Hello there,

 

When I open Excel 2007 (as part of Home and Student) I get a strange error message:

 

"stdole32.tlb"

 

Then, when I dismiss the message I see the Office 2007 setup launch. It then goes to configure the installation. If I exit out of the configurator, Excel runs properly. I have seen numerous other threads, however those threads say that I should use Microsoft Fix-it, however when I try it the Microsoft Fix-it says that my operating system does not apply. I am using Windows 8.1. Also, if you were wondering, Microsoft Word works well. How can I fix this?

 

(Yes, I did run a virus scan)

Thanks!

Have you looked at the marked answer in this article - http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/office/forum/office_2007-office_install/stdole32tlb-file-missing/ba3e940d-d628-4334-ac89-5e8ac9878093

I just looked at the answer and tried it. Surprisingly, that did not work at all. It might be linked to when I installed a trial version of Home and Student 2013 to try it out, and then I uninstalled it, leaving the 2007 version intact. After I uninstalled it using the setup, that was when it started. Any ideas?

 

EDIT: When I run excel.exe /safe it works just fine.

Have you tried to repair the install of 2007 via Programs and Features?

You may need to uninstall Office using Revo Uninstaller - http://www.revouninstaller.com/ - and then reinstall.

Yes - it worked! Basically, just uninstall Office using Revo and check all of the remnants, including registry keys and files. Thanks for your support!

Yes this worked for me too. Many thanks for this. I would like to know error occurred in the first place. :clapping:
