I have just built a PC and have installed windows 7 pro 64 bit on it. I have installed office 2013 home & business. When I try and run any office program, it gives an error on start-up.
I have found if i run the office programs in compatibility mode for windows xp, or I run them as an administrator, then they work fine. This is obviously not the right way of doing it. And I cannot use the quick search function in outlook while running as an admin.
Any idea's as to what can be causing this.
Right click the program pictogram at the map under Start/Programs. Choose Proporties (or simular to it, the lowest in the list), choose Compatibility mode tabe and you can set it here all belos to 'Start up as Administrator'. Now you have no worries about it so far.
What you could do is check the Office version for Windows specs, I guess Windows 7 will be in the list.
What you could do too is, adding the Error Information to your question as an information code. That might help too.
