Hi Lindi,

Yes, I'm still suffering the MS Office 2010 plug-in problem.... unable to use Office Web-Apps documents to open MS Word for editing because the Office Word Apps are unable to find the MSO plug-in!

Hi there and welcome

Can you use Internet Explorer (you specified Firefox) and attempt to edit.

Let me know please if you continue to have difficulties

Hi! Thanks for your reply.

Error response when I use IE8 (64bit) v8.0.7601.17514:

"We are unable to detect Microsoft Word on your computer."

....I hasten to add that the MSWord plug-in failure I'm experiencing is new - and I have been able to open MSWord from Office2010 perfectly well in the past....

Any thoughts?
