Office Mac 2004 crashes Exception: EXC_BAD_ACCESS

Office Mac 2004 crashes Exception: EXC_BAD_ACCESS - 02/11/13 02:18 PM

All of a sudden my Office for Mac 2004 started to crash on it's own. Word, Excel and Powerpoint refuses to open, Entourage works just fine.

It ain't a corrupted file, I double-click on the app icon and all I get is a error message. Tried deleting all microsoft.plist, repairing permissions, new account, all of that and then reinstall the package and update everything but still no go.

Any ideas? It's kinda urgent as I need Excel to work on spreadsheets that has macros...

The error message is as follows:
Code:

Re: Office Mac 2004 crashes Exception: EXC_BAD_ACCESS - 02/11/13 07:31 PM

So it crashes when you log in to a new user account too?

If so download Font Finagler and clear all font caches first.

If that doesn't work you may have a bad font in Library/Fonts. Move all fonts out of it to a folder and try again. Not System/Library/Fonts! It has fonts you need to rum the system. That should be reserved for the basic System fonts, unless you've moved fonts into it there should only be around 40 or so fonts by default.

Re: Office Mac 2004 crashes Exception: EXC_BAD_ACCESS - 02/11/13 07:34 PM

Did you delete the Office 2004 folder from Applications before reinstalling?
Posted by: caincha

Re: Office Mac 2004 crashes Exception: EXC_BAD_ACCESS - 02/12/13 04:50 AM

Follow up with what I did so far:

-deleted Office folder
-searched with Spotlight and deleted anything Microsoft-related (fonts, plist, but not Entourage identities)
-emptied trash
-fixed permissions with Disk utility
-re-install everything back
-fixed permissions
-re-install updates
-fixed permissions

And now not even Entourage works anymore, so I'm downloading Libre Office and I hope I can work with my macros in it...

Re: Office Mac 2004 crashes Exception: EXC_BAD_ACCESS - 02/12/13 05:24 AM

Could be the Entourage identities folder. All Office programs use that also.

So you decided not to try the font thing I mentioned? Oh well. Good luck. I'm moving on then.

Upgrade to Office 2011 for new, improved, much faster, and more informative crashing.

Re: Office Mac 2004 crashes Exception: EXC_BAD_ACCESS - 02/12/13 10:07 AM

I've been using 2011 for a few years without any problems. But the last two software updates have been primarily related to Office 365 (the subscription model that I'm not gonna bother with), so now I get these occasional error messages telling me that Office 365 can't locate the server. WTF? Is MS gonna revive the practice of slamming? smirk

Seriously? I said right there that I deleted it all too!
Anyway, Entourage is the only one that was working to begin with, it stopped working after I messed around with it some more.

But then I did a safe boot, uninstalled everything (again!), emptied the trash, moved all my fonts to the trash (all but system fonts - and left it there), reinstalled everything back (yet again!!) and only managed to get Entourage working again.

Also, Libre Office doesn't handle well my macros, so I'm stuck until I can reformat the whole disk - crappy solution the Microsoft way...

Re: Office Mac 2004 crashes Exception: EXC_BAD_ACCESS - 02/12/13 06:05 PM

You said you deleted only MS fonts at first. Since you now only left System fonts, run Font Finagler, it could still be a font in the font caches somewhere. How many fonts are listed in System/Library/Fonts?

Can you launch anything MS in Safe Boot mode to see if it is a third party item or font.

Install this again;

http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1573

Try this too;

Open the Terminal (located in Applications/Utilities)
Type: sudo update_prebinding -root / -force and press Return.
When prompted for a password, enter your admin password, you won't be able to see characters being typed, and press Return again. The process is complete when the Terminal returns to a normal prompt.
Type exit and press Return.

Not really. Not sure what version of the OS you are running but you can reinstall the system over the one you have. 10.5 and earlier calls it Archive and install, 10.6 does an A&I by default.

Re: Office Mac 2004 crashes Exception: EXC_BAD_ACCESS - 02/12/13 07:40 PM

I am running Tiger 10.4.11 and it has 33 fonts on System/Library/Fonts and i can't launch any Office app from safe mode, only Entourage.

That update won't work as it is for S.Leopard but I'll try Font Finagler and that Terminal trick tomorrow (is late at night here in Brazil).

If nothing else works, I'll try to archive and install Tiger again...
Thanks!

Re: Office Mac 2004 crashes Exception: EXC_BAD_ACCESS - 02/13/13 06:19 AM

Font Finagler didn't do much good either.
Cleaned 8 system fonts - still the same.
Cleaned all fonts (about 70+) - nothing changed.

Archive and install it is... frown

If you do a Google search using

update_prebinding: too many errors

it gives a lot of hits. It seems it was caused by either a security update or Safari install.

Maybe try running the 10.4.11 combo update, the larger one, not the smaller 10.4.11 update, before reinstalling?

Re: Office Mac 2004 crashes Exception: EXC_BAD_ACC - 02/13/13 09:38 AM

No security updates or Safari install were made in the last 20 days, so I don't think that was the issue.
Only thing it could be - because it's browser-related - is that I was trying some browsers to see which one is best for my PPC. Maybe some of them made that, I don't know...

Anyway, already archived/installed and everything works just fine now.
It was easier and faster than I thought, only thing is that I have to re-do some configs but that's minor.
Thanks for the help.

Glad you're back and running.

BTW since you're on a PPC try this patch for Flash to make v.11.5 work on PPC. The instructions are included in the download links.





11.1 (I think) download if the 11.5 version above doesn't work for you.

It is the same video but he changed the download link version in his 'About" section. Make sure you hang on to the older plug-in case the new one doesn't work right.

It does work, I already tried it for some time.
Too bad TenFourFox doesn't support plugins, so everytime I want to play Avengers Alliance on FB I have to logon with Safari... :p
