Host = Windows XP.
Guest = OSX 10.4.1 under pearpc Prasys build.
I have installed Microsoft Office 2004, full install.
That's Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Entourage (that's their Outlook) and MSN Messenger.
After the install i applied all available patches and service packs.
Word and Excel are not starting.
Just the splash screen is shown, and then they hang.
A forced Quit is necessary.
Powerpoint, Entourage and MSN are running fine.
I noticed that after the install of Office, i couldn't run anymore Safari.
When the progress bar of loading a page is about 3/4, Safari just hangs - nothing is shown in the window.
Found out that the install of Office has crippled the fonts folder(s).
Also the Font Book can't be opened anymore - it crashes.
I applied Microsoft KB 313535
to no avail.
I deleted all fonts in the 3 folders in the affected disk,
and copied the fonts from a good disk.
It didn't help.
Safari still not launching, Font Book crashes, Word & Excel crash.
Can anyone confirm that a full install of Microsoft Office 2004 with SP1 can cause such trouble...?
