It was shut down in 1996. In 1995 a decision was made to (officially) start licensing the Mac OS and Macintosh ROMs to 3rd party manufacturers who started producing Macintosh 'clones'. This was done in order to achieve deeper market penetration and extra revenue for the company. Microsoft Word – You cannot save while the file is in use by another process. Try saving the file with a new name. (Normal.dotm) I am not aware of any other process taking place but I respond with OK “Microsoft Word” interrupted logout. – To continue logging out, quit “Microsoft Word”. The Microsoft Office Installer should have an icon in the Dock, just right-click it and choose 'Quit' for hold the option key and choose 'Force Quit' then shutdown or run the installer again. I have had to do that a couple of times due to hangs during the Office 2013 install, although I did not do a shutdown, just force quit and run installer. Plist files can become corrupt when a Mac shuts down or restarts unexpectedly or when an app freezes or crashes. As a result, the app may not open. When you delete a bad preference file, your Mac creates a new plist file that contains all the app's defaults automatically. My problem seems severe. I can't quit from Word or shutdown Mac. The stupid message keeps appearing. I've tried to reinstall Endnotes. But no solution.

Devices with Windows installations created from custom offline media or custom ISO image might have Microsoft Edge Legacy removed by this update, but not automatically replaced by the new Microsoft Edge. This issue is only encountered when custom offline media or ISO images are created by slipstreaming this update into the image without having first installed the standalone Servicing Stack Update (SSU) released March 29, 2021 or later.
Note Devices that connect directly to Windows Update to receive updates are not affected. This includes devices using Windows Update for Business. Any device connecting to Windows Update should always receive the latest versions of the Servicing Stack Update (SSU) and latest cumulative update (LCU) without any extra steps.
Workaround: If you have already encountered this issue by installing the OS using affected custom media, you can mitigate it by directly installing the new Microsoft Edge from here. If you need to broadly deploy the new Microsoft Edge for business, see Download and deploy Microsoft Edge for business
Resolution: This issue is resolved. To avoid this issue, be sure to first slipstream the Servicing Stack Update (SSU) released March 29, 2021 or later into the custom offline media or ISO image before slipstreaming the latest cumulative update (LCU). To do this with the combined SSU and LCU packages now used for Windows 10, version 20H2 and Windows 10, version 2004, you will need to extract the SSU from the combined package. Use the following steps to extract the using SSU:

System and user certificates might be lost when updating a device from Windows 10, version 1809 or later to a later version of Windows 10. Devices will only be impacted if they have already installed any Latest cumulative update (LCU) released September 16, 2020 or later and then proceed to update to a later version of Windows 10 from media or an installation source which does not have an LCU released October 13, 2020 or later integrated. This primarily happens when managed devices are updated using outdated bundles or media through an update management tool such as Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) or Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager. This might also happen when using outdated physical media or ISO images that do not have the latest updates integrated.
Note Devices using Windows Update for Business or that connect directly to Windows Update are not impacted. Any device connecting to Windows Update should always receive the latest versions of the feature update, including the latest LCU, without any extra steps.
Workaround: If you have already encountered this issue on your device, you can mitigate it within the uninstall window by going back to your previous version of Windows using the instructions here. The uninstall window might be 10 or 30 days depending on the configuration of your environment and the version you’re updating to. You will then need to update to the later version of Windows 10 after the issue is resolved in your environment. Note Within the uninstall window, you can increase the number of days you have to go back to your previous version of Windows 10 by using the DISM command /Set-OSUninstallWindow. You must make this change before the default uninstall window has lapsed. For more information, see DISM operating system uninstall command-line options.
Resolution: This issue is now resolved when using the latest feature update bundles and refreshed media. Feature update bundles were released November 9, 2020 for Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) and Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager. Refreshed media was released November 3, 2020 on Volume Licensing Service Center (VLSC) and Visual Studio Subscriptions (VSS, formerly MSDN Subscriptions). For information on verifying you're using the refreshed media, see How to address feature update refreshes in your environment. If you are using or creating custom media, you will need to include an update released October 13, 2020 or later.
Note If you are updating to Windows 10, version 20H2, this is only resolved with the feature update bundle released November 9, 2020. Refreshed media is not yet available on VLSC or VSS. Refreshed media for VLSC and VSS will be released in the coming weeks to address this issue and another known issue that requires a media refresh. Please check the known issue here for the status of the remaining Windows 10, version 20H2 known issue.

“On my system, Word application stopped responding all of a sudden. So, I immediately saved the document, which I was working and then closed the Word application. But the file is saved with .asd extension, instead of .doc. Also, if I try to open the file I get an error that states, “Microsoft Word cannot open this file because it is an unsupported file type.” What is this ASD file? How can I recover contents of my Word document? Someone kindly help me.”
What is ASD or .asd file?
Before you know about ASD file, have knowledge of AutoRecover feature provided in Microsoft Word program.
AutoRecover is an inbuilt option provided in Microsoft Office suite, which pull the plug on data loss due to unexpected interruptions like power surge, generation of errors, application halt/crash, abrupt system shut down etc that may prevent you from saving the Word file in a right way. Still, it is not an alternative for Save option. So, AutoRecover aspect aids in safeguarding a Word file during sudden disaster, only if the file is saved throughout the process as well at end.
If Word is terminated/interrupted in middle of process, then the current document will be saved in AutoRecover folder (if it was saved frequently, also at end); only when AutoRecover option is enabled. You can find AutoRecover folder under this path- C:UsersAppDataRoamingMicrosoftWord (Windows 7 and above) and C:UsersApplication DataMicrosoftWord (Windows 7 and below).
And Auto-Recovered file will be named as
- AutoRecovery save of X.asd (X is name of opened file) in Win 7 and below
- ~Wra####.asd (#### is random number given by Windows) in Win 7 and above
So, ASD is your rescued Word file. This file contains replica of currently opened Word document.
How to open ASD file? Why it shows error?

If your Windows file association is all set then it links .asd file with respective program present in your computer to open the file, as soon as you double-click on it. If adequate program is missing then you need to install it.
