MS Office Enterprise 2007 keeps Configuring in 64-bit Windows 7 Professional
Each time I launch an MS Office Enterprise 2007 application (such as Word or Excel) MS Office "Configures" itself for 2-3 minutes before allowing the app to open. In a possibly related issue, MS Outlook refuses to allow me to set-up ANY e-mail accounts. I am running a 64-bit version of Windows 7, and have run ALL Updates for Windows, and ran the Service Pack 2 for MS Office 2007.
Hi rob-dog, cannot say anything other than have you tried a uninstall re-install of office?
I only suggest this as a similar thing happened with a 2003 version of office i once installed and even though the installation went without any apparent hiccups, the same, or similar, problem reared its ugly head.
Ok, found this thread which seems to have many solutions ( albeit for vista, but still worth a try :-) ) http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/office2007deploymentcompatibility/thread/7e14f498-485c-40c5-b522-d36d9b0c5697/
Good luck and let us know how you get on.
