11.3.3 update causes Problems

I have autoupdates turned on, and this is the first update that has
caused problems for me.  I've figured out that post-update (which has
been applied 3 times), if Entourage is running, I can not launch Word,
Excel, or Powerpoint.  I get an error telling me that it cannot load
the Shared Libraries.  If Entourage is not running, everything starts
fine.  I can then start Entourage.  This is extremely inconvenient, as
I use Entourage for my work email.  What's the workaround for this?  Is
there a known issue with the updated?  I am running MacOS X 10.4.8 on a
15" MacBook Pro with the 2GHz Core Duo.

Thanks

FYI, A repair permissions from Disk Utility did not make this error go
away.  The exact text of the error message is:
Microsoft Word cannot load the Microsoft Office shard libraries.
The files may have been moved from their original locations.  Try the
following:
=B7 Move Word back to the Microsoft Office folder (or the folder where
it was originally installed).
=B7 Reinstall Word to make sure that all files are installed correctly.

Office is still in its original location.  If a Re-install is required,
what's the safe way to do it without losing all of my templates,
Entourage data, etc.?

I think you may have a stranded copy of a previous version of Office on your
computer, and the patch has updated the wrong one.

The "safe" way to do this is to run the Remove Office tool, which will
safely remove everything that Microsoft created and leave anything YOU
created.

I would still recommend running a backup before you start.  Rules 1 and 2 of
software maintenance:  "If everything is backed up, nothing will go wrong".
If anything is missing from the backup, that's what will be irretrievably
destroyed by the update!"  :-)

Remove both versions, then go hunt down your Normal template and delete that
too (if you don't get it out it will cause problems).

Then run the installer to put everything back.  Then run the 11.3 and 11.3.3
patches.  You should be good to go after that.

Hope this helps

How do I resolve complex iteration problems in Excel?
I have a p&l account, a balance sheet and a cashflow, running down the page. Bank interest in the P&L is calculated with reference to the average cash balances in the balance sheet, and cash balnces are determined by the cash flow. Dividends are paid, depending on profitability and cash balances. Unfortunately, the spreadsheet iterates, so instead of trending towards the right answere through iteration - the "calculation" tab on the tools/options sheet is crossed - it gives a wrong answer. Is there any way I can reorder my workings, or any changes I can make to pre...

Printing Issue #3
I am trying to make an invitation using publisher 2003. I am required to use a couple of photo's I have got of the school's website but they don't print. Normal clip art images will print but my pictures of the internet won't. I have tried saving them to the computer then using them and also copying and pasting and neither works. I also thought it might be because they were from the net so I used the orignals of a cd and it still did not print. They are being used as an image behind text but even without text over the top they still fail to print. The advance print...

Cannot get fast forward or fast reverse to work with WMP 11
I am running Vista Home Premium on a HP G 217-EM Notebook which comes pre-installed with Windows Media Player 11. When I play cds and try to fast forward or fast reverse by keeping the fast forward or fast reverse buttons constantly depressed nothing happens. Why is this, and can anyone come up with a solution? Many thanks This doesn't work on my system either, so it's probably just a limitation of WMP. Fast forward and fast reverse should work fine when you rip the CD's to MP3 or WMA files, and play these files instead. Regards -- Tim De Baets http://www....

Outlook email #3
We can't click on a link in an email message and get it to work. Pretty sure it has something to do with security settings. It's a new product for our company so no one really knows yet what to do. Are you talking about a link or an attachment? If it's an attachment, the culprit is IE 6.0, it stops attachments with certain (Level 1) extensions. You can remove that restriction via the registry. Outlook normally keeps you from opening attachments with extensions like .exe or .bat-files that can potentially be viruses. If you're confident that you (or your antivirus ...

Vista 64 bit updates from April 13/10
