    Anyone running Office 2013 Pro TechNet version?


    I installed the release version of Office 2013 from TechNet. But neither Word nor Excel are working. When I start either program, their start screen comes up normally. When I try to create a blank document, or open an existing document, I get an error dialog "Microsoft Word is not working" and the app terminates. Access and Powerpoint seem to load ok (though I have not tested them beyond their ability to create a blank document).

    Event viewer shows:

    Anyone seen anything like this, or have any suggestions? I tried a repair install but that did not help.

    I do have LibreOffice installed, and doc and xls file extensions default to LibreOffice, but that shouldn't break Word or Excel.

    Found the answer -- incompatibility with ABBYY FineReader addin. Fixed by disabling the addin.

Hi there judging by the latest advertising for Office 365 (subscription model - up to 5 PC's) and the restriction of Office 2013 being fixed to the ORIGINAL computer (i.e you can't move it when getting a new computer) I'd suspect that future Office products will now be only subscription models. ...
