MS Office Configuration

  kat64 22:07 17 Aug 2010

Hi, I have Windows 7 pro. and i have installed MS Office enterprise 2007 but every time I click on a file to open in word or excel etc I get the install screen 'Configuration Process'. I cancel this by clicking the red x in top corner and i get a small window asking if i am sure I want to cancel the Installation. I click yes and its only then that the file I want will open and the program works fine.
Can anyone explain how to stop this installation screen from appearing.
Kind Regards.

OR you could try this -

Run the following commands (by pressing the Windows Key+R or typing it into the
Start/Run command box. Use the line with Office\11.0 if you have Office
2003 installed and Office\12.0 if you have Office 2007 installed. You can
use both if you have both installed :

reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Word\Options /v NoReReg /t

reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Word\Options /v NoReReg /t

That is it. Office 2007 might want to have one more spin round the block
with it's configuration

It sounds that older version of Office installed on your pc. uninstall the old one.
