What is Microsoft Office 2010 Diagnostics Tool?

Microsoft Office 2010 has been a welcome release from Microsoft this year. It is the successor to Microsoft Office 2007, and contains lots of new features.

The Microsoft Office Suite 2010 contains a highly polished interface, with good colors and a great work desk. This features also contains a good troubleshooting program, offering extended file compatibility and a much better experience for its users. The Office Suite 2010 is also available for Windows XP Service Pack 3(32bit), Windows Vista Service Pack 1 and Windows 7.

For the first time ever, a 64 bit version of Microsoft Office has been made available to users with the introduction of the Office 2010. The feature also marks the introduction of free online versions of famous Office applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote, which are operational in all the popular browsers, such as Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.

Office Suite 2010 also has very refined Office 2010 Diagnostics Tool, which can be used to fix issues and problems that might occur in the Microsoft Office Applications. The Microsoft Office 2010 Diagnostics Tool would initiate a series of tests and checks to straighten out all issues that might arise in your software, and try to fix them. It also provides a step by step guide to fixing such issues, which are highly informative for the user as they can use it to solve their problems anytime they occur.

To initiate a diagnostic or “x-ray” scan to the Microsoft Office suite, users can go to Start > All Programs > Microsoft Office > Microsoft Office Tools > Microsoft Office Diagnostics.

Users can start the diagnostics process through the step by step wizard prompted. Users need to make sure their computer is connected to the Internet during the process.

The tests will be conducted by Microsoft Office Diagnostics when users run the tool:

Setup Diagnostic: This test checks for corruption in the files and registry settings in the Office 2007 installation. Files and settings can be corrupted by malicious viruses or by hardware that is faulty or incorrectly configured.

Disk Diagnostic: This test is to test the potential problems with users’ hard disk. It checks for errors logged by the Windows system event log or the Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology (SMART) feature of the hard disk.

Memory Diagnostic: This test is to verify the integrity of the computer’s random access memory (RAM).

Update Diagnostic:This test checks whether the computer is up to date with installed free service packs from Microsoft. Service packs are designed to make Office more stable. Users will be advised to install the updates available (if any) if they haven’t done so.

Compatibility Diagnostic: This test is to identify the conflicting versions of Microsoft Office Outlook that might be installed on the computer. Two different versions of Outlook cannot be installed on the same computer without causing instability.

Check for known solutions: This test is to review the data on crashes of the 2007 Office release that have recently occurred on the system. The test then connects to a server to look for any solutions that might be available for the problems that caused these crashes.

Upon completion of the diagnostics process, a summary result will be displayed and the repair (if any) will be fixed accordingly.
