Office 2010

  STREETWORK 11:03 04 Feb 2011

trying to sort out problems with Office 2010 Professional Plus (HUD).

1. Outlook 2010 cannot be set as default email (the program is not listed in the defaults in control panel)
2. Trying to reinstall office from scratch and it reports the setup files us-en ( cannot be found and browse for the files required. But I cannot find them.
3. When opening files in any office applications is reports that there is a probelm with macro's. Eventually the file will open.

Any help appreciated...

Have you run "Office Diagnostics" I use 2007 but I think it is the same in 2010

Can you tell me how to run the diagnostics please. I'm a bit dim and grey...

Open Outlook> Go to Help on the toolbar, and click on Office Diagnostics. Have your Office Disk ready it will probably ask for it.

Don't think it is the same in Office 2010. Think it has to be done through the control panel uninstall/repair.

Or you can go to Start> All Programs> Microsoft Office> Office Tools> Office Diagnostics

Thanks, I wasn't sure. As I said I use 2007.

Please do as Woolwell suggests

From the MS site listing the changes in Office 2010:

"Office Diagnostics, also known as Customer Watson, is removed for all Office 2010 applications. Because of shifting resources, the focus must be on analysis and reporting features that have been proven beneficial for other teams. Users must now run the repair utility from the Control Panel."

Like you I'm still with 2007 and will remain so as the upgrade version is no longer available.

In the end I had to uninstall and then reinstall Office 2010. solved...

STREETWORK, Outlook problem. Open Outlook and click on the File tab, under Options ensure Make Outlook the default program for E-mail, Contacts and Calendar is ticked.
