So, the last vestige of my mothers need for Windows is Office. She is unwilling to learn something else, arg.
I've successfully installed and activated Office 2010 in a Windows 7 bottle - from the look of it everything WORKS! wow. The only issue is that once a bottle is quit, or the computer is restarted, any launched Office program results in the "configuration progress" window, for whatever reason.
When this complete's it prompts for a "reboot" (LOL Windows bs.) Allowing it to do so hangs the processes, and it doesn't "do it" clicking "no" results in Office Whatever opening successfully, sometimes warning about safemode if it crapped out previously.
Now, from my research, it seems that this is related to OSPPSVC.exe or some kind of permissions issue related to the user privilege level office is being run as (or the "Networking Service" account not having the correct permissions).
I've seen suggestions that: "secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\inf\defltbase.inf /db defltbase.sdb /verbose" will solve the issue .. it does not, I've also tried entering the regedit registry editor and adding dword values for "NoReReg" under both word and outlook to no affect.
Can anyone shed light on this issue, aside from it everything works, but mother isn't going to be pleased about all the re configuring.
This is one of the pages I've been looking at to try and figure out what's happening: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2528748/microsoft-office-2010-professional-plus-configures-each-time-you-start
Thanks, hopefully someone knows as I'm stumped once again with how to solve Microsoft's tangled mess of rediculosity.
