  • 1. How do I turn of VS and Office integration??
    I've been using Office 2003 for over a year with no problems (other than my lack of knowledge). I recently installed Visual Studio 2005 on the same machine, and now I have problems. I must have taken some default that wants to integrate Office and VS, because every time I start Word or Excel, I get a box saying "Preparing to install" followed by a Visual Studio box requesting my CD. I cancelled out of this the first couple of times. Then I got tired of it so I loaded the CD. The dang thing went through several "installing" messages for about 15 minutes, until I finally gave up and cancelled it. I still get the same messages every time I start an Office app. I can cancel out of them, but it's very annoying. Can anyone tell me of an option I can set or unset, in Office or Visual Studio, that will make it stop trying to do whatever it's trying to do? Thank you.
  • 2. I am unable to do a "Save As" in Word, Excel, or PowerPoint. Why?
