MS Office Professional Hybrid 2007 opens instead of Word
Posted on 2008-11-10
I cannot open anylonger the Office applications Word, Excel, ... on my Vista Ultimate 64 bit machine.
Trying to open Word, a mix of messages appear: "Please wait while Windows configures MS Office Professional Hybrid 2007"; another one: "MS Office has not been installed for the current user. Please run setup to install the application".
I have already uninstalled Microsoft Office 2007 and installed it again: no improvement.
The WINWORD.EXE file is located in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office12".
The shortcut "Microsoft Office Word 2007" is located in "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Microsoft Office".
In this shortcut definition, the defined Target is "Microsoft Office Professional Hybrid 2007" (in gray; which I cannot change) and the "Start in" field = empty!!! (instead of the location of the WINWORD.EXE file).
How can I change this? There is only one account (Administrator) defined on my Vista Ultimate 64 bit machine.
Thank you for giving feedback.
