After installing Office Home and Business 2010, SP1 and all Windows Updates, whenever I try to run Excel, I get this message...
The program can't start because MSVCR90.dll is missing from your computer.
Try reinstalling the program to fix the problem.
This problem is driving me nuts. I've repaired, uninstalled and reinstalled, used a Microsoft Office 2010 removal tool (Microsoft Fixit 50450), none of which have helped.
Only Excel doesn't work - Word, PowerPoint and Outlook are fine. I also haven't noticed any other applications with any problems. I've tried the C++ 2008 SP1 installer as you suggested, but it's made no difference.
Holding down Ctrl, or adding the command line argument
-s doesn't make any difference - the error message is just the same. There don't appear to be any add-ons defined in the registry under
