FIX: Word could not create the work file. Check the temp environment variable.

FIX: Word could not create the work file. Check the temp environment variable.

Word creates several temp files while editing. Some are optional, but some are required. If one of the required ones is not created, it will cause Word to be unstable, as you have seen.

There is not a single cause, so you have to look at several possible fixes for the problem:

Word could not create the work file. Check the temp environment variable
Word could not create the work file. Check the temp environment variable.

Short guide to solve this:

  1. Press Windows + R

  2. Type in Regedit
  3. Search for this key (copy/paste it in Regedit)
    ‘Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders’
  4. See what the value for Cache is, It has to be %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCacheIf the value is different, copy/paste the value I mentioned. 
  5. Click OK
  6. Now Re-start your device and see if it worked.

If my solution doesn’t work for you, here is a different solution from the Microsoft website:

To resolve this issue, create a new folder on your computer.

  1. Start Windows Explorer
  2. Go to this folder location (Copy/paste it in Windows Explorer): C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows
Word could not create the work file. Check the temp environment variable
Word could not create the work file. Check the temp environment variable

Create a new folder  (See screenshot) named INetCacheContent.Word.

EDIT: Searching some more on this issue I found a forumpost where someone has centered all info see Microsoft:

If you have a “Preview” window turned on in the selection window , try closing the preview view before selecting the file name.

I doubt this tip. It claims that Word is using the “Internet Temporary Folder”. I think that is flat out wrong.  It links to Q211632 which explicitly mentions the TEMP folder. That is a different location

Well, one of the questioners responded and said it worked. So who am I to argue with success. I really would like to know how/why it worked.

*********************

I just fixed this issue (hopefully not just temporarily) by increasing the disk space to use for temporary internet files:

  1. From Internet Explorer, go to Tools/Internet Options
  2. On the General tab, click the Settings button under “Browsing history”
  3. Increase the “Disk space to use”. It was at 512 for this machine, and I expanded it to 1024 MB
  4. Click OK to exit

This was a Win7 machine using Office 2010

*********************** 

I may have a solution here for it. When you click on “add attachments” and the window opens up for you to select the file, right before selecting the word file click on the box on the top right corner which will close the preview panel of the selected file. Now try to upload the file, you shouldn’t get the annoying pop-up message anymore. Hope this helps! =

Word could not Create Work File. Check Environment Variable

Follow the steps in this trouble shooting tip: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555220

  • Disregard the Symptoms and start with Method 3. For Word 2007 change the following:
    1. 1.    Click the Office Button, click Word Options and in the Trust Center settings, click the Trust Center Settings button
    2. 2.    In the Macro Settings, select “Disable all macros with notification”
  • For steps 4-6, you’ll find the options noted on the Trusted Locations or Trusted Publishers tab
  • For Method 4, use this link for the Process Explorer:
  • http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx
  • In order to provide any additionally ideas we need to know the outcome of:
    • if the error continues to occur after starting Word using the /a switch, and if it doesn’t
    • if you’ve worked through the trouble shooting articles and tried everything suggested — even if you think a trouble shooting step may not be applicable

Note: Outlook 2013/2016 use Word as their text editor, so outlook fixes can also potentially work for Word.

Found solution to the problem.  I uninstalled the Outlook update KB2509470 and was able to print again.

  • First, close Outlook.
  • go to Control Panel.. then System and Security.. then Windows Update.. then View Update History (on left panel)..
  • find in the list the Outlook 2007 update KB2509470..
  • select it..
  • click on Uninstall
  • Messages will look like it is “installing” but in fact it is not – – it does the uninstall.

Upon completion, was able to print and do print previews from Outlook with no problem.

FIX: Skype the server is temporarily unavailable error

Can’t sign in to Skype for Business
The server is temporarily unavailable. if the problem continues, please contact your support team.

I’ve encountered this issue several times and I managed to solve it with the below options. There are 2 issues that can cause this what I know of, and a third option you could use to troubleshoot the problem.

