    Yes, it works fine on a Win 7 machine that I have as well. It only happens on my Win 8 machine. I had upgraded a previous installation of Office 2010 to 2013, so this might be the culprit, although...

    Hi Andrew,

    Thanks for your help.

    Hmmm, very interesting. I created a small app to replicate the issue and tried 2 approaches -- 1) create a new instance, 2) use an existing instance. The...
  3. It is my own application, nothing special. I...

    It is my own application, nothing special. I believe I can reproduce the issue with a generic VB app that simply opens a document. Instantiating Word itself is not a problem, nor making it visible....
  4. Word 2013: Automating From VBA Generates Configuration Message Repeatedly

    Hi,

    I have a VB6 application that automates Word, basically starting it and creating a new Word document. It should also do some other things, but it never gets that far. As soon as the app is...
  5. Office Apps Always Configure When Automated From VB

    I just "upgraded" from Office 2010 to Office 2013. I have an application at work that automates Word from a VB6 application. Prior to the upgrade the automation worked fine. Now, when Word is...
  6. Skype won't pop up chats on Win 8 desktop

    Hi, I am running Windows 8.1 64-bit, latest updates installed. I downloaded the latest Skype (6.14.60.104) for Windows so that I could install on the desktop. All works as expected except that when...
  7. Office 2010: Export Project to Excel and Retain Formatting

    Hi,

    I have a MS Project 2010 Pro project that I want to export to Excel 2010 Pro, but would like to retain the "formatting" of the project plan. So all task indents, etc. I tried exporting the...

    I had seen that as well, but it isn't very granular. I can transfer all "Program Settings" or "Windows Settings", but can't select just a subset of these, like just the Office applications'...

    Hi Joe,

    I have installed 2013 on a new VM and want to migrate the settings on my 2010 desktop installation to it.
  10. How To Migrate Office Settings: 2010 => 2013?

    My question pertains to all Office apps, not just Word. I just installed Office 2013 and want to migrate my customized preference settings for all of the apps. I see how to migrate the settings for...

    I want to automate Word, Excel, and PowerPoint to produce reports of varying types in those applications for a commercial product (currently, client server fat client) that my company has. We have a...

    Yes, I suspect as much. However, since I last posted I found that LibreOffice can be automated within the browser, so I was hoping for similar functionality with MS Office.

    I had assumed that...

    Automate Word from browser?

    Is it possible to automate Word from within a browser? I want to have a web page that has, for example, a Spell Check button that would run Word's spell checker, among other things. Word would be...

    Thanks, CAJ. I have experimented with multiple pst files before and it does work, although a bit of a pain logging in and out of sessions. Would be great to have a simple dashboard for all...

    Thanks, Joe.

    Again, I am amazed that there isn't a "simple" solution for people like me who want to host their own emails and do not want a cloud-based solution.
  16. So if I go with an Exchange-based solution it...

    So if I go with an Exchange-based solution it seems I want MAPI; for other solutions I would use IMAP. Now the only trick is setting it up! This leads me back to the original question of "how" to...

    Thanks ruirib. I definitely do not want a cloud solution.

    I may be able to install Exchange if that is the way to go, but as I said, other posters had said it was overkill. I think there were...

    Quite sure. It was simple when it was just me and my wife downloading emails to a single desktop and automatically removing them from the ISP's server. It got more complicated when we started using...
  19. that may be the ultimate solution, but I was just...

    that may be the ultimate solution, but I was just trying to explain the goal and then get opinions as to how to best implement it. So, to re-state it, the goal is to have a straight-forward,...
  20. Setting up a centralized Outlook server for home

    I have looked through the threads and see similar questions, but not exactly the same as what I am seeking to do, so here goes.

    I want to set up a centralized email "server" to manage my family's...
  21. Project 2010: How To Print Resource Calendars For Non-Working Time?

    Hi,

    I want print off a calendar for each project resource (formerly known as people :rolleyes:) to see their scheduled non-working time (vacation, jury duty, etc.). I can print the entire...

    You do not say if you have determined that the font is embeddable. So even if it is available on your machine, when you attempt to embed it and send the presentation to your client the font will be...
  23. I agree with Gary. And one more thing to try is...

    I agree with Gary. And one more thing to try is to change the font to a "common" font, if possible. If the font/size remains consistent on yours and the client's machines then it is proof positive...

    Hi amakeler,

    This sounds like a font embedding issue. If your client is using non-standard fonts, e.g. those not installed with Windows -- especially if their version of Windows is older --...
  25. PPT 2007: Is There An Equivalent To ExecuteMSO "PictureFitCrop"?

    I have some VBA code that uses Application.CommandBars.ExecuteMso "PictureFitCrop" to coerce a picture to fit within a shape, show the entire picture, and maintain its aspect ratio. This works fine...
