Microsoft Office 2010 on an XP OS

I've been using  Office 2010 on an XP platform for several years and suddenly receive the following:

"The procedure entry point GetDateFormatEx could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll"

Office was loaded on my machine when I received it so I do not have the registration key.

My XP machine is too old to upgrade to a newer OS.

Can anyone give some insight?


How and where do you find the update. I can no longer open any Office programs. I just keep getting the above message(The procedure entry point.......). I put in the original Office CD and selected repair (not install) but it did not correct the problem.

Thanks, Jay

-Open 'Add or Remove programs' from Control Panel

-Check the show updates on the top of window

-Find Office 2010 in the list and find the KB4461522 and KB4462157 updates from its update and remove them.

-Restart the windows.
