Office will not load: Only runs under master administrator account

  • 1. Installing equation editor
    I have a legal OEM copy of Office XP Professional, and need to install Equation Editor. I do not have the CD, and Dell, from whom I purchased the computer over two years, will not assist. I do not understand why this feature was omitted at installation. How can I get this feature without without buying Office again?
  • 2. "Missing" CAB file ?
    New Dell laptop computer, running XP Pro, 2003 Office Small Business Suite. I changed from Outlook to Outlook Express (for simpler home use) and began getting message upon every boot up: "Managed MAPI catastrophic Failure--unknown error". I changed back to Outlook, but error message continues. Attempting to reinstall Office suite results in "cannot install due to missing ZF561407.CAB file". Now I caanot use Excel because of same "missing" CAB file. Cannot find any references to location of this file which I assume is critical to proble resolution. Any ideas?? thanks.
  • 3. Win95 / Office 200 installer message
    Hi, I have Win95b, and am trying to re-install Office 2000, but get this message: "Windows Installer The configuration data for this product is corrupt. Contact your support personnel. I think this is a Win installer/registry problem, the CD looks okay, I can browse it,etc. I have tried earlier versions of the Windows installer, same message though. Although Office 2000 was on this computer sometime ago, there is nothing anywhere to uninstall the product, so there may be 'remnants' of Office 2000 in the registry ?? I did try the Windows installer cleanup utility, Office 2000 is not showing, and if I try to remove other programs, it says, "... file not found" Any clues ? Peter

Office will not load: Only runs under master administrator account

Postby ZG11cmZpbg » Wed, 05 Jul 2006 22:21:01 GMT

I have installed Office 2007 Beta 2 and have been running it without problem 
for a while. Suddenly trying to load any office application results in a 
message saying "Microsoft Office <program name> has not been installed for 
the current user. Please run setup to install this application".

The account I am using is an administrator account, but the only account 
office will run succesfully on is the master administrator account. I have 
tried uninstalling the beta and removing all registry/local settings files 
several times, reinstalling from both the master administrator account and 
the one I use, ensuring it is set to install for all users. I have also tried 
reinstalling Office 2003, but the same error still occurs.

I have tried all of the possible fixes I can find on google/Microsoft KB but 
none of them work. Any help would be appreciated!

1.Standard account can not run exe's when "run as administrator" is selected

I am trying to start a new method of using my computer and am not going
to run my profile as an Admin account.  I am used to Linux and having to
use SU or SUDO, so this should not be much different.

I am running into the same problem that pushed me away from this model
before.  I did a fresh install of a laptop, ran all Vista Home Premium
updates, created a standard account, logged into the standard account,
selected an exe on my C:, right clicked and selected "Run as
Administrator" and I get this message *"Windows can not access the
specified device, path, or file.  You may not have the appropriate
permissions to access the item."*

This error seems familiar as I tried this before and had the same
problem.  This pushed me into using an account that had elevated Admin
privileges all the time (bad idea for someone who uses the internet and
installs a lot of programs). 

What is the deal and how can I fix it?

3.Administrator Account Runs Incredibly Slowly

4.Regular Run As... option (not Run As Administrator)

I have Vista Business.  When I shift+Righ Click an item, I can see the Run 
As... option, but when I click on it, UAC asks for my consent, but I do not 
get the prompt to enter the user credentials to actually Run the program as.  
("Run As..." is different from "Run As Administrator").  I need to run some 
things not just as a local machine administrator rights, but as a totally 
different user (for instance if I had to run certain programs as a different 
AD account).

How can I get back the regular Run As... command back so that it will prompt 
me what account to use?
