If you have the Office Live add-in installed and attempt to use it, you will receive an error:
“Connecting to the Microsoft Office Live Workspace beta failed due to an unexpected error. Try again later”
You may also receive this error:
“Microsoft Office Live Add-in Sign-in has encountered a problem and needs to close.”
These errors are expected, as Microsoft Office Live was discontinued and replaced with Office Web Apps on SkyDrive. The add-in will no longer work with Excel, PowerPoint, and Word. You can fix this problem by either going into the Control Panel and uninstalling the Microsoft Office Live Add-in or disabling the add-in from the Office application.
