  1. Office 365 sometimes unable to start


    Out of nowhere in last few days I boot up and try to launch an office program such as word or excel and get met after several seconds of nothing with a dialogue box of blah, blah, excel, or winword is unable to start and some innocuous code. Press ok to close. And it just won't open no matter how many times I try unless I restart machine. Anybody else see this? I wonder if the latest public build is buggy but it only happened at weekend for first time. Fine for several boots after and then happens again tonight. I looged out and in but no different so had to restart machine where upon it is fine again. Any ideas? I wonder if it's something to do with that new home/splash page MS seems to be pushing on 365 users causing aggro. I checked reliability history and no errors in here to do with office but it does seem to coincide with a COM surrogate has stopped working message

    My gut feeling is it's a bug playing up and next slew of office updates will fix it (maybe something in v1809 which I am on not playing nice) but a slight concern nonetheless

    :)

  2. Cortana & Office 365 Integration

    We are trying to integrate Cortana with our Office 365 subscription, but it never works. Here are the steps we have done:



    • Turned on Cortona in the Office 365 Admin portal
    • We are using Windows 10 1703 – connected Office 365 service to Cortana
    Did the same on windows 10 mobile with no luck, Cortana says its connected to Office 365, but sees no data and we are getting zero errors

    We went rough office 365 support first and tried all fo their suggestions, they kicked us over to Windows support which is currently closed.

    We are on v1703 with all updates in place, it does not work on Windows 10 desktop or mobile

    any ideas? I can give you all steps 365 support had us run through if that will be helpful

    Thank you

    Doug

    Windows 10 Office 365 cannot open files from: recent file list


    Thanks for the tip! I followed all above steps.

    So far I can open files from the Recent files list when I enter Word itself, however I still am unable to open any documents using the Word icon pinned to the taskbar:
