Fix for “Office Word has not been installed for the current user”

January 19th, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Microsoft Office Word has not been installed for the current user. Please run setup to install the application.

Yesterday I tried to open a .doc file with MS Office Word 2007. Unfortunately the following error occurredto me


The same error occured when I attempted to start any other application from the office packet.


The solution

1) Go to the directory: %PROGRAMDATA%\Microsoft\OFFICE\DATA
2) Delete the files from the directory
3) Run any other office application.



OS: Windows 7 x86
Office version : 2007 12.0.6612.1000

    After searching far and wide, I finally found this post. Every other ‘fix’ had about 20-2,000,000 steps to fix the problem….needless to say, this was WAY easier! THANK YOU!
