Office Update changed client virtualization DD launcher settings - excel and word automatically opens "starter" RRS feed

  • Question

  • I woke up to an ugly updated world yesterday. The latest Windows update changed the DD launcher settings on my laptop, and sice then, all my excel ( MS Office 2010 ) files do, is open in "Excel Starter 2010" or  " "Word Starter 2010".  Does anyone know how to fix this?

  • Hi,


    Could you find out the update installed last yesterday? (Vista/Win7 - Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Windows Update\View update history)
    Did you try repairing the office?
    Try to Click on Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove programs /Programs and Features > Highlight the Office 2010 > Click on Change > Choose Repair and verify the results.
    If issue persists, use this Microsoft Fixit tool to uninstall the Office 2010 and re-install it: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301

    In addition, running a System Restore is an easy way to fix the issue.
