I have installed Microsoft Office 2008 in my recently purchased Macbook Pro. It has ran well for about a week. When i tried to open word to write a paper last night it opened, stayed for a second and then closed out. A message then popped up that said "Microsoft word has encountered a problem and needs to close." It does this for every application that has come with Microsoft office. I have updated word up to version 12.1.2 and it stays up longer but still closes out after 3 seconds at most. And i have done all of the system updates as well and it still happends. Woudl it work if i uninstalled it and then re installed it in my computer? I bought it through my school, and can only be "installed once" does that for ever, or just can only be installed on one computer.

any help would be great because i need to write a lot of papers in college haha

That's what I would try. I think the single install reference pertains to installing that particular copy on more than one machine.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Not sure if this is the same issue, but I’m using Mac OS X 10.5.6 and after a recent Office update I had some problems with Excel.

Using mac office 2008 when I tried to open any excel file, or start from scratch, I got, “microsoft excel has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.”

After searching several forums I came across this nugget:
Have you tried quitting all Office apps then throwing away your Office and Excel preferences:
~/Library/Preferences/com.microsoft.Excel.plist
~/Library/Preferences/com.microsoft.office.plist

Since I was having issues with Excel, I threw just the Excel file away, and when I started Excel again, bingo it worked! No idea why, just did.

Your problem may be fixed, but thought I'd post this for those that may be up at 3 am ready to type that paper or work on that spreadsheet and looking for an answer.
