Hi, I just turned on my computer and was trying to open Word 2016 and received this message "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142).  I searched Microsoft support  which provided a solution that required that I open an Office app to repair the issue.  But the issue is....I can't open and Office app!  This is crazy.  Does anyone have another way to fix this problem?  Thanks

Hello @Lrqkeys

Maybe a repair run will also do the trick. Have a look at this thread: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/word-will-not-open-winwordexe-error-0xc000014...

Cheers

@Rolf-42 Thanks. I got office running again
