Office Live Workspace Update for Windows Vista

The Office Live Workspace Update installs three Windows Vista updates (KB945435, KB945145, KB933860) and one Office 2007 update to ensure optimal performance on Windows Vista when using Microsoft Office Word, Excel, and PowerPoint with Office Live Workspace. The update improves the performance of opening and saving Workspace documents from these Office programs. In some cases, the update also resolves problems with "Open from Office Live" and "Save to Office Live" functions of the Office Live Add-in. This update is only needed for computers running Windows Vista.

I have installed the Office Live Update on my Vista ultimate laptop. In Word the new menu items appear but if I try to open a word document from my Office Live workspace nothing happens. No OpenFileDialog appears. No error message. Just nothing happens.

Info: Previously an older version of Office Live Update was installed caused the OpenFileDialog behave very slow or freezing Word 2007 ... After the new update nothing the OpenFileDialog does not appear ....

I already successfully using Office Live on a Windows Server 2003.

Thanks for any hint to solve the Vista problem,
