    Office 2007 in constant Configuration Progress after Fall CU Update


    I updated my Win 10 Pro 64bit OS to the Fall CU last week. Now, every time I try to open Word, Excel, etc I get the MS Office Home & Student 2007 Configuration Progress screen. Not once but every time. If I cancel the screen, Word of Excel eventually come up.

    Is there something I need to do in Office to get this to stop or is something not right with the Fall CU update?

    Thanks.

    Since installation of Office is quite heavily married to the Windows system, I suspect you need a newer version of Office. Another issue could be that some registry or folder permissions are wrong and Office can not complete it's reconfiguration.

    You could try a repair install of Office and see if it helps.

    I am not sure if Office 2007 is still supported.

    Jose, you're right. Tried to run a diagnostic on Office and got the pop-up that Office 2007 has been retired.

    Thanks.

    Hi,
    I'm still getting 2007 updates in 10 I have the small business version not the home and student though
    But I'm not on the fall update yet or win-10 so I'll have to see about the functionality later tonight.

    As far as I'm aware of it's in prior versions of windows office 2007 is not supported anymore win-7/ win-8-8.1.
    It could apply to win-10 too.
    Possibly the updates mentioned are killing it :)

    It will still work but you will not get any more updates for it. If you do go on The FCU you will lose it.

    If you can afford it, start an Office365 Home Premium subscription. This way your Office will always stay up to date, will be fully compatible with latest Windows 10 and as a bonus you get 1TB of OneDrive storage. OneDrive works really well now on Fall Creators Update since they implemented Files On Demand feature, which means that you see all your OneDrive files on your local computer, in File Explorer, but only files you actually need or use need to take up space on your Hard Drive. Once you don't need a local copy of the file, you can change it's status to online only and you save a few byte or megabyte. :)

    I highly recommend!

    Hi,
    That will be a problem :)
    Might try running it in compatibility mode.

    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.

    I have updated Windows 10 Pro 1703 (x86) with Office 2007 installed to Fall Creators Update 1709. Office 2007 still worked after the upgrade with no issues. Perhaps it helped that I had already got the latest Office update before the upgrade?
