Windows 7: Cannot run office in safe mode - cannot verify license

Cannot run office in safe mode - cannot verify license

I have had this computer for 18 months running Win 7 Pro with Office 2010.
When I boot to safe mode, and try to run any of the office products, I get the message "Microsoft Office cannot verify the license for this application. A repair attempt failed or was canceled by the user. The application will now shut down." How do clear this problem?

Try a repair Install, from the office disk and re-input your serial number

Quote: Office 2010 applications won’t run in Windows Safe Mode, because ‘Office Software Protection Platform’ service won’t run in Windows safe mode, which is required for Office applications to start.

I have experienced similar issues with a couple of other programs where if used in Safe Mode I get a "Licence Expired" message. Boot normally and they work fine.

Already tried the re-install. No luck there.

Yet another quality software offering from Microsoft. FAIL!

Thanks.

Future readers are encouraged to drop a "FAIL!" note to Microsoft here:

PS
Yeah, it's dumb you cannot comment on the ENTIRE office suite, you have to pick one at a time. OMFG.

MS Office License keeps popping up
Each time I start one of the Office 2003 programs I get a window with the License Agreement text and I have to click "Accept" before I can start to work. But I activated the software, and it told me the activation was accepted. So why does it always wave the license at me?
