. It was working great until about 2 weeks ago when suddenly any Office program won't open. I am lost without my Outlook and Word and have tried everything to fix it. I ran virus scan, did a repair, deleted and reinstalled, etc. I have tried every computer setting. It will open for a second and say that it is not installed for the current user (I am administrator for computer and set it up) and in Word says "the function you are trying to run contains macros or content that requires macros support. When the software was installed, you or your administrator chose not to install support for macros or controls". I looked this up on the internet and followed the directions to set macros to run on my computer but it still does not work. Desperate for my calendar in Outlook, I just installed a Microsoft trial of Visio Professional and even that won't run on the computer after saying setup was successful. Thank you for any help I really appreciate it!!!

Im having a problem with my Compact Presario SR 1000, Product number PU166AV #ABA. I am using Windows XP professional with SP3 and Microsoft Office plus 2007. The problem started after running a computer system maintenance and optimizer utility program by Acelogix.
Following optimizing my outlook 2007 failed to open. When Starting Outlook 2007 I am getting this error message: An extension failed to initialize. Cannot open file extend.dat. The file
may not exist, you may not have permission to open it
The Microsoft website suggested to find the extend.dat file, rename the file extend.old and start outlook. This did not work, and they also suggested deleting the file which also fail to solve the problem.
I then to my Microsoft office CD and ran the repair utility which did not work. The next thing I did was to delete and re-install office. Still no luck but the error message has changed to
An extension failed to initialize. Out of memory or system resources. Close some windows or programs and try again. Not having other programs or windows open I cancel the error message and windows continues to try to open but now I get an the following error message Can not start Microsoft Office, Can not open the outlook window.

Well, I think you have learned why most of us here do NOT recommend the use use of these "System maintenance and optimizer" programs.

I would back up ALL of your data, email, music, videos and etc to a external device. Now plan on rebuilding your machine.

But before you do the rebuild, look into this system maintenance and optimizer, and see if there is a "Recover", "Restore" entry so you may be able to "Undo" what was done. If not, these programs do way to may changes, we will never know what all was done and may never be able to recover your programs into working order.

Dear friends,

I have just reinstalled the entire system on a nearly new computer (I was using it on vista and switched to XP). for some reason, I can't get the microphone to work (and it was working fine on vista before I reinstalled XP). The skype test call produces no result, and the windows hardware test is also fruitless. This happens with a microphone plugged in or not (in the RED socket ).

Here's what I've already done:
- I've tested the microphone in another computer, so I know that part is ok.
- I've tried driver update and windows says I have the latest version, but driveragent says otherwise (it points to a version released on May 7 2008, but doesn't give me any other information unless I pay), and the same appears to be true on download.com and realtek.com.tw.
- I've tried "troubleshooting" and that just leads me to contact my manufacturer to see if they have a newer driver version
- I've searched microsoft support but only find solutions such as this one that are inconsistent with my situation (they refer to "office XP" and not "office 2007") and direct me to places and procedures that cannot be found on my computer -- nor can similar ones.
- I've downloaded two different possible updates (version R2.15 from Download.com here) and version R2.28 from Realtek here, but I'm not sure if they're the ones I need and am afraid to test them. Also, I'm not sure if it is a driver update issue, but I suspect so -- t... Read more

Hi, I had microsoft office 2002 installed on my pc but recently I re-formatted the hard drive and when I tried to re-install it wouldn't accept the product key that I have for it. I tried several times and checked it carefully as I typed it in but it wouldn't accept it.

Does anyone have any ideas as to why this would be? I don't really want to have to buy another copy.
 

A:Can't install Microsoft Office XP

Just a couple of thought/questions.

Is Office XP an OEM? That is say Office you bought with a Dell desktop or another brand. If it is it can only be installed on the same computer. So when you reformatted did you use the original OEM XP CD?

so i have a laptop that i got in 2003 and i bought microsoft office pro with it. well my laptop is having problems and i have an extended warranty on it, the company said that the harddrive might have to be formated and i should backup everything

since my laptop didn't come with office and the cd got lost with the move to college, is there a way to copy the office program files?

what im talking about is how with a game you can copy the folder ..programs files/ea games/need for speed... like that and if you copy that folder to another computer it will work without having to be installed. i know its not in the registry.

hopefully this makes some sort of sense, im very tired and this laptop goes away on monday and i have no idea where this cd is.

This is a bit confusing.
You state above that five of them can be applied but then quote part of what may be an error message?

Do you really mean they can't be applied?

As for the "error creating process ^svstatus sptimer", the "^svstatus" part reveals no information when researching. The "caret" (^) is particularly concerning.

