    Default Microsoft Word

    Every time I want to open "Word" I get Error 1706, which then goes on to talk about Prog files Office 11 SET UP. CHM
    I am trying to work with "Word" a lot and wasting a lot of time waiting for it to open. Any help would be much appreciated, thank you.

    There should be a repair option in the add remove...you may need the disc?

    Which addition of Word?
    ==========================
    Meantime take a look @ free Open Office Download....remember it is FREE too (open source )

    Watch the video

    Almost the same as MS Office but the names are changed for obvious reasons ...Word is called Writer ...Powerpoint is called Impress etc...Calc is Excel etc

    You can open MS office files in Open Office too

    Thank you for your response to my query. I am pretty sure that I don't have the disk, but I will certainly take a look at your links. Thanks again.

    The MS disc is not always needed if the installation files are on the computer....the repair should be able to find the installation files path or you can do a search for them...

    But... if you installed it later with a MS Office CD you might not be so lucky....unless you left a copy on the puter during the install

    You have a 50-50 chance of not needing the disc...good luck
    =====================================
    Personally, I like Open Office....but I am a Linux (open source) fan anyway

    abseh1,
    Thanks again for your assistance. I think that I am going to get the whole thing reconfigured. Damned computers, can't live with them, can't live without them!
    Thanks a lot.
