Recent Win 7 update kills MS Office 2013

For over 2 years, I have used VB on my Macbook Air with the VM being Windows 7. I loaded Office 2013 on the VM when it became available. It worked fine until a couple days ago, when I did an MS Win 7 update and now Office gives an error msg when I try to open any office product (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc. all die). There appears to be some incompatibility between the most recent Win 7 update and running Office 2013 under the VM. MS Project 2013 works just fine, as do Primalscript, Acrobat Pro, Bitvise SSH Client, etc. Any ideas?
