  • Office 2007 Ultimate applications will no longer run on my Vista machine.  When attempting to launch any of the applications--e.g. Outlook, Word, or Excel--the error message in the subject is displayed.  I am running as administrator, so it is not a permissions issue.  I created a new administrator account to make sure my other account was not corrupted.  I have now uninstalled and reinstalled Office without success.

    This is a newer 64-bit moderately high-end laptop that has Office has been running fine on for about two months.

    Your suggestions will be appreciated.

  • Did you ever get your question answered.... I am having the same problem.

  • I have a similar issue.
    Office 2007 works without problems when UAC is turned off.
    However, turning UAC on causes Office 2007 to start an install process and when completed comes up with the following message:
    "Microsoft xxxx (any of Office 2007 applications) has not been installed for current user. Please run setup to install the application".
    Clicking OK exits any of the Office 2007 applications. 
    Turning UAC off again and restarting Vista allows access to all Office 2007 applications. 

    I have not seen any reference to this issue other than confusing notes regarding network applications, where it appears this is also an issue. 

    If anyone has (or had) a similar problem I would like to hear from you.

    Cheers,
    Michael

    Did somebody has a solution for this problem?

    I've tried all workarounds I've found on the net, none worked for me...

    I bet it is integrity level problem with one or several keys of MS Office, but I can't find which ones...

  • I have the same issue, do anyone have the solution for it... i have been using ms office for couple of months... that was working fine... but now it is generating an error whenever i initiate any application of ms office 2007.

  • I have the same problem.   I have tried disabling UAC, changing permissions in registry, uninstalling and reinstalling, deleting MSO.dll and repairing MS Office.  Nothing works.  I have no idea what the problem is.  This started when I used Windows update or when I changed permissions on some files for greater access.  I hope someone finds the answer.

  • I have the same problem. The only way I cna run office 2007 ultimate on my Vista 64bit laptop is to disable UAC. I don't like to do this but I cannot come up with a solution and my college student needs office more than he needs UAC. When is Microsoft going to fix this or announce that they recognize the problem and they are working on it?

  • I'm getting the same error message with the following setup: Windows 7, Office 2007, all the latest Windows & Office updates.

    It was working fine until mid day yesterday.  Disabling UAC works, but is not acceptable.

    I did install iTunes 9 yesterday (and had issues with that install).  Not sure if the issues are related, but I thought I'd throw it out there just incase.

    Also, FYI: The link by Ozzie99 does not work for Windows 7.

  • I also got the same today in the evening. But I used this method and proved useful in solving this problem.

    Steps I took:

    1)Go to the directory: %PROGRAMDATA%\Microsoft\Office\Data
    2)Delete all files in the directory.
    3)Run any office application.
    This only works on Vista and 7

    For XP
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\OFFICE\DATA
    Delete all files in the directory.
    Run any office application.

    Note: You may need to validate office again.
    Note: For Office 2000/2003, the files are named with OPA11, meaning Office Version 11.
    Note: For Office 2007, the files are named with OPA12, meaning Office Version 12

  • Solution: Got to internet. And find a file mso.dll to replace your old one. If you using office 2007 look for office12/mso.dll file if ather version chen in you computer, when you downloaded a new one replace it in programfiles/commonfiles/microsoftshared/office12

  • After all of the above failed for me.  I tried to uninstall Office 2007 from my Win7 64 bit machine.  It through an error message stating that it didn't have access to 'UNKNOWN\Components\[Long ID]\[RandomID]. I opened Regedit as an administrator, tracked down the actual location which was HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\UserData\S-1-5-18\Components\[Long ID]. When I expanded the subkeys and tried to fix the permissions, I got another error message that there was an error and it didn't want me to do that.

    Symptoms

    1. All Office 2007 applications would open, even begin to operate, but then throw "Application has not been installed for the current user"
    2. This occurred for all users on the machine.
    3. Choosing to run the office applications as an administrator provided a workaround.
    4. Repair and Uninstall failed to complete and threw errors.
    5. Individual component uninstall was successful, but reinstall of component didn't help.
    6. On investigating the error message thrown from Office 2007 uninstall, discovered group of subkeys that were corrupted.

