I need to uninstall Microsoft,Office.Interop.Word assembly on a Windows Vista PC

Hi all,
I have a problem with Act! 2009 on a Vista Laptop.
Sage say I need to uninstall the Microsoft.Office.Interopt.Word assembly from the c:\windows\assembly folder in Vista.
When I try to uninstall it - it says I can't access it.
The laptop came with Office 2007 - but it was uninstalled and 2003 was loaded.
Any ideas??
Many thanks,
Mike

Hi GLComputing,
Sorry, I was away from the office for a couple of weeks!
I tried the KB827659 solution - and still it refused to uninstall!
I have since flattened the machine and installed XP - Now working fine (and quicker!!)
Many thanks for all your help,
Mike

What version of Outlook was installed when you installed ACT!?

BTW: you might add the EE ACT! Zone to the question

Hi,

sorry for the late reply - the weekend got in the way!!

The laptop never really had Outlook 2007 - but because it was Vista it had the preinstall.

We immediatley uninstalled 2007 and installed 2003 - and this was on when Act was installed.

But I'm guessing the Microsoft.Office.Interopt.Word assembly from the c:\windows\assembly folder never uninstalled correctly - and I can't uninstall it now!

Many thanks,

Mike

It's actually part of Office 2003... not sure why you're trying to uninstall it?

You can reinstall it form http://support.microsoft.com/kb/897646

Or just do a Detect and repair in any Office 2003 application (under the Help menu)

Hi,
many thanks for the very fast reply.
I am trying to uninstall it, because if you go to version it is 2007 and not 2003.
I have tried detect and repair and uninstalling / reinstalling office 2003 - but the Microsoft.Office.Interopt.Word assembly from 2007 doesn't change.
Many thanks,
Mike

I think that assembly name is only for Office 2003... what makes you think it's a 2007 version?

Hi,
once again thanks for the fast reply.
1). Sage told me so!!
2). It says version 12.0.0.0 - My PC is Vista with Word 2003 and it says 11.0.0.0 - so does my colleagues
Many thanks,

Try registering ole32.dll.

   1. Go to your Start menu and select Run
   2. Type "regsvr32 ole32.dll" (without quotes) and click Ok
   3. You should receive the following message: DllRegisterServer in ole32.dll succeeded.

Then try a Detect ad Repair on Office

Never believe Sage tech support unless it's one of the US guys.

hi,
Yep, never really trust sage - any thing out of the box and they always deny knowledge.
I shall remote in and try the ole32.dll and get back ASAP.
Many thanks,

Hi,
sorry for the late reply - took ages to get on their laptop!

It didn't work, I get the following error message:-

The module "ole32.dll" was loaded but the call to
DllRegisterServer failed with error code 0x80070005

Does this help??

I have now turned off UAC and registered the dll.

I then uninstalled / reinstalled office - but I still get the same error.

I then went through KB928218 on manually uninstalling office 2007, rebooted - still same problem.

Running out of ideas!!

The DLLRegister failure is that it didn't run as Admin - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/827659

Try going to to All Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt, right click on it and chose Run As Administrator

Then try the "regsvr32 ole32.dll" (no quotes) there.
