Well, we successfully completed our office upgrade to AutoCAD MEP 2014 today, and we are running into a very strange bug.
Opening any Microsoft Word file now attempts to launch the AutoCAD MEP 2014 - English installer. A window appears that says "Please wait while Windows configures AutoCAD MEP 2014 - English", followed by an error message which suggests running "SETUP.EXE" instead...
If I click through all of this however, Microsoft Word still opens normally.
Can someone tell me what is going on? Thanks!

Welcome to the community.
Hmm. At first glance I can only ask this:
1. Did you install with local admin rights? Do your users have local admin rights?
2. Are you using roaming profiles or redirecting profile folders like My Documents, etc. to another location (i.e. network folder?)
3. What version of Office are you using?
Sounds like all of your ducks are in a row. You might try logging in as a different user with admin rights and trying it 2-3 times. If it does not affect it over and over after repeated logins, then you're probably just looking at a simple profile rebuild.
