I have a unit here running Windows 8 and Office 2013 Pro Plus. Both were fresh installs a couple of months back. i.e. neither were upgrades from previous versions or trial versions.
Outlook has begun hanging from time to time and to a lesser extent Word and Excel are "acting up" as well. i.e. pausing, delay in saving, opening, etc.
From Programs and Features > Office 2013 > Change there is no Repair option. Strange. From the Office 2013 install CD I can run repair but it fails with a Bootstrapper has stopped working error. Only solutions I have found online says Uninstall Office and Reinstall (Microsoft's answer for everything)
This unit is not part of a Domain at this time and is highly configured. We do have extensive backups both image and incremental but would like to avoid going down the restore road if possible.
How can I Repair the Bootstrapper so I can Repair Office? i.e. Repair MS's Office Repair.
Also, if needed how do I preserve ALL Outlook data, accounts, folders, files, rules, etc. ? Then uninstall Office and reinstall (I can handle that part) Then restore EVERYTHING back into outlook?
