When remote users are accessing the Terminal Server, Word and Excel crash for apparent reason.

Environment
Terminal Services on Server 2008 R2 with SP1 and updates
connecting to SBS 2008 with SP1 and updates
Uses Access 2010 Runtine installed for Access 2010 database which is on the SBS server.

Approx 25 users and cannot currently pin it down to a particular user.

We have re-installed MSO2007, repaired MSO2007, and run Office Diag.
What else can we try?

Thanks, AT

Did you run through the customisation wizard first?

Launch setup with the /a switch.

Then it'll remove things like the install on first run.

Otherwise, did you patch it to the latest SP and patch levels for Office?

Hi Tony

Otherwise, did you patch it to the latest SP and patch levels for Office?

I have 3 to install just now: 2 .NET Framwork and 1 x Silverlight.

I am also getting Warning: User Profile Service Event ID: 1530:-

The /a (or might be -a - doing from memory, sorry) launches the installer in "admin" mode.

It basically steps you through the installer and creates an customisation file - kind of like the old transform (.mst) files of earlier versions of Office.

You then place that in the updates folder of the Office install folder and it should pick up your customisations.

I don't believe any of thos missing updates will cause a problem - did you tell Windows Update to update office, too, though?

The registry error is quite common - it just means something locked the profile in use at logoff. There are third party apps now (incouding some free) that can assist but at this point it shouldn't be a major worry.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

If I install Office 2010 from the command line using, would that solve the issues?

Thanks

It's not from the command line but the same process applies as 2007.

Perform an admin installation with the /a switch, which will create the necessary update file.

You actually just walk through the setup as you otherwise would, but instead of installing, it creates the file (a .MSP from memory).

Copy the file created into the updates sub-folder of the office install folder.

Install as normal.

Ok it seems I may have it a bit wrong now on 2010.

There's some very useful information here that you might want to read:

Hi
Client does not want MSO2010Pro on the Term Server.
So I will install MSO2007Enterprise instead.
Thanks for the link.

Good luck with testing.

I take it you ran through an admin install?

Oh and I'd make sure it's also patched to latest SP & HF levels.

I did not complete the OCT yesterday, and needless to say we still had the same issues.
However, I have just completed the OCT and saved it into the Updates folder on the Network Installation Point (NIP).
Followed this OCT video:
http://www.microsoft.com/resources/msdn/en-us/office/media/video/officetc.html?uuid=8a877eed-d0f2-4f9a-95bd-0c29e2b708f0&from=mscomoffice

I will reboot early in the morning as someone was using the TS at the time, and see if that has resolved the issues.

I ran the setup.exe from the NIP and did a repair, will that check the Updates folder OCT.MSP file during the repair process?

The MSO2007Ent was a fresh download from the VLSC and it seemed to have ALL the updates in the Updates folder.

Hi  Tony

Sorry I forgot to get back to you.

Following your advice, I uninstalled MSO2007, and installed the MSO2010 using an admin install using /a and configured the OCT.
The Terminsal Server users had no issues after this.

Many thanks

Once I understood the Admin install and configured the OCT.

Apologies for the late reply and assigned points.
