    When I open Microsoft Word I get an error message saying there was an error reading the Microsoft Office frame work. This started this morning (everything was fine when I went to bed last night) but now the apps will either not launch at all or display this message. Reinstalling isn't an option right now, I do have a full hard drive back up so I can replace the framework from there. Where is this framework? I have to write a paper and need help quick.

    ---Thank so much.

    Yup Mac version.


    After deleting the preferences Word launches (other Office Apps don't) and I still get this message.

    Delete ~/Documents/Microsoft User Data

    Or at least move it and make a new one.

    Quit Word and kill the Database Daemon using Activity Monitor if it's running.

    Try updating Office as well.

    I'm surprised that trashing ~/Documents/Microsoft User Data didn't work though.

    Is your copy of Office up to date? I remember I had this problem and the solution was to update it. Cleared the problem right up.
