How to resolve error message ‘Please wait while Windows configures Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010’

If any time you try to launch Office 2010 or any application and you receive the following message:
Please wait while windows configures Microsoft office professional plus 2010, then this article may interest you.

Below are steps to take in resolving the issue:
Method 1: If you have a previous version of Office installed, such as Office 2003 or Office 2007, follow these steps:

– Click Start, click Run, type the following command; reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Word\Options /v NoReReg /t REG_DWORD /d 1 and then press Enter
– Launch Office suite and see if the problem has been resolved.

Method 2: If this problem still exists, follow these steps:

– Click Start, click Run, type the following command: secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\inf\defltbase.inf /db defltbase.sdb /verbose and then press Enter
– Launch Office suite and see if the problem has been resolved.

Method 3: If this problem still exists, start the Office program in safe mode. To do this, follow these steps:

– Click Start, point to All Programs, and then point to Microsoft Office.
– Press and hold the CTRL key, and then click the Office program you want to start.

Important: If the problem does not occur in the safe mode, this issue might be related to some third-party add-ins in the Office program, you can try to disable them. Normally, you could do the following to disable the conflict add-ins in your Office program.

To disable the add-ins, follow these steps:

– On the File menu, click Options, click Add-ins, click Go next to the Manage field that displays “Com-in Add”.
– Check if there is any add-ins, and then clear the checkbox to disable them.
– Close the Office program and restart it.
– Add one check back each time to the list of Add-Ins, restart the Office program, and repeat the above procedure. Once the issue reappears again, we can determine which add-in causes this problem and then disable it.

Microsoft recommends, if the problem persists in the safe mode, you can try to completely uninstall Office 2010 and then install it.
