Office 2013 & Fusion (Mac) black screen issues (solved) 1


Yesterday I ran into a little problem while working with Office 2013 in a Fusion box on my Mac. The screen turned black while running any of the Office 2013 applications. There are 2 solutions :

Solution 1 : Disable 3D acceleration in Fusion

Solution 2 : Disable hardware acceleration in Office

I prefer the last solution, disabling the acceleration only in Office 2013. Found no noticeable difference afterwards although.

    Thank you! I was having issues on Windows 7 with my Office 2013 applications, where random menus and panes would be black and I had to resize the window for them to display correctly for a while. Your tip about disabling the hardware acceleration seems to have fixed it! Yay!!!
