    So I have office 2011, which ran fine on my mba until I upgrade to Mavericks, and now all of it works (excel, ppt etc) except word, which crashes on startup. I have the latest versions of everything, have reinstalled and patched office, and fixed my fonts and repaired permissions, no avail.
    I've read the other posts on this and tried their remedies, to no avail.
    The odd thing is that it runs fine in the guest account. I'm loathe to set up a new account and migrate to it, but is that what I need to do?

    had the same problem, re installing Office 2011 fixed mine, did not change anything else, fonts or permissions etc., still working just fine.

    Yeah, reinstalling didn't help me. Thanks.
