Did the following Windows 7 Updates today (Oct 10, 2018).
After the updates were successfully installed, and the computer rebooted, I could not open Office 2013 Excel, Word or PowerPoint. I could however open Office 2013 Publisher and Access.
I would get the message: "The operating system is not presently configured to run this application."
And sometimes depending on how I tried to open the application, would also get the message: "There was a problem sending the command to the program."
I tried a full "Repair" of Office 2013 via the on-line method but that did not fix any of the issues. Still can't open some of the Office 2013 applications and get the same error messages.
Everything was working perfectly on my Windows 7 machine until these updates were installed. Was one of these updates the culprit? If so, will Microsoft push out a fix, or how should I handle this problem?
