[WIN10/OFF] Office issues after Win10 upgrade

Post by darkwiz » 13 Dec 2018 14:38

After an inplace upgrade Windows 7 to Windows 10 there are issues with Office applications.
- Excel hangs at 0% while opening a document.
- Word shows an insufficient memory or disk space error while opening a document.

The solution was given by TheMillersWife on Spiceworks. This is a permission issue on the fonts folder. Run powershell and use the following commands.

Code: Select all

Get-acl C:\Windows\fonts\arial.ttf | Set-Acl -path c:\windows\fonts\*.*
Get-acl C:\Windows\fonts\arial.ttf | Set-Acl -path c:\windows\fonts
pain is nothing a downpour won't erase
