    I have Office for Mac 2008 installed on my iMac (running Lion). I have 2 user accounts. In the primary account, I can launch an Office app no prob. But in the 2nd account, whenever I launch an Office app it takes me to the Office Setup Assistant, and then fails to launch the app. Can anyone tell me what's going on, and how to fix this?

    I'm assuming Microsoft Office is installed in the root Library folder.

    Each user will launch the setup assistant to enter name, contacts info etc for the new User.

    However, the applications should launch after setup.

    Was this a new User?

    You can see this link for help, but the situation you describe isn't one of the normal complaints we see.
