Solved: Microsoft Word (Office Professional Edition 2003) frequently closes

Q: Solved: Microsoft Word (Office Professional Edition 2003) frequently closes

Good afternoon people,

Firstly, I would like to say hello to everyone who've helped me in the past with my Access help. It's been a long absence with study commitments and such, but as is the purpose of this group, I would like to ask for some tech help:

The situation: Microsoft Word (as part of Office 2003 Professional Edition) frequently closes without user notification on my dad's laptop (Windows Vista Basic). It's recently started, and it interrupts his work. He says that the issue occurs when he minimises documents, but he didn't indicate a frequency of this occurrence. He also told me that once he successfully saves a document and closes Word, he then encounters issues when opening said document; it says that the file has been "corrupted" (I can't remember exactly what the dialog box says), and that the data can be recovered, or to proceed with opening the document. Data recovery doesn't work, and when he proceeds to open the document, Word returns "Program not responding" and "Critical error caused by the program" and other prompts of this nature, which then forces the program to quit.

I am aware that a similar problem is in the Microsoft Knowledge Base for Word 2003, but was last revised in 2004 (so covered only xp and 2000), and am not certain if this issue is the same for Windows Vista. It related to the "Handwriting Recognition" program.

Additionally, as always, there are a multitude of issues, problems and queries with Microsoft Word on this forum, so locating a post that is related to this issue would be quite the mammoth task.

Terribly sorry if this post may be a repeat of one from the past.

Appreciate help.

How many installs can you get with Office 2003 Pro and if you install it but reformat can you install it again?

I am having issues with installing Office 2003 Professional on my HP Pavilion Elite - Windows 7 64-bit machine which I just purchased. I understand that there has been some issues with the compatitablity from the 32-bit to the 64-bit verison but I have found sites that states Office 2003 is compatitable with Windows 7 and some people have had success installing it on their own 64bit machines. I have two other PCs (Gateway desktop and HP Laptop) which are running the XP 32bit operating system with this Gateway Distribution CD (bought it with my Gateway machine years ago) - Microsoft Office 2003 Professional Software. I was able to succesfully install Office on my HP laptop even when its a Gateway Distribution CD so I know that is not the issue.

The issue I have ran into is when I install it by by-assing the front-end installation process (opened the Office setup.exe file on the CD drive or even copied it to my HD) the Installshield program comes up and it starts the installation process. However, when it is performing the requested services an error pops-up stating the following "This verison of Office is not compatitable with your system" then closes out. Now, I have tried to run the setup program under Windows XP (Service pack 2 and 3) and neither works.

In addition, I have uninstalled the office 2007 trial software and any other Office viewer programs from my machine. However, I still have Microsoft Works 9.0 still installed because I wouldnt think it wou... Read more

Using Outlook 2003, Part of MS Office Professional Edition 2003, which has the capability of having multiple, separate & complete email addresses, each functioning in their own profile.

E.g. I open Outlook and it gives me a drop-down box to choose which email I want to go to, say email1 or email2.

Email1 has 2 "Contacts" areas defined.
1st problem is how to combine and synch these two. I don't want two.

Email2 as 1 "Contacts" area.
2nd problem is to combine the contacts from Email1 with Email2.

I thought these were *.pab files, but a search for *.pab comes up empty.
I do find multiple *.pst files

I'm having a strange problem with Microsoft Word 2003 SP3.

It only happens on new docs. I'm a writer and when I open ongoing projects in Word everything is fine, but when I open a new doc. my Page Setup doesn't work. If I set it to have 1" of space top, bottom and sides, it doesn't work on the top. My first line starts at the very top of the page.

Also, the ruler up the left side should be dark where that top inch of space should be, but it isn't because it's not working. I discovered a temporary fix in Page Setup by setting the top space to be 2" and the sides and bottom to be 1". However, even doing this I don't get the dark inch or so at the top of my left margin ruler.

I did a repair in ADD Remove Programs but it didn't change anything. It might be a corruption in Word because I have the same Office 2003, SP3 on my laptop and I've compared all the settings on both computers and they appear to be identical.

Has anyone here run into this problem, and do you think uninstalling and reinstalling Office might solve the problem?

Thanks in advance.

Just recently something has changed with my Microsoft Office Word 2003 app.

I'm a writer and I have always been able to drag my pages that I have written today to a folder in My Documents and the same file would stay on my desktop for immediate access later. I realize other may not work this way but it is how I prefer to work as it has become my habit

When I try to drag and drop it now, it drops into the My Documents folder but it no longer remains on the desktop.

