I don't understand this fix at all. I've even gone so far as to 1) repair word or 2) reinstall word.
That fixes it -- temporarily. It then tells me to reboot which I do, and it works, for a while.
But then the error comes back. One Office/word is working again, AFTER I've done a repair, how do I make it so these changes "stick" and the problem doesn't come back.
These proposed solutions are very complicated to a lay person. Please describe in plain english what other steps I should take -- this has been a problem for almost 2 years now and it's making me crazy to have to "repair" word every time before using it.
not sure. i will reread the freakin thread as it did helpme. if i find anything useful i'll repost it
Try these things. I can't remember which one soleved it for me but one did.
I faced this problem when my install of Microsoft Office 2010 Pro Plus VL from work. I had moved Internet files to solid state internal memory drive. Never do this if running office. I do not know why but I moved them back and office liked itself again.
Below are the steps I took to fix my issues. Microsoft in embedding files from Internet explorer and Office together for some reasons. I did the steps above to delete environment variables. No luck but Solution is below. Enjoy
1.Make sure you are the administrator and all files and folders are not hidden.
2.Open Internet explorer
3.Click Tools and click on Internet Options
4.On browsing history – Click Settings
5.Click Move Folder
6.Now here is where it counts
7.Click Drive C:
9.Click Your Name if you are the admin. Do not choose admistrator
10.Click AppData (will be in grey font)
14.Click Temporary Internet Files
15.Now save all documents and things
16.Click Ok to everything and your system will logoff (Don’t worry that is normal)
Actually the "answer" you marked in this case isn't correct. The error occurs because you have the "preview pane" enabled, and when you click on the Word document to upload, it attempts to preview the file from within Internet Explorer. You should disable
the preview pane by clicking the "hide preview pane" button and trying again.
Update: If preview pane is automatically appearing each time you are browsing for a file, follow these steps:
When you are inside Internet Explorer, ready to upload a file and you are browsing for it, click the "organize" menu at the top left, then layout -> and uncheck "preview pane"
IMPORTANT: While doing this step, you also have to find the preview pane switcher button at the top right of the browser window (the icon looks like 3 rectangles put together) and also disable preview pane there. Restart IE and test again
to make sure the preview pane is not showing when you are browsing to find your attachment.
