Office won't open

I just had an automatic update of my computer's Windows but now I can't get any of my Microsoft Office apps to open.
Hi rmgil2004

Try repairing your Office installation, if that does not work for you, then you should re-install Office:

Follow these steps to perform a full repair of your Office installation . . .

Open Control Panel - Programs and Features
Click Microsoft Office in the list of installed applications
At the top, click 'Change'
On the resulting dialog, click 'Repair' - choose the Online Repair, it is a comprehensive fix

That should fix any issues with your Office Installation . . .

Go to and if you're not already signed in, select Sign in

From there you should be able to find your Office 2016 licence, select that and choose Install . . .