Now, in conjunction with this problem, I have another new problem, which is that when I write a page of text in Word and save it to a My Documents folder it doesn't go there. Also when I save a picture to My Pictures as I've always done it won't be there when I look for it. Something is preventing me from saving things and I haven't a clue what it is. I have to open the My Documents folder and drag the Word text page into it. It's the only way I can save stuff for some reason.

Can someone please tell me how I can fix this problem?

Thank you in advance.

Strange to have problems after installation. In case you haven't done it:
Run Outlook.
Tools > Options > Mail format.
Check the format dropdown for whatever you want, I suspect plain text.
Next two checkboxes which refer to two possible Word2003 formats should be unchecked.

That depends on the options you made when you installed Office 2003. If you allowed it to upgrade Word 97, it will be gone most likely.

If you told it to leave Word 97 alone, it will still be there right now, and you should be able to access it.

Everytime I open any application (e.g. Internet explorer, Microsoft Word, literally anything) I get a pop-up window which says: 'please wait while Windows configures Microsoft Office Proffessional Edition 2003', and underneath a bar loads up the configuration. If i click cancel, it disappears and reappears instantly. I then have to click cancel another two times for the pop-up to stop bothering me. If i leave the bar to load, when finished it displays a window which says:

In 2013 Microsoft had a special offer to upgrade to Office 2010 using a download from their website and using a new numerical key. I have now purchased a new computer (and will be scrapping the old computer ) and would like to bring this Microsoft office 2010 from the old laptop to the new one. Since I no longer have the original disk can I just download the file from the Microsoft website? If I can which numerical key should I try to use?

I have a new computer.

I have 'Microsoft Office Word 2003' on my old computer and I wanted to place the program on my new computer except that I can't find the cd.

Is there a command that I can use, say in the "run" program to transfer all the files of 'Microsoft Office Word 2003' of to a thumb drive and transfer the 'Microsoft Office Word 2003' to my new machine?

A:Microsoft Office Word 2003 problem

I have seen several suggestions for dealing with this problem, some work for some people, others don't and
some of them are potentially destructive, in my opinion, therefore I do not propose to supply any links.

However, I will tell you that I had the same problem recently. I run Office 2003 Professional Edition and
downloaded the Office 2007 trial. It was not for me and I uninstalled it. My problems then started,
with these 'Please wait while Windows configures' messages.

I tried all the usual 'repair' methods, but the only thing which fixed the problem was a complete
uninstall and reinstall of Office 2003. That would be my only suggestion and in addition,
I left the setup files on my hard disk, when asked, because there are some features that are not
immediately installed by the program, even on a full install and it saves digging out the CD/DVD
whenever you come across these features. (Don't remember too clearly which ones, I think it
may have been in connection with Publisher).

I appreciate this may be stating the obvious. If you can find an easier method, which you trust,
good luck.

btw, I am assuming that your computer is virus, adware, malware and spyware free.
You should run something like Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpware if you haven't
checked recently; presumably you have a realtime antivirus scanner.

Hello there.

Microsoft office 2003 problem.
When starting microsoft word on vista ulitmate, there seems to be a problem

This will automatically shut down, saying there was a problem and is shutting down...
The other programs seem fine, Excel, powerpoint, etc.

I havent a clue what this could be, has anyone else had this problem.
In the top right corner of microsoft word it will say "Finalizing Installation" and then after you type a couple of sentences it will shut down on its own..

This is for a friend of mine, who had microsoft office put on when she bought the laptop of a friend, though she does not have the disk, so i wondered if this is an installation problem.

Would this be some sort of copy of microsoft office 2003, that was put on for her
She has only found this out now as her son needs to use word for school
( vista ultimate, 64 bit, sp2)

A:Microsoft office 2003/ Problem with Word

I assume that you're opening up Word from the Start menu here...

Open up the Start Menu and go to Word. Right-click on it. Open up its Compatability tab which is the third tab.

2003 is an XP product. Therefore, Word (and Excel and Access if they're 2003 versions) should be run in compatibility mode for "Windows XP (Service Pack 2)."

If this is not so, check the box and select Windows XP from the list to make it so amd OK the box to close it.

See if it runs now.

