Office 2013 preview

Recommended Posts

I have been tinkering with the new Microsoft Office 2013 preview for the last week or so. I realized yesterday it was preventing Vectorworks 2010 from starting. I usually leave VW running all the time, so it took a week before I actually tried to close and re-open VW before I realized this. I tried this on two different machines, both running Windows 7 x64. Same result on both machines.

Anyone else have this issue? Anyone tried it with a newer version of VW? I'm due to upgrade the end of this year, so maybe the problem will be solved with a new version.

I have seen this problem as well on 2 different Win 7 64bit machines. Install disables both Vectorworks 2010 & Vectorworks 2012. Removing the Office Preview restores Vectorworks ability to launch. This problem also exists after installing the YouSendIt application. Again, removing the application allows Vectorworks to launch.

Yes...the actual exe fails to launch. In fact, I noticed a missing entry in the registry. I had not installed a yousendit application when I noticed this behavior. Removing the office 2013 preview results in a return to normal functionality.

By the way, Grant, I hear congrats are in order...
