New Win Pro Install, now MS Office 2013 applications won't open

mlcktmguy used Ask the Experts™
This morning I updated a laptop in the office to Win 10 Pro opting to keep all of my apps and data.

I've had a 32bit version of Office Professional 2013 installed on this machine for years.  After the conversion to Win 10 Pro this morning none of my Office 2013 products will open.

They all have the same behavour when trying to open.  The application loads, the open splash screen (for example the blue 'Word' screen) will appear and the application will quickly close with no error message or intervention on my part.

I had another issue on this machine and one EE responder warned me warned me that it might be caused by using the administrator account.  If that's the issue how can I resolve it.  I've only ever had one user set up on the office machines since I am a solo developer.

How can I resolve this issue.
