Hello,
i try to open an office file,
i get the error (see attached); word failed to start correctly last time...starting word in safe mode......" if i press "YES" start in safe mode - nothing happen.

i tried to repair office 2013 - didn't work.

i open word application, i get: pls wait until windows configures Microsoft office professional plus 2013.....
than: Microsoft setup bootstrupper has stopped working

after a while word application opens anyway and when i open a word file from inside the app it WORKS.

i dont want to remove and re-install office, only as my last option

thank you for any help

Well, You may have to perform a manual uninstall of Ofiice 2013 (time consuming and frustrating, yes) and reinstall.
