Office 2013 preview crashing after update

If you’re running Windows 8 with Office 2013 preview and you restarted your machine recently you might notice that Word crashes when you open your existing documents.

It seems that something in the latest round of windows updates isn’t playing along. Luckily the fix is easy and only takes a few minutes and a reboot:

  1. Press the windows key
  2. Press CTRL + W
  3. Type “add”
  4. Launch Add or remove programs
  5. Highlight Microsoft Office 2013 Preview
  6. Click Change
  7. Choose Repair

 When the repair is finished and you are prompted reboot the machine and you should be back in action.