    Fix: I went up to Components and claimed ownership of all the subkeys.

    1. Right Click on Components, select permissions
    2. Click Advanced Permissions
    3. Select the Owners Tab at the top.
    4. Select your user name as owner
    5. Select the check box Replace owner on subcontainers and objects
    6. Click Okay, give it a minute, it has a lot of work to do.
    7. It may throw another error saying that it can't do that with everything.  Ignore it.
    8. Go back to advanced permissions, grant the administrators group full control, and choose "Replace all child object permissions", click okay.
    9. You SHOULD be in business now.  You can verify this by going back to the group of registry keys that previously told you to go jump in a lake.  You should now be able to select the individual keys and examine permissions.
    10. Check of Fix, go back to Office Applications and uncheck 'Run as Administrator'.
    11. Open Application.  Should run fine now.

  • We had success with brandongwh's suggestion to delete the files in DATA.  In our situation, we had recently rebuilt our clients from captured images, but the same images worked fine if not put on the domain.  We think these files were cache'd somehow (maybe something from the DC or roaming profiles?).  Blowing them away (had to use a local admin login) allowed the app to launch under regular user.  It did the office configuration on the 1st run and every APP was good after that.

  • Here is a simple step-by-step solution if you are getting the following message:

    "Microsoft Word has not been installed for the current user. Please run setup to install the application"

    So, the solution is quite simple. There is no need for re-installation.

    1.Make sure you have service pack 2 installed. Find the “my computer” icon and right click on it, then click properties. In the top few lines you will see if you have service pack 2 installed. If not, go to your start menu and click “windows update”.

    2.Next we need to replace mso.dll, firstly, you can download the file from this site http://www.mediafire.com/?njgzby01vzv. Once it is downloaded you need to un-zip it. Hopefully you should have some kind of program for this. If not, Google search jzip and install the jzip programe.

    3.When you unzip (or extract) mso.dll, be sure to put it somewhere you will remember. Personally I just extracted it to the desktop. If you have done it correctly the file “mso.dll” will be on your desktop.

    4.So we’re nearly there! We need to find out what bit operation system you are running. This can be done by again right clicking on the “my computer” icon, click properties. Halfway down the page it will say either “32 bit operating system” or “64 bit system”. If you are running a 32 bit operating system go to step 5. If you are running a 64 bit operating system go to step 6.

    5.If you’re reading this you have 32 bit operating system. If you’re still confused on how to find this information you can also find it under control panel. Click start- settings- control panel- system and maintenance – system.

    Open this folder: c:\programfiles\commonfiles\microsoftshared\office12. Now click and drag the mso.dll file in which you just downloaded to this folder. (Make sure it is the file which you extracted/unzipped) A message will appear asking “do you want to replace this file”. Click yes and enjoy your working word, excel, power point etc.

    6. If you’re reading this you have 64 bit operating system. If you’re still confused on how to find this information you can also find it under control panel. Click start- settings- control panel- system and maintenance – system.

    Open this folder: c:\programfiles(x86)\commonfiles\microsoftshared\office12

    Now click and drag the mso.dll file in which you just downloaded to this folder. (Make sure it is the file which you extracted/unzipped) A message will appear asking “do you want to replace this file”. Click yes and enjoy your working word, excel, power point etc.

  • Here's another way that works.

    Some of the Microsoft files get corrupt permissions during GP security template application during installs and here is the solution to fix it.

    Please follow the directions below and it will all be good again in no time.

    1. Logon to system as local administrator
    2. Open My computer and change the view (under tools > Folder Options > View ) to show hidden files and folders.
    3. Now change directory to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Office\Data
    4. Delete the files OPA12.dat & OPA12.bak  (in some computers you may see OPA11 instead of OPA12. That is okay delete whatever 11 or 12 that you see there)
    5. Restart the Word Program.
    6. It will install and recreate those files (which got corrupted) again.
    7. At the end please don’t forget to change the View of the files to HIDE the hidden files and folder on step 2.
