Millions of computer users around the world relaying on Microsoft Office productivity suite. Ease of use, elegant user interface and rich set of features make it the most used productivity software in the word.
While using Microsoft Office 2010 or Office 2013, at times, you might encounter issues after changing some configurations or installing new add-ons. Although issues caused by configuration changes or installation of new add-ons are can easily be rectified by resetting to default settings or uninstalling add-ons using Office Safe Mode. And if the problem persists or has nothing to do with add-ons or configurations, we need to repair Office installation.
Scan and repair Office 2007, 2010 and 2013
To help Office users quickly analyse Office programs for known configuration that cause issues, there is a free tool called Office Configuration Analyzer Tool by Microsoft. The tool scans your Office installation for known configurations that cause problems and helps you fix them.
The tool provides scanning for Microsoft Office Word, Excel, Access, OneDrive for Business, InfoPath, Outlook, PowerPoint, Visio, Publisher, and OneNote.
Upon installing and launching the tool for the first time, it automatically checks for updates and installs, if available. The tool automatically scans and detects the version(s) of Office installed on your PC. You just need to select the version (if you have installed multiple versions) and Office applications by clicking on them. Finally, click the Scan button.
Once the scanning is done, it will list all identified issues with links to pages containing possible fixes. As you can see, the tool also checks if the status of the antivirus program on your PC.
Microsoft Office Configuration Analyzer Tool supports both 32 and 64-bit of Office 2013, and Office 2010. This tool also supports Office 2007. The tool requires .NET Framework 4.5 version. So if it’s installed, when you run the installer of Office Configuration Analyzer Tool, it prompts you to install the same.
