stdole32.tlb error


G

Guest

Each time I run Excel 2007 on Windows Vista, an error window would pop up
with the word 'stdole32.tlb'. When I click the 'OK' button, Excel goes into
re-installation. I've done an internet search, and realised that this is a
common problem.

How can I fix it?

this is a stab but in Vista you will get continuous pop-ups like this until
you log on as an administrator (even if you signed on as one) to explicitly
re-run the setup. Try right clicking the Excel.exe file and select run as
administrator, if you are logged on as one it will pop up the User Access
Control dialog and ask you to confirm the action, if you are not it will ask
for a logon and password before this. Allow the error to happen and run the
setup as this logon. Once completed this should fix it.

I solved the problem by reinstalling office 2007, but it's not the real
solution i think. I can't uninstall 2007, because then the errors occurs in
office 2003 again.

my problem is also that, the .docx or .doc documents or other office files
are not seen by office word. I mean, i must right click and then choose the
word as default program to run it but the icon of .doc files still seems
they're not default for word. Also, normally when right click and new there
must be new office word document or excel or powerpoint document but again
they are not there. I reinstalled lots of times but again the same problem.
The office programs work fine though. that's weird.

there is only One thig can Fix this issue that Is if you are on a Windows Vista 32 Bit computer
Log on to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971179
there Click on the Fix it Icon and Run it on your Computer . That Will completely take Off you Microsoft Office From your Computer then Simply reinstall the software . this Will fix the issue. Incase if you are on a 64 bit computer you have to Perform a Manual rip of Microsoft office By Following the article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928218 and then restart the computer and reinstal the Office 2007 and trust me this will fix your issue.
