Microsort has encountered an error and must shut down. No specific number. Have "sent" details.

Microsoft Office Technician: Richard, Software Specialist replied 4 years ago
Thanks Jane

Can you do the following please

Quit all programs.

On the Go menu, click Home > Library. If you have OS X 10.7 (Lion) or above, click Go, hold down the OPTION key and choose Library.

Open the Preferences folder and drag com.microsoft.Word.plist to the desktop. If you can't find the file, continue to the next step.

Now, open the Microsoft folder (in Preferences), and drag com.microsoft.Word.prefs.plist to the desktop.

Note If you have Service Pack 2 installed, open Application Support > Microsoft instead of Preferences > Microsoft.

Then try to open Word.

Let me know the results please

Followed instructions but with mixed/limited results. Opening from desk top gives a black word document and opening from dashboard or Document gives same message as before.

Microsoft Office Technician: Richard, Software Specialist replied 4 years ago
ok, then we need to reinstall Office.

Can you follow the instructions here please to uninstall Office from the computer

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2500821

Once done, restart the computer and install Office again.

Office was installed at the store when I bought the computter. I do not have disks


 

Microsoft Office Technician: Richard, Software Specialist replied 4 years ago
ok.. it is only legal if you have the disks Jane, so that were not meant to do this.

Are you 100% sure you did not get a disk as it is very rare for a company to do this.

I have Office 2000for Small business and have never knowingly loaded illegally but when I bought MAC at Best Buy they gave me IWork which I have. They also misspelled my name on the ID and gave a wrong birthday on the set up. Anything is possible. Any other ideas?

Microsoft Office Technician: Richard, Software Specialist replied 4 years ago
We need to reinstall it,

I would request the Office disk as if you purchased office then you are entitled to it.

Else you need to purchase and install Office from here Jane

http://www.microsoft.com/mac/office-2011-digital-download

But a reinstall is necessary.

I hope THERE IS NO CHARGE FOR THIS CALL> I know enough to reinstall if possible. I am not so sure that is the problem. Four years ago I was a computer innocent and obviously was taken. DID the information from additional information give a clue to the problem?

Microsoft Office Technician: Richard, Software Specialist replied 4 years ago
There is a charge, for this service, and we have gone through all the causes for this problem.

If you dont want to compensate me for my time, that is your choice as the customer.

Customer reply replied 4 years ago

I feel compensation is not warentted as I still have no answer.

Microsoft Office Technician: Richard, Software Specialist replied 4 years ago
You have an answer, you need to perform a reinstall, your issue is you do not have the disk.

But I am not going into discussion, as I mentioned, you choose to not pay for your answer.