Any chance you could repost the error(s) -exactly- as displayed, checking the spelling of the last one in particular?

Also what Windows version are we talking about here?

I put the disk in, click "Start Installation", and it says "This is not an HP or Compaq computer."

Strangely I can easily look above my screen I see HP Pavilion dv2000.

The only thing I could think of that could be wrong might be the fact that my computer broke previously (unheard of for an HP, right?) and I took it to a repair service. The hard disk drive was physically damaged, they replaced it, about $200 in total including labor, and they re-installed Vista. That's why I have to install Office again.

Besides that there were no other changes.

My Windows 2000 computer refused to boot, citing a problem
with the software hive. Poking around the Web, the solution I was told
was to delete system32\config\software and copy in repair\system\software in its place.

I did that, and the machine will now boot. Doing that cleaned out any memory the system had of any installed software. So, okay, I pull out my
Microsoft Office 2000 installation disks and try to get to work.

But, attempting to install anything fails. All that happens is that I get

The only reason for the problem that I have encountered is;

The downloaded source has corrupted files / folders and you need to download entire software once again.
It sometime happens, when it is downloded from a network / Internet.

You may need to call Microsoft for a new download source.

Hi! So a friend of mine has been having an issue with Microsoft Office Outlook 2007. It all started this week, she turned on her computer and Outlook Office 2007 windows started to pop up non-stop. She tried restarting it but as soon as her computer was on the windows started popping up again. She contacted a repairman to help her and the first night everything was fine, I don't remember her complaining about it but the next night it started again; only 2 windows popped up. But the next morning everything started again, windows started to pop up, this time every 10 seconds but still very very annoying.
 
She has tried opening the task manager and closing Outlook but obviously that did not really help her. She has also tried deleting Outlook but I can't remember if she said she could not or that deleting it did not help. We have no idea if it's a virus or something else.
 
My friend has Windows Vista and I have Windows 8 so I can't help her much. She really needs to solve this issue since she can't work without a computer, thank you so much for the help!

Howdy all,

This is my first post on the forum! I've had an extremely frustrating problem and can't figure it out. I hope someone here can help me out! In short 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?

Thanks in advance!

Willm

A:Microsoft Office 2013 will not install

Hi Willm,

welcome to Eight Forums! Good to have you aboard.

About your problem. It is not a problem related to you adding an extra SSD and moving a library. That stuff doesn't influence the Office installation.

Before I can give you advice I need more information. Please provide the following info:
Is it a plain Office pack or the Click-To-Run Office pack?Do you try installing it from a DVD disc or from a standalone executable?Where did you buy the licence?What kind of virusprotection are you using? (i.e. Windows Defender, McAfee, Norton etc.)

I am unable to install Microsoft Office on my computer. I receive a "insert disc into drive d" error message when the CD is in the drive. It only does this with this disc. I also have the communicator disc that installs without difficulty. I have tried the disc on another computer without problems. I have tried several other CD's on this computer also and have not had a problem, ONLY the mircrosoft office 2007 CD.

I just can't install Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013 which I downloaded from it's official web site.
I'm using Windows 8.1 64 bit right here.
I can install Microsoft Office 365 with no problem (but I've uninstalled it for some reasons) but this one is just too much...

I can run the installer, but when it is in installing process, then one of these things happen :
1. Says "The file powerpoint.en-us\PowerPointMUI.msi could not be found
But I can see in that folder that that msi file is really exist.
2. Says "Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013 encountered an error during setup,
3. Crashes.

I've tried using clean booting, or compatibility troubleshooting like trying it on Vista or Win 7, but really nothing works.
Please help me, I'm losing my mind here, really need this thing ASAP...
Thank you.

I accidentally deleted the MSOcache folder.When i try to install Microsoft Office 2003, its says :Microsoft Office Setup did not complete successfully. We are sorry for the inconvenience. Is there anyway to download the MSOcache ?

A:Can't able to install Microsoft Office 2003..

The MSOCache folder is created when you install Office 2003 from the install disk.You are then given the choice to keep it or delete it. It's best to keep it as occasionallyyou are asked if you want to install features and if you do, the program accessesthe Cache folder, otherwise you would need to insert your install disk.So, do you have a Microsoft Office disk. If so and you are having problems setting up,you need to ensure that the program is properly uninstalled first and then try again.If it sets up OK, you will have a new MSOCache folder, if you have chosen to keep the setup files on your computer.If you have no disk, the answer is no, you cannot download an MSOCache folder.Remove the Office program through Add /Remove. If it won't go for some reason,you could use the REVO uninstaller.Freeware version:http://download.cnet.com/Revo-Uninstaller/...4-10687648.htmlThe WinCleanup Utility may also assist:MS Article (kb 290301) :"When you are working on your computer and installing a new program, the installation suddenly fails. Now you are left with a partly installed program. You try to install the program again, but you are unsuccessful. Or, maybe you have problems trying to remove an old program because the installation files are corrupted. You can use the utility to remove installation information for programs that were installed by using Windows Installer. Be aware that Windows Installer CleanUp Utility will not remove the actual program from your computer. Howev... Read more

Hey there!

