    Windows 10 V 1709 64 bit
       14 Dec 2017 #11

    After updating about 10 PC.s from Win 10 1703 to 1709 all with MS office enterprise 2007 installed - i can report 2 cases where either Word or Excel stopped with error messages and reocurring configuration attempts.
    Only deinstallation and reinstallation of office 2007 resolved the problem.
    Office Repair did not help.
    SInce then, all installtions of office 2007 work fine.... over a month now. Probably only until the next version upgrade of Windows?.
    What determines if office 2007 survives the 1709 upgrade is not clear to me. Probably the two affected PC.s where moved from Windows 7 to Win 10 originally, but this is only one of many possible reasons. Anyway: deinstallation and Reinstallation of office 2007 solved it- plus all office updates should reinstall automatically .

    Perhaps this similar thread will help you - https://www.tenforums.com/software-apps/95834-fall-creators-update-butchered-ms-office-2007-a-new-post.html This user is now able to use Office 2007 despite having updated to Windows 10 Ver 1709 [FCU].

    I'm also sticking with Office 2007 despite the end of security updates on 10th October 2017. I'm updating to Ver 1709 in the next couple of weeks.

    @denis I was quite active in the thread you linked to and eventually I gave up and bought Office 2016 to "solve" my problem. Only mentioning it here to "close the loop" as it were. I spent far too many hours banging my head against a brick wall and it's so lovely to be able to stop!

    I have one that was upgraded from W7 to W10 and Office 2007 survived intact, even in 1709.

    VBF -

    Understood. Pity you had to fork out money to solve the problem.

    I have now updated two computers to Ver 1709 and they are both fine with their Office 2007's.

    I am very glad to be able to avoid Office 2016. I used its Preview version & then a trial version. Both Outlook & Access had some very annoying characteristics.

    Strange it works for some and not others

    I’ve been using Office 2007 with no problems updating or anything else

    But I’m on the insiders build 16299 if that makes a difference

    @denisGood thoughts - thanks. Actually, having set it the way I like it O2016 is (IMO) great! . And at £8 for a "Click to run" version, is not too much dosh!
