Re: Cheap Microsoft office?

MSO has just thrown a wobbly .....

All apps failed to open with error 0xc0000142

Attempts to repair failed

MS advised uninstall then reinstall

When I reinstalled, I was warned that the full version was only available until 6/11/17, i.e. today

MSO is now working OK, but, if it seizes up tomorrow, I shal be contacting the vendor for advice

The free version of the product shown in this film clip has good reviews.

Haven't used it myself so can't comment.

Thanks .....

I don't really want another scanner, though .....

Currently, MSO is working OK .....

ETA Your suggestion prompted me to run SFC - several corruptions found and repaired.

Re: Cheap Microsoft office?

Powerpoint can record your work on a PC screen and include it in the presentation, which is good, but, it appears, cannot record simultaneous audio, which is bad.

So, I've downloaded and trialled Bandicam which records both video and audio from a PC screen.

In the trial, I have uploaded videos to YouTube.

Examples in:

MuseScore 2 music notation software

Re: Cheap Microsoft office?

I'm hearing that some Microsoft Office Pro Plus 2016 users have been finding that their activation no longer works.

Don't know how extensive this is but would be let us know if it happens to you?

Maybe done by the latest Big Update.

No. I'm still using the old Office 2007 which is still problem-free.

Omah,

Can you check the end date?

When does it expire?

As far as I can tell:

Beta Expiration: 01/01/1601
License Status: ---00B_GRACE---
Remaining Grace: 1 Day

Whatever that means .....

Don't understand that either.

I'm now looking at the theory that the cheepo versions can only be activated once!

If so, they're done for if you change machines, etc.
