    Error opening MS Word


    I've just upgraded from W7to W10 today and have done some tweaks to the system regarding all those privacy issues. Now I've installed Ms Office and when wanting to open Word, I was greeted with this

    error screen.
    Why is that? How should I configure my system? This error is just usless. It doesn't tell me anything.

    It's usually critical to know exactly which version of programs are involved and which version of the OS is installed. With Office there's a suite version such as Office 2010 and each application inside the suite have a version number such as Word 14 for Office 2010. Then for each version of the programs there is 32-bit or 64-bit and the OS can be either 32-bit or 64-bit. The 64-bit software can't run on the 32-bit OS.

    I would back out the tweaks you did one-at-a-time to see if one of them caused the issue. If you find one of them caused the issue, then try with all the other tweaks except that one. I have used all versions of Office on Win 10 starting with Office 2003 without issue.

    I get it and that's what I would have done if I would tweaked just one or few options. But since I've spend few hours changing Group Policy, changing some settings in system Setting option and used 2 different tweaking programs, I was hoping you guys could help me to figure this out without having to repair Win
