Im trying to repair my excel and word starter 2010?

When i go to programs they aren't on the list although the icon is right there on the desktop, how can i get them on the list?


Answer

You need to use the installation CD, to re install Office Starter, or use another option called "Repair"

Otherwise, you may need to re install the whole system (Windows and everything) if Office starter came with Laptop itself

How can retrieve the InstallDate for Windows and MS Office with an Excel Macro ?


Answer

The date of Windows installation is the date that Administrator account was created (or your User account)
And the date of Office istalled is the date of Microsoft Office folder was created
So
Depend on your Windows version (VISTA or XP) use this code to get the installation date/time of Windows

Sub WinDate()
Dim fs, fo
Set fs = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSyste…
Set fo = fs.GetFolder("c:\Users\Administrator")
MsgBox fo.DateCreated
End Sub

Change the c:\Users\Administrator to c:\Documents and Settings\Administrator if you have WinXP
(Although the second one will run in VISTA as well)

Do the same for c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office

good luck
