    This is carried over from another thread. I'm still unable to run Office 2004<br> <br> 1. Running OSX 10.3.9<br> 2. Entourage runs ok. None of the other applics will open an I get an error message<br> 3. Opening from a file gives me unexpected error code 10660<br> 4. Have deleted all office prefs from Preferences<br> 5. Have reinstalled Office several times using Office Ass and rebooted several times<br> 6. Have installed all updates<br> 7. Have Archived and Installed. Re installed Office and updates. No difference.<br> 8. Run in safe mode. No difference.<br> 9. I have logged off and am running the G5 in default mode. Don't know how to restore my custom mode.<br> <br> I am confused about whether I need to open another account or become another user and do retests to solve this.<br> <br> Have used the entourage mactopia problem page to help.

  • 2. error message in microsoft programs
    Today when I tried to open powerpoint an error message popped up saying:<br> <br> The application powerpoint could not be launched because of<br> a shared library error: <microsoft powerpoint><apple; carbon; multimedia><CFMPriv_Quicktime><br> <br> I get this same message whenever I attempt to open word, and excel. Can anyone help me with this? Also, I don't know if this will matter but I'm still using the trial version

    I am currently running Office 2004 10.1.9 and want to install all missing updates. Which one do I install next and where can I find it?<br> <br> Thanks!
  • 4. Transfer to New Computer
    I have a new MacBook and just installed Office Mac Home & Student Edition; however, I had to install Office twice on this computer because of problems encountered. Have I just used up two of my three instillation privileges? On the first try I could not register because my PID was stated as invalid. On the second try I was not asked about the PID or the Product Key.<br> <br> After all this the computer is now going to be replaced by Apple because of hardware problems. What do I have to do load Office on the new computer so as not to loose another of my three instillation privileges?
  • 5. In Test Account login, how get 2008 to see current identity? Test Acct vs. Safe Boot?
    1. If I log into the Test Account I created in the System folder and then launch Entourage, the setup assistant wants to import an Office 2004 identity rather than give me an option to use the current identity created with Office 2008. Your counsel, please? 2. If there are no problems in running Office 2008 component applications when in Safe Boot startup mode, how would re-booting into Normal startup mode and logging into Test Account help in isolating/diagnosing problem causes? Respectfully, Norm

I have a Mac G5. Mac OS X 10.4.10.  I am receiving documents that are
attached to emails that were created using Word 2007.  The documents
have the extension ".doc"

I am running Office for Mac and the Word program is Version 11.3.5.

Any advice?

If the documents have the extension .doc, you should be able to open 
them. Files with extension .docx (note the x) would require you to 
download the beta converter.  Can you confirm you didn't misread or 
mistype and they are really .doc?  (no x)

Let's eliminate some common issues:
--try both double-clicking the doc and using File | Open from within Word
--if you are using Entourage, check your Tools | Accounts [AccountName] 
Options settings and make sure that you don't have emails over a certain 
size set to only partially download. If you do, the doc won't open 
because it isn't all the way there.

further to what Daiya has said. When you check that the messages are
not partly left on the server (Daiya second note) open your message
and save the file to any place (do not click on the attached file to
open, save it). Start word and see if you have checked in Preference
attachment by word - either drag and drop your document on the W icon,
or open word and do file>open. You might be asked by now about
conversion of your document (that happens if you check the confirm
conversion option and the file you want to open is not native Word
Let us know, how you did,
Good luck

1.Cannot open Word 2007 doc even with Compatibility Pack installed

I have been sent a Word 2007 document by e-mail (.docx) and as I am running 
Word 2003, it won't let me open it. I went onto the Microsoft website and 
downloaded the 2007 Compatibility Pack and installed it, but still can't get 
the document to open.

When I try to open the doc, it comes up with the following message: This is 
a pre-release version of the Compatibility Pack and can open pre-release 
Office 2007 files only. Do you want to check for a newer version of the 
Compatibility Pack?

If I click on Yes, it takes me to the webpage where I downloaded the pack in 
the first place. According to the webpage it *IS* the current version and not 
the beta or anything (I have downloaded it again and re-installed it just to 
be sure), so I don't know where to go from here.

Anyone got any ideas?
