Microsoft Word is tring to install microsoft word again

Q: Microsoft Word is tring to install microsoft word again

alright my problem is that i have already used microsoft word 2000 for awhile now and its been fine, no problems whatsoever then about week ago it started doing a lot of crazy stuff when i opened it. this happens every single time. i open it and it states that
it is preparing to install microsoft word 2000 (i already have it installed) then it states that it must gather the required information. At first i thought it was an update so i decided to let it continue. when it was finished it said that "the feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removable disk that is not availible. please insert the microsoft word 2000 disk and hit ok" alright the thing was it wasn't an update. and i couldn't find my word CD because it hasn't asked for one ever since i installed it. I then hit cancel and everything went away and about a minute later my microsoft word 2000 came up and it had no updates and was functioning fine but it was going about half the speed it usually does. Other than that there were no other problems and i continued with my work. The only thing that really bugs me is that this entire process takes about 5 minutes every time I start up... so its kinda of a pain... is there any way to get rid of this? thx to all... Peace Out

After recent full system recovery caused by one or more virus, I am unable to re-install Microsoft Word or Word Perfect on my Compaq Presario, which has Windows XP. Microsoft Word will sometimes start the process but then just stops, giving no indication of what steps to take next or what the problem is. Word Perfect seems to start the process each time but then gets hung up with updating what it describes as the SHFolder.dll. Have waited as long as 20 minutes for this update. The screen does show activity but it just never seems to get done. I cannot take the installation process past that point.

Any suggestions on how I can correct or cure this problem?
 

A:Unable to install either Microsoft Word or Word Perfect

Check here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q303437/ for some help - probably the .dll is either corrupt or the path not recognized. Depending on whether or not this page helps, either fix it with that or lookup SHFolder.dll. on the net and download a new copy from somewhere like http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?shfolder and install it.

Does anyone noe weather vista Microsoft word support the old formated ones? Or is there any plug-in needed to support?

A:Does Vista Microsoft Word Support Old Format Microsoft Word?

I'm assuming you're talking about the new office 2007? meaning word 2007?

If that is the case, then yes it does run older versions of word. In the sense that if you have a word document that was made and saved in Word 2003 it would work in 2007.

Just like when you make something in word 2007 you are able to save it as a Word 03-07 document so it works on both versions of Microsoft Word.

I have created in Microsoft Word 2003 on an XP OS some lengthy documents. I created them using a view setting of 150%.

I sent them to my employer, who is using Windows 98 and Microsoft Word 97. My boss opened them with his system and they displayed on the screen at a view of 200%. He wants me to send him Word documents that he can open from the CD-R that I send that will automatically display at 100% view on the screen so that he does not have to set the view for each document as it displays.

So what is the answer.

Is there a way that I can save my created documents so that when my boss gets them on a CD-R that they will open on his system at a view setting of 100%.

Is there also a way that his system can be set to default to 100% in reading from the CD-R.

My boss does not want to copy the documents to the system hard disk from my sent CD-R, preferring to read and copy directly from the CD-R that I send, so that the original documents will not accidentally be changed.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hard to explain but here goes:

When I have a sentence that I want to move to the middle of the page, I place the curser to the left of the word and try to push it right by hitting the space bar and nothing happens.

This is only when the word is all the way to the left of the page.

Is there some type of formatting that would allow this to be free so that I can push words forward??

Hi

Here is a strange one. I have Microsoft Word 2000 on a computer running Windows XP SP3. I just began having a problem opening documents directly in Word. The documents will open but they are not right. For example, I have a document that is passworded out. Within Word, the document will open, but it does not ask for a password, and the contents of the document come up scrambled. Here is an excerpt of what it looks like:

+??+???7k'?p%V9
q|?F
t?Uzjikvn?nnU
b*79g?CAg?
t???c\0B?~I?_sD
l%*~tL
T,?*O?>.???l?C?
Ab/hA>[S?

This goes on for 20 pages.

However, if I go into Windows Explorer and open the document by double clicking on it there, it correctly asks for the password and opens fine. Weird, no?

I tried opening other documents from Word that do not have passwords. They open, but the documents include a bunch of formatting instructions that usually remain hidden. But from Windows Explorer they open fine. Here is an example:

Document opened with Windows Explorer

I recently purchased an ASUS Windows 8.1 64 bit computer.  I transferred my Microsoft Works Version 8.0 word processor and spreadsheet files from my old computer onto the new computer.  I just purchased the Microsoft Office 2013 Home and Student Edition (64 bit version) from an online vendor and installed the software onto my new computer. 
 
I have no problems opening my Works spreadsheet files in Excel.  However, when I attempt to open a Works word processor file in Word, I get gibberish.  I did some research online and found out that there is a Microsoft tool called Works 6-9 Converter which allows one to open Works files in Word.
 
