When i click on them nothing happens. Afterwards, both Excel and Word no longer showed an error, and files are opening normally. However I don't think this is a problem, as the message appears even from locally saved documents. It could be permissions, as the error didn't occur on the machine with an administrative account, but alas, I haven't the time or need to fix the issue any longer.

I had a user who was having this issue as well.
Step Uncheck Run this program as an administrator Solution 4: Disable Add-Ins In my case, an add-in caused the problem — make sure to disable all add-ins temporarily. It happens everytime I use a shortcut from my mail boxes. Step If you see something like Office12,Office14,Office15 now, select Office12 double-click 9. I've done some research, and looked up forums, but i still haven't found a fix. After playing around with the problem more, I realized I was getting this error message when opening other types of files from not only my email program, but also the web.
Other programs work but not Office 365. Also the automatic fix from Microsoft states that the fix doesn't apply to my computer. Any idea if this problem is affected with Office 2016? Hey there everyone, I recently purchased Microsoft Office, but i'm actually having issues with it and i can't figure out the problem. Step Open a folder with Word documents 3. I never found out what caused the issue? Open Excel and click on the big Office button and then click on Excel Options.
It should also be noted that I have it linked to my OneDrive. We get this error because we have excel open in separate isntances each time a file is double-clicked. Here is how to do it: First, close all instances of Word that may be running. However, if I open Microsoft Word on it's own, and then selecting any document from the recent sidebar, the message does not appear. Then go to the Compatibility tab and make sure the Run program as administrator box is not checked.
This allowed macros to work with all open workbooks. This can be beneficial to other community members reading the thread. Having the box checked or unchecked appears to have no effect on anything for me. Thanks in advance for more suggestions. Also, I have not used Office 2016 didn't even know it existed yet so I have no idea.
I noticed that program one day but haven't tried it. If so, shut them down and try again. I appreciate all the updates to the issue I also read below. An update to the Office Compatibility Pack that was still on a computer caused the default program for. This had to be done for all of the different types of files that I open with Excel.
I can't figure out which one it is however. And that's resolved it Having open office installed can cause this too, along with power poi t viewer. I've done my research online but people's solutions didn't work for me. When i tried opening a excel file, it says 'There was a problem sending the command to the program' I'm using Microsoft Office 365 Home Premium on Windows 8. Uninstalling the Office Compatibility Pack in Programs and Features and then a simple reboot fixed the issue.
After trying a bunch of things, I finally got the problem fixed. Check the value on these keys. I am running Office 2013 - Win 7. If you delete it, it will be recreated when you open Word again the next time. I have previously written a post on and it goes through the steps to do both items mentioned above. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! I've had this error numerous of times, With many different issues causing it, Sometimes, changing the default printer can resolve it. None of the proposed solutions worked for me.
Windows 8 64b, Office 2013. Seems like everyone's solutions never work for me. However, I have not used it in at least a couple of years and have reformatted since I had last used it so it shouldn't be related to our issue.
