I am running Office 2016 Professional Plus (16.0.633.2036) on Windows 10 Pro (1511 Os Build 10586.36).
If I have, for example, Word already open I can select a Word file (either in Doc format or DocX) via file Open command and it will open with no error message. Like wise if I double click on a Word File (situated on my desktop) the file will open with no error message.
If, however I try to open a file located anywhere else on my C: drive or on the second internal drive I: I receive the message:
When I click 'close the program' it closes the error message but the document opens in Word.
The same message appears using Excel; same scenario.
I have tried repairing Office, both off-line & on-line; but the error is constant.
Is there any way to resolve this error or if I wish to open any document/excel file will I have to ensure that the program is open first?
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