I downloaded the Works 6-9 Converter tool from the Microsoft Support website and installed it on my PC.  However, when I subsequently attempted to open a Works word processor file in Word, a dialog box appeared with the error message "Word cannot start the converter Wks9Pxy.cnv" and the file did not open properly (i.e., I got gibberish).
 
I did a little more research online and found out that uninstalling the Works 6-9 Converter, then downloading and installing the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package, and finally reinstalling the Works 6-9 Converter may correct this problem.  I followed these steps, but unfortunately when I attempt to open a Works word processor file in Word, I get the same error message and the file does not open properly. ...

I'm getting messages of: is not a valid win32 application, for the first file, and the second file it just loads the service pack, and the third file Windows need to know who created the file. I have windows look it up on the internet but it wants to download a file like "PC Mighty Max" to correct the problem. Should I do this?

Both should be 117.7 MB in size. If neither of them are the correct size, you will need to re-download the SP3 file here.

The third file [office2003sp3-kb923618-fullfile-enu.exe.part] is an incomplete download attempt of the Office 2003 SP3 file. This is indicated by the .part extension.

You indicate that the second file " just loads the service pack." This exactly what it is supposed to do. Did you receive any errors during the install? Did the Office 2003 CD install without errors?

Doing a fix for a friend, and this is a new one for me. Her primary concern was that all of a sudden, when she opens word, she can not type anything in a document. I tried it, and nothing happens. It opens like normal, and when you try to type, it is like the keyboard is locked out.

I found a few things on google that I tried to no avail. There was a .DLL patch I did, and I also removed so registry keys.

It is Win XP home, with 256 ram, and a P4 1.7 Proc. The version of word was installed with a software bundle that included Microsft Works.

I uninstalled Word, and reinstalled Office 2000 PRO, and the same thing is happening...

Dear Forum,

I'm just starting to learn about Microsoft Word 10, which was bundled within an Office 10 package. I'm noticing that as I type a document, the Word Count dialog box at the bottom left remains frozen at 0. When I right-click on it, it opens, but the Word Count is checked within it. So, it's not turned off or anything. I need to limit what I'm writing to a certain number of words. I have to complete this thing within the next day or so. Unexpected need for a troubleshooting solution.

Why isn't my word count going up? And the Characters seem stuck at 67. Maybe I clicked something I shouldn't have. Otherwise, I need some guidance here. Thanks. Steve

Hi guys, first off I haven't been here for help in years literally this was the first place I thought of because a few years ago many generous people helped me solve my problem, this place is awesome. Please pardon me as I am only decently literate with computers but try my best.

Ok I am trying to solve an annoying problem for my parent's computer. My dad was typing a normal document in Microsoft Word (OS is XP with System Pack 2, and it is Word 2002) and he said that just yesterday for the first time, after typing for maybe a half hour, a window would pop up with a "runtime error" and it would freeze untill he clicked ok on it, and it would then shut down loosing all his work that he didn't save.

So I got on the computer and opened Microsoft Word, and was able to duplicate the problem time after time but not every single time. When I simply open word, then click to close Word, the box appears, and he verified it is the same box he saw. It says exactly as follows, no more, no less, and every time reads the same -

I have decided to try to fix a problem on my computer with the Microsoft Fix It thing that Microsoft lets us use. Unfortunately, it not only did nothing for my problem (Which I no longer care about), but it did something to Microsoft Works Word Processor, the one that comes with windows. I already tried a system restore, but I've had it for too long so my restore didn't go back far enough.

The error itself says, "Works cannot access one or more files it needs to run the Word Processor. The files may have been renamed, deleted, or moved. Try reinstalling Works, and then starting the program again." Unfortunately I don't know if it has actually been moved or deleted and I don't know how to reinstall it. Any help would be great.

Word itself does not send (or receive) e-mail messages. You may configure Word to be your e-mail editor, but it still requires an e-mail program (such as MS Outlook) to send messages.

You can send e-mails from within Word by using File, Send To, Mail Recipient (or Mail Recipient as Attachment), but this still uses Outlook to do the sending and receiving.

Isnt there some sort of way that I can convert the coding, to something I can read??

Ive attached a copy of the doc. Any help would be great.

The header suggests it was an .rtf file, however I would suggest that the formatting of the drive has corrupted the file.

Thats hardly surprising as a format would seriously compromise any file, but the recovery software has obviously had a good try at recovering it.

The file is not recognised by my Word version, trying all the common Word file formats.

About a week ago I installed DivX to view movies. I uninstalled it within 10 minutes of installing it because I wanted to watch a movie but it was too large for what DivX allowed...so I saw no point in keeping it. Along with DivX, a Google search box was installed and I suppose it's new since I've never seen the likes of it before. Anyways, I deleted it and now when I click a link on a word document it says "This operation has been canceled due to restrictions on this computer" but I don't remember messing with any operation that could have caused this. I have firefox and it works just fine...not one single problem with it. I would really appreciate it if someone could help me with this...pretty please...it's really annoying to copy+paste the link into a tab then go back to my document etc. etc. etc....

