    Hi everyone! I was wondering if anyone was having issues with Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac running on 10.10? I have had Office on my mac since I got 10.10 but just the other day that it stopped working. I keep getting a 0x80000008 error code when I go to log in, I know that supposed to be a discrepancy in the location and language between office and my mac but I have checked and they are both the same. I have tried to contact Office support but they are always "busy" :mad: but I was wondering if you guys had the same issue and if anyone knew how to make it work?

    Since you're running on a beta, I don't think they'll be to open to helping you anyways.

    From what I've seen here in this forum, Office is working, so it might something with your installation. Did you try to uninstall/reinstall?

    Not yet, I really didn't want to have to, but I guess I will try that now. :(

    Use Office in reader mode, run Office update, and then try again.

    Seems to work flawlessly for me. :s

    Although cause Yosemite isn't released yet you won't get much support from MS over that. They'll perhaps fix issues come release.

    ...or you could always use iWork. :p

    Ahhhh mean online services. I'm unable to test those and I'm not surprised they wouldn't work for now tbh. Afraid you'll probs have to wait for release. Just don't log in? Or if you have to get work done use iWork or revert back to Mavericks?

    I'm using MS Office 2007 with no problems, with one bug. When I open the mail app for Office 2007, it opens a blank message window.

    I keep using MS Office 2011 Mac and it works perfectly. No issues at all. Furthermore - I received a new Office update (the latest version now is 14.4.4). Just try to update it from the Help - Check for updates)

    Same problem here


    I'm having the exact same issue. Also running Yosemite, Beta 2. It was broken, then I managed to get it working a while (perhaps by downloading an Office Update), and then it got broken again...

    I just updated to the most recent version (14.4.4), but it fails me. :( Anyone has ANY ideas?

    office 2011 here. Running the latest Office Update, and DP7.
    All works fine for me, just had a Powerpoint issue, but it was a easy view setting fix :)
    what about deleting .plist files?

    Plist files


    Please elaborate. Info.plist, version.plist or what?
