The update also includes dozens of new emoji from Unicode 7 and 8, including taco, burrito, cheese wedge, unicorn head, middle finger, popcorn, and more. Or, we can always use our good, old Office 2011. I am forced to use the older version--Office 2011. The only difference I get is the pop up went from saying that its a developer issue, to now says that the application quit unexpectedly. I posed this question in the developer forums hoping someone might know anything. And when a command is not right on your fingertips it becomes a question: did I type all that right? I thought it was more widespread but apparently it is just me.
It solved none of the problems I mentioned and am struggling with. The key points are: 1 This is a question about Office 365, not Office 2016 which is a different product 2 My MacBook Pro 2009 cannot be upgraded from 10. If there is no attention to this issue, I will be forced to cancel my subscription to Office 365, and use only the older version, for which I have a legitimate purchased serial number for 3 Macs. If not, then boot into Recovery command+R , run Disk Utility, and apply First Aid to your boot partition, not the drive name itself. Many who use Outlook for email are unable to access their inboxes, and this particular issue affects both Office 2016 and Office 2011. But, I've heard about numerous problems re Microsoft Office 2016 in connection with El Capitan and that people aren't able to run Word or Excel.

There are some new features I am an unpaid volunteer and do not work for Microsoft. Crashes leaving you wonder about the state of your drive? If you are an El Capitan tester you should be telling Apple about the incompatibilities using the channels you were given when you installed the beta test of the operating system. Recently Word started to crash. Also, the change in the Disk Utility isn't a 'bug' or a 'fault' but by deliberate design - just because you don't like something doesn't make it automatically a bug no matter how much you'd like to stamp your feet and throw a temper tantrum. Ya, I've tried that a few times now using the above mentioned link of removing Office. The Office 2016 preferences list in your account is likely hosed. The whole office suite just bounces when I try to load a file.
Microsoft's been on a binge of fixing 2016 lately, so most of the bugs are gone now, but it does have some serious shortcomings. Yes, I tried this repeatedly to see if there was rhyme or reason. I'm still not sure what the rules are. You may need to reinstall the application. That said, I don't know what the strategy is going forward, while finally using modern code the suite is still 32-bit and absolutely unwieldy in install and update size.
I am an unpaid volunteer and do not work for Microsoft. Does anyone know if these problems have been ironed out for Mac El Capitan users? Now, try Office 2016 again, and see if it is working. Upon booting into normal mode, I get same results from Office with no application able to open up. As it stands, the whole suite still crashes, though things have progressed by leaps and bounds since the laughable instability of the early Office 2016 betas. Update: A Microsoft spokesperson has told MacRumors that a fix is in the works.
How do I get Office back on my Mac? The programs freeze when using them and then crazy. El Capitan also completely broke the OneDrive for Business sync client. I uninstalled 2016 office and went back to 2011. Split from this thread I have the same problem--office 365 --version 2016 has repeated crashes, especially in Word. MacRumors has received multiple emails from people having issues with Office 2016, and there are several threads about the problem on our forums. I have a personal Office 365 subscription and use it on my MacBook Pro 2009. Upon trying to open the program a pop up comes up saying that the application cannot open and to may be a developer issue.
Word, Excel, Outlook, and PowerPoint are crashing for many Microsoft users who have installed Office 2016, and Office 2011 users are also noticing problems with Outlook. Use Office 2016, flaws and all, instead. Tried looking for updates, but there were no new updates available. I would try and run the auto update program for Microsoft, but unfortunately I cannot open any of the programs at all to even get to that option. So rebooted into safe boot mode and was able to open every application in Office, so it does indeed work. Until there is a fix, we recommend people install the latest updates to Office 2016 for Mac using Microsoft AutoUpdate.
Clean install does not solve the vast majority of problems. Has anyone else experienced this problem? I use Outlook and Excel almost daily as well as Word and Powerpoint and none of them will even start on my computer. Then to document the problems for feedback to Apple. I am a tech professional, and cannot have the program crash constantly. Ya I've actually tried that thinking maybe something got misaligned in the root or library files or whatever, but haven't had any success so far. Office 2011 users were also experiencing issues with crashing and with a non-functional Outlook app, but Microsoft was able to fix those bugs with that was released on October 7.
For Pete's sake give developers a chance to adapt to the new operating system. Either way, the result has been the same. Barring that I'll have to wait and see if Apple comes out with a patch or something in the near future. This has happened 5 or 6 times. It is an entirely new operating system. I've read on here that some people are having issues with 10. At the very least, they weren't all on Microsoft's end.
