Move and hide the Microsoft Office User Data folder
Authored by: cpac on Feb 20, '04 04:10:53PM

Ummm....

I hate to burst anyone's bubble, but this is *all unnecessary.*

Just drag your Microsoft User Data folder to your Library (~/Library/) and Office will find it there just fine, and never create a new one in your Documents folder.

Move and hide the Microsoft Office User Data folder

didn't work for me. MS just went and created a new User Data folder to replace the one I just moved.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but I just tried it, and Word did re-create the Microsoft User Data in my Documents folder. Perhaps there is more to the trick than your post suggested?

Move and hide the Microsoft Office User Data folder

Hi,

It has worked for me.
I moved the Microsoft User Data folder to /User/xxx/Library/Application Data while Word was opened.

After having closed Word then re-opened it, the Microsoft User Data folder was NOT re-created in my Document folder.

So, the SetFile command is not the only solution to get rid of this folder.

Bye,

My folder gets recreated in Documents when I try this. Running 10.3.2 with latest MS Office updates on a relatively clean system, no haxies. I tried moving to my Library folder, Application Support, and I created an Application Data folder. Didn't work, and that doesn't surprise me.

Unexpected Error Loading Microsoft Framework X Library
Authored by: dohrn on Mar 08, '04 06:42:52PM

I recently installed Microsoft Office on 25 MACs and had an "unexpected error loading Microsoft Framework X library" on 5 of them. Do you have a fix for this?
