Did I mention how well my laptop has been running since the Vista reinstallation? Oh yeah, except I still haven’t tackled iTunes again 🙂
Here’s one that’s caught me out before .. and, as I didn’t reinstall the applications (hubby did) .. it snuck back in again. Small business owners in Australia & New Zealand may be familiar with the MYOB suite of accounting/bookkeeping software. It literally stands for Mind Your Own Business. Well, Accounting Plus v17.0.0 (and some earlier versions) don’t play well with Microsoft Office 2007. In particular, when you try to display a payroll advice, MYOB crashes with a “stopped working” error. Very frustrating when you are trying to process the salary payments. Even more frustrating when it’s your own salary you are trying to pay.
The solution? Uninstall the Microsoft Office Groove component (Control Panel > Programs and Features > highlight Office and click Change > add/remove features > click Microsoft Office Groove and select Not Available > click Continue and follow your nose). This will require a reboot.
Problem experienced with Office Enterprise 2007 on Vista, but may not be isolated to this particular configuration.
So, just when I thought I’d got my Groove back, I had to uninstall it 🙂
