    Exclamation Fixes for MS14-082 - fixes?

    Running Win7 x64 and Office 2014.

    The latest update, KB 2553154 (MS14-082), broke my Active-X controls as it did for many others. I followed the "fix" directions and it did not fix the controls, so I uninstalled KB 2553154. This brought back my Active-X controls and everything was OK -- for a few days.

    I then received a newer version of a workbook that I use daily for my business. It is full of Active-X controls and macros, and was saved by its creator on a Win7 32-bit machine, where it runs fine. None of its macros will run on my 64-bit machine, generating "Run-time error 32089" messages that point to a place in the code that makes no sense (selecting a worksheet that does exist). This same workbook runs fine on my Win XP 32-bit machine that I keep as a backup system but don't use. Susan Bradley's latest column makes note of this problem, but her solution (and MS's) is to reinstall the offending update and remove the old .exd files. Well, I did that originally and it didn't fix the broken Active-X controls. I feel like I'm running in circles here. Does MS plan a grand fix for this debacle? Is there anything I can do to get this new wb to run without error on a 64-bit machine.

    Would love to hear from someone who has fixed this problem.
    Thanks.

    Dear 6rtury:

    Below is the article from the "askwoody" home page. Have you tried the last suggestion?

    In other words, can you remove the update KB3008923?

    If not I would suggest you Google "KB 2553154" and see what others have done. Good luck. TD

    A R T I C L E

    Botch brigade: KB 2553154, 2726958 clobber Excel ActiveX; KB 3011970 Silverlight and KB 3004394 Root Cert both pulled

    But wait! There’s more!

    KB 3008923 crashes IE, KB 3002339 still hanging on install, KB 2986475 still pulled.

    Details at InfoWorld Tech Watch.

    I just had an independently reported crash, from PB:

    I wanted to mention that I work for a small company and starting yesterday everyone in the office started getting IE failure messages “Internet Explorer has stopped working A problem caused the program to stop working correctly……. Close Program” I have found that be removing the new update KB3008923 has resolved the problem on all computers.

    Thanks, PB

    And do keep in mind you probably are using Office 365, Office 2013 or Office 2010. It can make a difference as things do change between versions.

    The number 14 is the version of the applications in Office 2010, version 15 in Office 2013, version 12 was Office 2007. So far as I know Office 2014 has not been released and is for Macintosh.
    http://www.macworld.co.uk/news/mac-s...tlook-3456798/
    I have Office 2007, 2010 and 2013 for Windows on different computers/versions of Windows and Office 2008 and 2011 on my MacBook Pro.
    The Windows and Macintosh versions can use most of the data files interchangeably, at least I have been able to so far.

    This thread saved me an enormous amount of research and from having to do a system restore. The kb2553154 update was pushed out at my work (Office 2013) and bundled in my updates for my home PC (Office 2010). All my active X controls were crippled leaving critical processes non-functional. I have uninstalled the update and all my active X controls are functioning normally again. I have blocked the update for any future reinstalls.

    Thanks to 6rtury for posting as well as duthiet and Berton for their solution inputs.

    Hello

    I ran into the same problem myself... similar...
    I created some Excel with Active-X controls and did the update KB2553154 and my buttons stopped working (Office 2010-64bit). Read up online and they say to delete Excel8.0, VBE, Word8.0 from Temp folder. Did that and button works again and continue to create the excel worksheet. As my co-workers also had the same problem and I tried the temp folder removal and buttons still wouldn't work. Had to un-install the update KB2553154 and cleared the temp folder in order for the buttons to work. (She's using Office 2013-32bit with Office 2010-32bit installed as well) (both my and her machines are 64bit Windows 7 pro FYI)
    After I finished my worksheet and distributed out... many works except for a few. (One with the KB2553154 uninstalled) I couldn't figure out why it didn't work on her computer but works on mines and others. I then look at her and my computer with KB2553154 missing on her computer. I uninstall on mine and clear the temp folders and it produce same runtime error as you are getting. I re-install the KB2553154 and whatever else updates from Microsoft and cleared the temp folder (Using Ccleaner) and everything is working again. I did the same for my co-worker and it is working now.
    Either there was some updates after KB2553154 or something but now it's working for everyone in my company.

    Hope this helps out.

    (In my opinion)This is what I found out. When the KB2553154 was installed and my worksheet with Active-X was saved and distributed... then it seems that computer without KB2553154 update will get a run-time error '32809' and when clicked on "Debug" it will bring you to the yellow line with something along the lines of "Sheets(...)...select or Row etc.
    worksheets with Active-X saved before the KB2553154 update and distributed did not get this run-time error.

    Thanks.

    Not sure which temp folder(s) you are referring to. I've tried everything suggested here (except clearing out the "temp" folder) and still get that error whenever VBA code tries to access another worksheet. Am really upset at this. If you'll explain which temp folders you cleared, will try that too.

    Thanks,

    6rtury,

    You must block the update by hiding it or it will auto reinstall again if your updates are set to auto.

    I do have it blocked, along with KB2910902 and KB2589348, two other security updates for Excel/Office that came down in the same package. I have automatic updates turned off, using "Notify me when updates are available" instead. I then check what's offered against the Patch column recommendations in Windows Secrets Newsletter. Unfortunately, they missed this group until it had affected a lot of users. Uninstalling the three updates brought me to the point where I can use my Excel VBA macros, but cannot use the same updated workbook sent to me by its author because he saved it on his 32-bit Win machine and has all the Office updates installed on his machine. Have tried all suggestions to get rid of the error message (which appears when any of the macros attempt to go to a worksheet or change anything on a worksheet).

    Again, which Temp directory is GuestUser referring to?

    Microsoft Just rolled out some updates which may have a fix. If the updates do not correct it, do a system restore to a restore point to somewhere in mid-December.

    There were no Office updates this week that came down for for Win 7 users. If you have a link to the KB pages, can you send them? As for restoring, going back to before Dec 9 is impractical and probably not possible for my system: have too may restore points since Dec 9. Aside from this, I have no problems with my workbooks. The problem is that the author of this particular workbook has all the updates installed on his computer, and is not about to uninstall them. He installs all updates automatically and has experienced no problems with his 32-bit machine and Excel. I cannot use his latest versions, which creates a problem for my work.