Hi all,
Its been a rough few days, I have been on-line with HP support because I was having problems with my HP Photosmart C4180 All-IN-One.
I did a stupid thing and downloaded Microsoft Office & Bookshelf (which is designed for Windows 95 and I have Windows XP) and of course I did not think this was going to cause problems. But it seems ever since I down loaded this program I have had problems with my HP Photsmart All-in-One. I did try to remove the Microsoft Office Professional and I thought it was gone but when I go to ADD/Remove programs it is still there and if I try to remove it again, I get an error that says " SETUP CANNOT ACCESS THE REQUIRED INITIALATION FILE 'C\MS OFFICE\OFFICE\SETUP\ACME.LST'.
The problem that I am having with my All-in-One is when I click on one of the HP programs it gives me an error message that states:
" The item "hpqdirec.exe" that this shortcut refers to has
been changed or moved so the shortcut will no longer work properly"
But of course depending on what program I click in HP it changes the item name indicated above.

Can someone please help me to remove OFFICE PROFESSIONAL because this is when all the problems started, also if you know why it would be saying " shortcut refers to has
been changed or moved so the shortcut will no longer work properly" when I try to access one of the HP programs, I would sooooo appreciate it.

Hey Guys,

I am getting a new computer next week with Windows 7. I have MS Office Student Teacher Edition 2003. I think I have one install left for it. My question is if I am able to install it successfully and do the product activation, will I get the Service Pack (MS Office 2003 SP-3) through Windows Update? Since Office 2003 is supported until April 8, 2014, I would assume yes that should not be a problem. I know I can also download the Office 2003 SP3 manually.

I don't want a newer version of MS Office, because I hate the ribbon. If I can't get MS Office 2003 to install and activate on Windows 7, I am getting Open Office.

I have spent at least six hours (probably longer) researching and attempting to install a recently purchased download version of Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus.

I spent a good deal of time uninstalling (completely) a previous, nag-screened unregistered, copy of Office 2010. I used the Microsoft Cleanup Utility. I ran several programs to clean up after all this, including Crap Cleaner.

Each time I go to install Office, I enter the key (#), and get the prompt saying that there is ERROR 1402. Setup cannot open the registry key.

I have done at least a dozen things to resolve this issue, including doing a diagnostic boot, with only essential services and processes running; disabled the firewall and virus protection; read of various other remedies, none of which has worked.

I have gone to regedit several time trying to change permissions of certain registry files. Some seem to change okay. Others will change, then when I click okay, the permissions resort back to what they were prior. Other things, like clicking certain boxes about inheritance, won't stick ticked. I find the whole permissions thing a nightmare.

My head is spinning. Is there a tried-and-true remedy for fixing this issue?

Another question: Does Microsoft provide free installation support for its Office products?

Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Hi, I recently formatted my Dell Inspiron Duo netbook, with Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit. I installed all of the software which I run on it without any problems.

When I try to update Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus (32bit) Windows Update only finds a few updates, and after they're installed it doesn't find anymore updates. It doesn't even find Office 2010 SP1.

{Note: I had no problems with other updates like Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 or other Microsoft updates.

I tried uninstalling Office 2010 and installing it again but nothing changed. The privacy settings which show up the first time you run an Office application I set it as "Recommended settings".

I also tried downloading Office 2010 SP1 (32bit) and when I tried to run it an error came up saying something like version mismatch (I presume that you need to install other updates before running the setup & I also tried to download an other update but the same error came up.)

I didn't have this problem before I formatted the computer.}

Hello folks! I have a "tight" question. I'm in search for two spellcheckers of Russian language. One I will use with my Office 2k3, and other one (another computer) with Office 2k7. I only find something in that regards on Microsoft's web page for $225 for 2K3 and $275 for 2k7, and that will change my whole interface to Russian, but all I need is to add a Russian spellcheck to both of my offices. Please help. Freeware is very WELCOME!
Thank you!

I have been able to successfully transfer Word Documents from Microsoft Word 2003 to Open Office Docs without any problems but I am unable to transfer a Word Document in the opposite direction. I.e.: from Open to Microsoft Word 2003
Can anyone help please?

A:Solved: open office/microsoft word

You got it save it as a Word Document in Open Office. If you opened it and then resaved it in Open Office it may have saved it as an Open Office file type instead of a Microsoft Word File Type. I know there is a way to make Open Office to default to saving as a Word Document. Just look thru the settings. So your first step to investigate is too see what file type OpenOffice is saving as by default.

