Office will not load: Only runs under master administrator account

  • 1. Problems Trying to Reinstall Office
    I am having problems with my Office suite and first tried to use the Detect and Repair feature and then tried to reinstall the program. Both times I get the error message "The installation source for this product is not available. Verify that the source eixts and that you can access it." I've tried removing the Windows Installer registry settings using the Windows CleanUp utility. This did not help. I'm wondering if my Windows Installer is corrupted? If so, do I need to reinstall SP2? And, if I need to reinstall SP2 do I need to remove it before doing so? I am the only user of this system and have administrator rights. Can anyone suggest other approaches? Thank you in advance.

  • 3. how do I install office Standard Edition 2003?
    Hi, #I have recently purchased a new laptop with Windows XP. I was advised that I could just purchase an upgrade of software because the laptop came with XP and I therefore purchased Microsoft Office Standard Edition 2003. When I try to install the CD it tells me that it could not find a version of Microsoft 1997, 2000 or XP. How can this be? Can anyone help me get past this csreen and install my software?

  • 5. Microsoft Office Communicating on Port 37926???
    Ever since I installed my D-Link Bluetooth adapter, whenever I start a Microsoft Office application, my firewall pops up with an alert that there is communication on Port 37926 with UDP. The remote address listed is (which is, of course, the local IP of my computer). 37926 is supposed to be in the range of unused ports. I've been searching the web all day on this, including D-Link's limited tech support website. I see other people with the same question, but no solid answers about UDP:37926 except that the port is used by something called "IP Bus" (which seems to be unrelated), and it might be used by Windows Messaging. (I'm using Windows98SE and no instant messaging software of any kind is installed). D-Link has been less than helpful - as a matter of fact, I get the impression from talking to their (uninformed) tech support that their Bluetooth software is snooping on my computer, using my local computer as a proxy - the computer looks like it's talking to itself, when it's not (sneaky, sneaky!). I even get this message when the Bluetooth USB dongle is removed, which makes me very suspicious. (Oh, D-Link tried to blame Microsoft. Whenever a vendor tries to blame Microsoft, it's a sure bet it's the vendor's fault) Can anyone shed some light on this? Is UDP:37926 used by Microsoft for something or other? Can anyone PLEASE help? Does office use UDP:37926 and what for? Thanks, Bill.

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?

not putting them up anymore?

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?
