This thread is resonating with my experience. Windows 7 (64-bit) w/ Admin privileges Office 2010 (32-bit) Installing Office for Maps v 2.1.2. Simply by clicking on the 'ESRI Maps' tab in either Excel or PowerPoint causes the program to crash. I've uninstalled and re-installed and rebooted. I've started with a blank spreadsheet and a rather tepid file that has 20 rows of data and some lat long values. I've unchecked my Adobe PDFMaker COM add-in, same result. It's the simple act of clicking on the 'ESRI Maps' tab that kills the program. Any troubleshooting tips would be greatly appreciated.
