I updated my Dell laptop, window 10, to the fall creative update (version 1709, build 16299.19) last night. I have (had) Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2016 on my laptop.
After, the Office 2016 *programs* (not just shortcuts) are gone. I can double click on Word files (.docx) or other Office files in file explorer, and no luck. In the apps program in control panel, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc., do not appear.
I had Office 2016 Prof. Plus version 16.0.8528.2147.
I tried running system restore, only to find that the only restore point was automatically created by Windows Update *after* it did the 1709 update. Useless.
Very frustrated. How could this happen? Absolutely no office productivity today (even email) on my business laptop today. Worst experience with Updates ever.
