Anyone here running Microsoft Office 2010?

Do your applications still work?

Haven't gone deeper into Office yet, but here is a link that discusses the matter.

My particular problem had an easy fix, go into Programs and "Repair" Microsoft Office, but I've now turned off Automatic Updates and won't be turning it on again in a hurry!

It's also affecting my Office 2007. Install the patches and it just keeps coming back at you wanting to install again (or maybe it's just not installing at all each time)

You might be able to get some help here.

See if you can't just run a repair. (Read the 6th post down on this 4th page, from John D)

Any idea where to find that "repair" function in XP?

Let me preface my response by saying that the Repair function worked for me, but my only problem was that Word wasn't working and was asking for a Product Key - I had no issue with a Patch reinstalling or whatever your problem seems to be. And my problem was on my laptop, which runs Windows 7.

So I *assume* Repair will work the same way on XP, but I make no guarantees!

You can join that Microsoft Office Help forum and ask your question there and maybe they can confirm that you need to do a Repair.

HOW TO DO REPAIR IN XP

Go to your Control Panel
Select Add or Remove Programs
It will populate a list of all the programs on your computer
Click on Microsoft Office - or failing that whichever Microsoft program isn't working.
Two buttons should come up in the right hand lower corner of the grey box that highlights your selection: one that says CHANGE and one that says REMOVE
Click on the one that says CHANGE
The next popup should give you the option to REPAIR it.

My install of 32 bit Office 2010 on 32 bit Windows 7 on my laptop seems to be working fine. However I had the three patches for Office 2007 also not installing properly and recurring. The patches, (KB2760411, KB2760583 and KB2760588) seem to relate to the document viewer versions of the Office 2007 programs, not the full Office 2007 programs. I've since removed those three and am waiting on MS to figure this out and fix it.

Microsoft appear to have 'fixed' some of the issues:

Pretty much of a debacle. I'm keeping my "automatic updating" turned off! I don't need no stinking patches.
