attempting to use help in Office 2007 goes to the "Configuring ...

I am trying to use the help in various Office apps, but it isn't working.  
When I click the help, it goes into a "Configuring Microsoft Office Ulitmate 
2007..." dialog.  After it runs for some period of time, the Microsoft Office 
Help Viewer window opens.  A setup dialog then opens that says "In order to 
complete setup, a system reboot is necessary.  Would you like to reboot now?" 
 If I click No, another setup window pops open that says "Please wait while 
Windows configures Microsoft Office Word MUI (English) 2007".  That 
disappears and then it says no help topics were found.

I have tried rebooting, uninstalling and reinstalling Office but it hasn't 
worked.  I don't see any errors in the event view for Office or Application. 

I have tried running Word as an administrator.  I have tried running word by 
double clicking the winword.exe file in the Programs directory and from the 
shortcut in the start menu.

I am running on Windows 7 x64.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I had the same problem when I had to reinstall Office 2007 after a
system failure.  After the 2nd or 3rd time of trying to get the help
files, I decided to forget it. Those help files weren't that good
anyway.  You can get better help from numerous places on the net.

Try deleting the help folder under C: Program Data\Microsoft Help. Program 
Data folder is a hidden folder, hence you need to enable the hidden folders 
and files
Once you delete the folder, repair office 2007 
Even after if the help does not work, then you need to uninstall Office 2007 
by following the Microsoft Support Article

Thanks for the info.   I'll give it a try.  But if it doesn't work, no
big deal. Like I said before, the MS Help files are (in my estimation)
pretty lame and not very helpful.

Mac office 2004 install question
Where does the normal install normally place the "Microsoft User Data" folder that contains, among other things, the Entourage message database? Thanks, -gb In username/documents.

Report from Access 2003 to 2007 problem
I have converted a database designed in 2003 to 2007. One of the reports unfortunately does not work the same as it did in 2003. The report generates invoices and on the form I had put in a text box with the Control Source property set to [Enter Invoice Date] which brings up a dialog box when the report is run asking the user to put in a date. This works ok in 2003 but comes up as #Error in 2007 in the report generated. In 2007 report design, the text box has a green triangle on it indicating an error "Invalid Control Property: Control Source" & "No such field in t...

How to draw a regression line on 7000+ dated data with Excel 2007
How to draw a regression line on 7000+ dated data using Excel 2007 Are your "dates" actual Excel dates or just text? With actual Excel dates, pre-2007 versions have no problem doing simple linear regression. To interpret the results though, you need to remember how Excel dates are stored: An Excel date is the number of days since 1900, so the numeric value of today's date is 39736, and the intercept of the regression will be the value of the relationship extrapolated to 30Dec1899 (since Excel mistakenly considers 1900 to be a leap year) "Gordon Lee" wrote: >...

Using PERCENTILE with *specific* cells in a column
I am trying to use the PERCENTILE function with specific cells in a column. For example, lets say the column is: A 1 5 2 6 3 7 4 8 Using PERCENTILE on say A1:A3 is easy enough, but I want to do say A1 and A4. I can achieve this by defining a named range such that it would be equal to A1 and A4, but would rather not use named ranges, as the above is a very simplistic example of what I want to do -- using named ranges would require a substantial amount of effort to achieve my end goal. I also realize I could re-order the rows such that I swap A4 with A2, therefore could use perc...