The first is IPv6 

Skype for business traffic can go over IPv6, but it needs to be enabled on your tenant. Make sure to check if your network only goes over IPv6 and if your tenant is enabled voor IPv6. Otherwise make sure to S4B goes over IPv4

  • Check your network adapter if only IPv6 is enabled and re-enable IPv4.
  • Do a NSLOOKUP to sipdir.online.lync.com and see if it goes over IPv6 only yes or no.

Skype for Business and IPv6

Microsoft will enable IPv6 for Skype for Business at your request in the public multi-tenant cloud and in Office 365 Government G1/G3/G4/K1 subscriptions. After it’s enabled, if the program that you use to connect to Skype for Business supports IPv6, it will use IPv6 by default. If you want to control communications to Skype for Business, use the IP address ranges in Office 365 URLs and IP address ranges.

Please be aware IPv6 is not available in all regions and Microsoft may not be able to activate it for your Tenant at this time.

Source: Microsoft

The second is MSOIdentityCRL regkey

I did not find this solution myself, that was Gnawgnu on his blog. He got the solution from the Microsoft support team after they had tried multiple resolutions from Microsoft.

After having tried multiple Microsoft provided resolutions of deleting Lync profiles, temporary folders, cryptography keys, accountprofile.dat, delete sign-in info, etc., their support team had us kill the Lync process completely and then delete the whole HKCU\Software\Microsoft\MSOIdentityCRL key. and then start up Lync. And then it started working properly and we replicated the fix on the remaining affected profiles.

Source: Gnawgnu

For those not so familiar with Registery Editor I’ve made a small tutorial with screenshots.

Right click start and click on Run or press Windows + RCan't sign in to Skype for Business The server is temporarily unavailable. if the problem continues, please contact your support team.

Copy the register key: HKCU\Software\Microsoft\MSOIdentityCRL 
And paste it in Registery Editor.

Can't sign in to Skype for Business The server is temporarily unavailable. if the problem continues, please contact your support team.
Can’t sign in to Skype for Business The server is temporarily unavailable. if the problem continues, please contact your support team.

Can't sign in to Skype for Business The server is temporarily unavailable. if the problem continues, please contact your support team.
Can’t sign in to Skype for Business The server is temporarily unavailable. if the problem continues, please contact your support team.

Try to log on Skype for Business again and see if it worked.

The third option is the Microsoft Connectivity Test

If neither of these two solutions solved your problem you can also try to run the Microsoft connectivity test.
This should give you the reason why your S4B is not connecting.

Can't sign in to Skype for Business The server is temporarily unavailable. if the problem continues, please contact your support team.

Hey there!

So this has been on and off issue for a few years ever since Microsoft changed the way input data is accessed from peripherals. It’s something that is constantly being looked at and seems to come and go. Usually it kicks up after a major Windows update or game client update. 

In most cases the following steps should help reduce or eliminate the issue but do make sure if you have not already done so, to report on this in the Bug Report Forums as well. 

1. Make sure you have all Microsoft and Hardware driver updates. Not just mouse drivers either, Video Drivers can have an impact on this issue as well. (AMD users may need to stick with the driverset prior to 17.2.1 due to other issues)

http://support.amd.com/en-us/download
https://downloadcenter.intel.com/
https://geforce.com/drivers

2. Toggle DPI Scaling in Windows.

Right click on an empty spot on your desktop, Choose Display Settings.
Under Customize Display you should see a slider to adjust the size of text, apps and other items. It should be at 100%.

3. Lower the Polling rate of the device if possible to under 1000. This should at least reduce the frequency of the issue for now if not eliminate it.

4. Reduce the sensitivity of the mouse either in its custom software or in windows and compensate via the other way. (IE if you reduce the sensitivity in Windows, increase it in the app or vice versa. See if that helps)

5. Try toggling the hardware cursor option in WoW under system options.

6. Temporarily uninstall any custom software such as Corsair Utility Engine, Logitech Gaming app, RoG Game First, Razer Synapse and the like. 

7. Try toggling between fullscreen windowed and windowed fullscreen see if that affects the issue at all.

8. Now this one seems weird but it has been an issue with multiple monitor setups specifically due to how the raw input data is handled by Windows when moving the move across monitors. Temporarily disable all but your main monitor. If this stops the issue and if possible, try changing the connection type for the monitor in question, IE: Swap between HDMI, DisplayPort or DVI. See if the issue goes away on any of those different connections.

