Office 2008 & Lion Problems SOLVED

Recommended Posts

Hello All,


I have a new Air with Lion. I did a selective install from previous TM backup of my MacBook with Snow Leopard. All fine and loving Lion.

On startung Excel in Office 2008 I find that it will crash every time I make a significant change and try to save. Inserting lines or adding a new sheet etc.

I checked to make an autoupdate and the autoupdate app does not load in Lion as it says it is power PC only.


I checked Microsoft site and have downloaded the 12.3.1 update directly.


I cannot find anything on the web on Autoupdate being converted for Lion and the 12.3.1 update made no difference.

Microsoft says clearly they will support 2008 in Lion through 2013 but no comments on these bugs.


Anyone having similar issues?

Stop Press!!


The update 12.3.1 did the trick!

It put autoupdate back into the software and also solve (so far at least) the crashing issues.


So I appear to have solve my own problem, but if anyone else has the same experience, this is the fix!


Bye for now.
