    Mac Office

    Has anyone had problems within school, recently with office trying to open and then shutting down imediately? This is happening only with some users. Even if I delete the user off the server including the home directory and re- create the account it refuses to work. I have checked the permissions etc and all seems ok
    Office version 2004 for Mac and a variety of OS versions.
    All help welcome

    Does it happen for all users on the same machine? I've had this after an update, Office decided it wanst a valid (paid for) version and refused to run, had to re-enter serial key to get it running.

    No. the problem relates to how office works on a Mac, not a particular problem relating to how an office app has a problem or how to aceive an outcome using Office for Mac. It's in the right place.

    Try to follow instruction below. It did work for us:
    1. When user who experiences those problems is logged in, quit any "Office" applications
    2. Go to that user Library/Preferences folder
    3. Delete Microsoft folder
    4. delete all com.microsoft.* files
    5. Open office application again. Hopefully it should work now without quitting.