When I exit MS Office 2007 Word a pane appears that says "Word has stopped working and will search for a solution" (which is never found) followed by "Word is re-starting." After the re-start, I'm able to exit Word without further messages or difficulty. This is more of a nuisance than anything else but I have the impression that the program (at least the version I have) may be somewhat unstable.

I've looked for a solution on the MS Support Web site to no avail and wonder if anyone else has had a similar experience with this program.

I'm running Microsoft Word 2003 on win 7. Program opens & closes very slowly (approx 15 sec).
I was told that this is a problem with the file, which needs to be renamed. I have tried several different methods to access the file but have not been successful. Through properties of documents and settings I was not able to access the folder.
Any ideas that can help me resolve this issue would be appreciated. Also, would renaming the file solve the slow start and close problem???

Can you double check that message?
Are you sure it does not actually say "Office update is unable to check for updates" ?
There is a big difference between the two.

I think I already know the answer to this but I will ask to be sure. I just obtained Office 2003 directly from Microsoft through their Partnership Program. I installed it on one of my test machines at home. I totally forgot about it needing to be activated. The main question is this. If I activate it on that machine...I will not be able to put it on my main computer right?? Basically I have heard that when you activate it, thats it, you can not put it on any other machine.

Thank for your time,


A:Office 2003 Professional

Basically correct.

Most "full versions" allow activation on the one PC, and will usually allow a second activation on another PC on the basis that you can have it on a portable (laptop) as well, on the understanding that they are not used at the same time. Read the EULA for your version.

There is no checking that the second activation is actually on a laptop and not a desktop though. So basically a full version should allow 2 activations.

There is a suggestion that the MS activation database is reset after about 4 months and a further activation could be made but that is not documented or proven.

is there a way to un-install and re-install office 2003 pro without having to spend time re-downloading those large updates?


A:Office 2003 Professional

Izzy, since you didn't get an answer from the experts, perhaps you can check if these are big (do you use dialup?). I just looked in Add/Remove programs, and for Office 2003 professional which I got in 2004, I have these:
KB907417, KB892843, ServicePack2, KB911961. I think they were cumulative, not sure. I do not recall them being particularily big or slow to download or install. Perhaps you can check the sizes. It might be funny if it took you longer to check that than actually do the upgrades. I don't know if there's a way for me to find out the sizes on my computer, because then I'd tell ya. Let's hope someone will pitch in.

I've developed this problem with Outlook where after composing an email and try to send I get an error message.

The header of the message box says Microsoft Office Word
and the warning message in the box says Interface Not Registered.

The receiving part of the program works okay and the rest of Office 2003 is working fine

I reinstalled the program but that didn't help !

Does anyone have any ideas or possible solutions?

If that fails to correct the problem:

key in or copy and paste in the Run box:

Hey folks,

I switched from 32-bit XP to 64-bit Vista and my Microsoft Office 2003 isn't working on Vista for some reason. Is this supposed to happen or is there something I can do or something that I can download to make it work with Vista by any chance??? Or is there nothing I can do to make Office 2003 compatible with 64-bit Vista? Do I absolutely *HAVE* to have Office 2007 for 64-bit Vista?

Thanks in advance, folks!!

I'm having problems with all programs in Microsoft Office 2003. Here's the situation...

6 months ago I took a computer class which taught the use of Microsoft Office 2007 programs. As a part of the class, we got a trial version of Microsoft Office 2007, which is supposed to last for 180 days.

A few weeks ago the trial period ended and I could no longer use Office '07. I uninstalled the trial software and wanted to go back to using Office '03.

However, now whenever I try to start any program from Office '03, I get a message box telling me it's beginning some kind of installer. After a minute of this box, I get an error message saying:

"This patch package could not be opened. Verify that the patch package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer patch package."

I downloaded and used the Windows Installer Clean Up Utility, but it didn't help. I can't run any of the Office programs, repair them using the installation CD, or even uninstall any of them. I'm running Windows XP Professional.

What are my options? Are there anyways to fix this problem?

well my cousin convinced my mom that she needed microsoft access so he brings over microsoft office 2000 and installs it... including everything im pretty sure, i wasnt here when it happened. but he installed word outlook excel powerpoint and access, but we already have the 2003 version of everything except access. and now the old microsoft outlook (2000) has taken over all email rights, as in the links from start menu and internet explorer. So is there a way to get rid of all of microsoft office 2000 except for access? Because when i tried uninstalling microsoft office 2000 it said are you sure you want to uninstall all components? so i wasnt sure so i clicked cancel, well hopefully that made sense, and please help!
