Hi,

I'm running a terminal server environment on Windows Server 2008 R2 and we are running into an issue with an add-in to Excel.  I'd like to try re-installing office to see if that helps, but I'm not sure what that would do to the user profiles on the server.  Would it affect things such as default file locations in Word or their Outlook profiles?

Any help on this would be great as we have a lot of users on this server and I don't want to make any changes that would mess with their profiles.

Thanks!

why not try uninstalling that add-in and reinstalling it.

Regarding the ms office file locations like word, excel and ppt, there will be no effect on reinstalling. but for outlook you should map the data path. but please ensure that you have a back up of all files before you start.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply.  I actually have tried re-installing that add-in, but that hasn't worked.

Do you think a repair of Office would be worth a try?

Thanks!

I was able to get this issue taken care of.  Basically, .Net 3.5 needs to be installed before Office 2010 for this add-in and then it actually works.  Kind of weird, but that solved it.

Thanks for the suggestions!
