Office Configuration Analyzer Tool (OffCAT) information

The Microsoft Office Configuration Analyzer Tool (OffCAT) provides a detailed report of your installed Office programs. This report includes many parameters about your Office program configuration. It also highlights known problems that are found when OffCAT scans your computer. For any problems that are listed in the report, you're provided a link to a public-facing article (usually a Microsoft Knowledge Base article) about each problem so that you can read about possible fixes. If you're a Helpdesk professional, you can also save the report to a file so that it can be viewed in OffCAT on another client on which the tool is installed.
