Error while starting office applications with Office 2010 Home and Student Trial

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -


Hi all,

I have downloaded Office 2010 Home as well as Student Trial, but I'm getting some trouble for last couple of days to start any office application.

When I try to start any of the office applications, I receive the following error message code  – “This program can't start because oart.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix the problem”.

Also, I've tried all the MS web answers (as well as reinstalling), but same results.

I'm applying open office and I have decided to make an effort with MS Office to evaluate the two. What should I do now?

Please help me to solve it.

Click Start>Run and then type CMD in the search box and then type regsvr32 Oart.dll and then hit the enter key.