Now again if none of this solves the issue, we are looking at it and I recommend posting in the bug report forums to help our QA teams dig into this further.

FIX: file may have been changed by another user since you last saved it. In that case, what do you want to do?

We’ll be going through: “file may have been changed by another user since you last saved it. In that case, what do you want to do?”file may have been changed by another user since you last saved it. In that case, what do you want to do?

tutorial – File may have been changed by another user since last saved it
  1. Click start and open run (or Press windows + R)
  2. Type in Regedit
  3. Go to the following key:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Excel\Options
    **** For Office 2013 use 15.0  ****
    **** For Office 2010 use 14.0  ****
  4. You can copy paste the key in the top:
    file may have been changed by another user since you last saved it. In that case, what do you want to do?
  5. Click Edit > make a new DWORD Value
  6. Name it QFE_Saskatchewan
  7. Right click QFE_Saskatchewan and click modify
  8. Type 2 for value.

From Microsoft:

When you type this value, Excel will always flush the file cache before the program obtains the time stamp. (This should resolve the problem most of the time.) Or, type 1 to have Excel disable the time stamp check and suppress the dialog in every case.

Note We do not recommend disabling the time stamp check.

If this does not fix it for you, please try this:

We noticed this issue after we applied the SP2 for Office 2010/Win7 Pro SP1 environment.  The registry fix did not work for me either.  Before we attempted to roll-back the update.  It was noted in another forum that this issue occurred on a spreadsheet that was created in the older .xls format and/or had macros. So in our case, we did a SAVE AS a .xlsx file on the affected spreadsheet and that seems to resolve the issues we are having.  

If this didn’t solve your issue, but you’ve found a different one for “file may have been changed by another user since you last saved it“. Please comment below!

FIX: Can’t find the name of Intel ICD OpenGL driver

The error you’re receiving is: Can’t find the name of Intel ICD OpenGL driver

In this post I’ll explain to you how you can solve this issue.

This alert may occur for various activities on your laptop. As an example, I found the alert while trying to update my NVIDIA driver from the NVIDIA Control Panel. The message has “clearly” nothing to do with NVIDIA if  it says Intel, Don’t you think?

No, it was not a NVIDIA problem for me, but updating the driver uses the built-in intel video card.

If this fails, you can try to download the driver manually from Intel.
Locate the driver’s name and download the correct driver.
Open the .exe and run the installation.
Restart the PC and see if this has helped.

If all of this failed, please leave a comment and I’ll see what I can do for you.

FIX: Deployment and application do not have matching security zones

I ran into the following error message while downloading a content search within Security & Compliance in Office 365.

“Deployment and application do not have matching security zones”

Deployment and application do not have matching security zones
Deployment and application do not have matching security zones

This is a generic error for all Microsoft Windows Applications (CSharp). So if you’re here due to another download or installation this could also fix it for you.

Deployment and application do not have matching security zones FIX

There was quite an easy fix for me:
I downloaded the rapport in Google Chrome.
It downloaded to my downloads folder and from there I tried to open it. Because you already downloaded it, it will try use your default web browser. Google Chrome is my default browser but it cannot cope with it. It will show you an error because it’s not using Internet Explorers security settings. Firefox actually gives the same error.

You should try downloading the export in Internet Explorer. This will download the application directly in your browser and your export should be succesful.

This could be the quick fix for you, but if not I suggest you’d go to codeketchup.blogspot.nl for more about this error.

Why would this not work from other browsers?

Like I already stated in the solution, Google Chrome, Firefox or any other browser does not use the IE security settings.
The application will try to check if your security zones match with his, and if there are no security settings it will throw in the error.

Many problems you encounter in while browsing can be solved by trying a different browser first. Every browser has it’s flaws and this is one of them for Chrome or Firefox.

Leave a comment if the issue keeps persisting. I will try to help you and see what I can do for you.
As I already recommended do not forget to take a look at: codeketchup.blogspot.nl
