1. Install Visual Basic for Applications also: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/281953
That's an option you should be able to find, once you know how it's called.
2. This indicates a program running on startup that you don't want (like OSA.exe). Do Start>Run>Msconfig, and see if you can find out what it is (must be somewhere in program files\office or whatever folder Office is installed in) and uncheck it.
Hope this helps.
My Acer laptop crashed and I got a new hard drive. Windows XP home was loaded, but no Word or Excell, so I loaded a 2002 XP version of each. Now when I open Windows, I get the following message:
"The function you are attempting to run contains macros or content that requires macro language support. When this software was installed, you (or your administrator) chose not to install support for macros or controls."
This pops up over and over and is really annoying. I've tried reloading Word over and again, but there is no macros option on the install. I don't load the entire XP, just select word and excell.
Any advice would be much appreciated!
