What does the error “Run Configuration Failure” mean?

David Weglarz March 7, 2012

My Lenovo laptop brand new, just started giving me a problem whenever I need to open a powerpoint presentation for college. It says “Run Configuration Failure.”

I have tried to uninstall it, but it won’t allow me. There are others with this same problem, and nobody has been able to fix it yet. Oh, and by the way, I am not a tech guy, so please nothing too technical.

    office did not install correctly. when installing office all recommended programs must be installed in order for each to work correctly, leaving one will cause this kind of errors. reinstall office.

    Ok, I a few questions, Are you running Office 2010 or Office 2007? If you have both, will one start and not the other?
    Also what are the drives you have listed under My Computer (or just Computer)? Are there any you don't recognize? Also is there a Click-2-Run program listed under Programs and Features in the Control Panel?