When i tried to install Microsoft Office 2013 i get a message saying "This 64bit product may not be installed with Microsoft Office Click-To-Run" so i went and uninstalled ALL previous versions of Microsoft Office and tried again, Again i was still prompted with this message, any help would be appreciated,
Thanks
Michael

A:Cant Install Microsoft Office 2013

The "Click to Run" only works for the 32 bit version as far as I know. If you are only using Office 2013 for home or small business use Microsoft recommend that the 32 bit version be installed, as there are actually more features available on the 32 bit version. Of course the 32 bit version works perfectly on Windows 7 x64. I use the 32 bit office 2013 Pro on my Windows 7 x64.
If you wish to install the 64 bit version, load the Office DVD & then Open to explore the files & if you check these you will find the 64 bit version, then double click on that & it will install the 64 bit version.

Ok so I switched my computer out yesterda for a new computer. My old one got a virus in it, and have to use a loaner until I can get it fixed. I use it for college, and the computer my landlord gave me did not come with Microsoft Office. I went to install it on there and I get this message: Setup can not find HomeStudentr.WW\HomeSrWW.cab. Choose a valid installation source....What am I supposed to do??? If I can't get this installed, my professors are going to flunk me this week, and they don't accept anything written in Open Office at my university. I do everything 100% online. Any help would ge GREATLY apprecated.
 

A:Microsoft Office 2007 won't install

A document written in Open Office and saved as a .doc shouldn't be distinguishable from a Word document.

You can use Office Live or Google Docs as well.

As an aside, any professor who threatened to flunk me for using Open Source software in this manner would get a reminder of his job description and the source of his salary.

I have reinstalled my Microsoft office 2013 pro plus 64bit because i bought an SSD that replaced my HDD.

Last time i installed this on the HDD it took up between 2-3 GB of space on the drive.
When you look up system requirements for office 2013 it will tell you 3GB space required, 64bit or 32bit.

This time around installing it and after all the updates through Windows update, it took about 6 GB.
I am wondering why, is this right ? Is this possibly due to service pack updates till now ?

Thought i read last ones were end of July 2014.

I did do a Disk Cleanup, even removed updates in download folder in C: Windows/Software Distribution.

I also know it creates a hidden folder on C: drive called MSOCache, this only holds about 830MB.
Told by some it is required to be there in case of a install repair and updates.
This is not that much of the amount that i am in question of.

Well i can not seem to find any answers online to verify if it is correct to be taking this much space up, if so i am fine, just wondering if it is right.

A:install of Microsoft Office 2013 Pro Plus

Update on this topic, talked to Microsoft support they tell me this is normal to be this size and also due to my system settings and specs.

Since i installed it again, was 57 updates, although i can not see how big each update is now, do not think i downloaded 3GB of updates unless they expanded during installation.

Said something else about language packs possibly being cause, do not see any of those in the updates. When i reinstalled it i usually do not uncheck anything not to be installed, just all the defaults.

Revo uninstaller
shows it at 1279.80MB but again not including updates and service pack.

Help please! My husband purchased Microsoft Office 97 Pro off of ebay. He paid , I think about $100 for it.

The problem is, when trying to install it on the system, we keep getting the following error message: "Setup Error 797- Object 3600- Your setup files maybe damaged. Try restarting the setup program from where you originally run it."

We've tried that and sometimes we get a message saying that the install may damage my computer.

Can anybody help. Please tell me he hasn't been had.

Helpful wife.

Hello,
 
So the problem is that I have a Microsoft Office Professional disc but yesterday my friend asked me to install Home and Student version as lately he losed his disc and is unable to install it and here is the question, is it with Microsoft Office the same like with Windows Vista/7 where I can input Home and Student key into Professional version and it will install it or do I need to download home and student iso from technet ?

A:Can I install a Microsoft Office in this case ?

Hi SmallB1gMac If you want to install Microsoft Office Home and Student, you need a Home and Student disc. If you want to install Microsoft Office Professional, you need a Professional disc. Simple as that The product key won't determine the version of Office you are using here.