Please help me

See if Windows System Restore can help - choose a restore point prior to DivX installation -

A couple of days ago I posted the following question:

?I have written several documents in Word from the Office 1997 Suite. I want to burn these documents to some CD's which I would then mail to people who are interested in the subject I have written about. One of these documents/files is about 350 pages in length.

My question is this: Some of the people who receive my CD's may not have Word installed on their computers. Will they be able to read the Word documents even though Word is not installed on their computers??

In reply to my question I was told that Notepad which comes with all versions of Windows will open most Word files, but maybe not images and tables. Several people recommended including a portable version of OpenOffice on my CD. This is a free open-source Office suite. http://portableapps.com/apps/office/openoffice_portable

As suggested I did download ?OpenOffice_Portable_2.2.1_en-us.paf.exe? to my CD, but I?m not sure what to do next. How is this used to read the Word files that are also on the CD? Should I open the file on the CD, before mailing it. Should I leave the unopened .exe file on the CD and expect it to work automatically for the person receiving the CD ? Or, should I instruct the recipient to download the .exe file to a folder in his hard drive. If the latter, should it go under Program Files or where?

Hi Robert

Have you considered using the PDF format. You can download free convertors, such as - this. Most people will have Adobe Acrobat reader on thier computer, if they don't a free download is available from Adobe - here
Using this format will also stop anyone editing your documents easily.

Alternatively just burn a copy of the Open Office .exe file to each CD and add a ReadMe First Note pad document explaining what to do if they don't have MS Word.

But its being weird.

When typing it is slow, the letters not appearing on the page until i stop for a second. Then they appear, with volumes of mistakes.

Also when trying to use the tool bar menus (such as the spacing selector) the menu gives the pre-drop image (faint image JUST before it actually shows its self) and stops, no menu.

My grandson somehow uninstalled the file or dll needed to install his Microsoft Word 2007 (I think thats the version), It was not installed on the computer, it was there but not installed cause it was not needed until now. Anyway, He is into making his Mario game on the computer which he has downloaded several programs to do this and he is good at it. He needs the Microsoft Word to add words to the game which he cannot do now. Do not want to reinstall new system as there is no backup disk on the computer and besided it would remove everything on his computer now. Is there any MIcrosoft site where I can just download Microsoft Word without paying (freebee)? Don't want the whole Microsoft thing, only word. On the other hand, could I not just find my Microsoft word on my computer, send it to a pencil drive, then install it on his computer? Don't really want to buy the whole thing just for one program. He is using Windows XP. or is there another program out there that might work just as good, don't know if only Word will work with the programs he has or not. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Hi all.

I have windows vista home premium and microsoft word student 2007 edition.
I am copy and pasting some various articles from the internet to use as quotes in an essay I have to complete.
The problem is, when I copy and paste from the website, the font stays the same as what it was when I got it from the website, so I have to change the size and style every time in word.
Is their a way I can format the word document, so no matter what the font looks like before copying and pasting, it will still look the same in microsoft word?

Basically I want to be able to copy and paste from specific websites without having to re change the size and style in word, I want word to do it automatically, I never used to have this problem.
I have a table that I copy and paste to, so is their a way to format the table so all font that goes in is the same?
Thanks all.

If im reading your problem correctly, when you copy and paste from a website it is not in the same format as the document you are writing. It is possible to only paste text without formatting by default by going to the office button in the top leftThen clicking word options.Then selecting advancedThen find the copy and paste section that looks like the picture below and change it to text only.hope that's what you wanted.

Hi everyone first time poster here.

I am having a problem with Word documents in Microsoft Word XP - over the last few weeks with all my Word documents when i go to close one of them it asks me if i want to save the changes to the document and that is fine however it know keeps asking if i want to save the change to the letter.wiz.

I havent made any changes to the settings in Word but it is constantly asking about the change to letter.wiz. The OS on the pc is XP SP3.

Also i have copied some of the files to a pc that has O/S XP SP3 but Word 2003 and this message about letter.wiz does not appear.

Is there a setting that is causing the message to appear on the original pc?

If anyone can offer any tips or advice that would be greatly appreciated

Good Day,

I recently graduated school in a network administration course and have found myself as the on call administrator for a windows 2000 network. The network is using DFS to replicate files across 4 servers, in case that information will help with the solution I need.

The problem is that one of my users should be able to edit all the documents in a folder, while no one else is able to. I have set the permissions on the folder allowing her group modify permission to the folder, while all other users have only "Read & Execute" "List Folder Contents" and "Read" Before this morning the documents were set to read only to ensure that users cannot edit them. I am finding however that the person who should be able to edit the documents cannot do so when another user has a copy of the file open.

For now, we're just having her call the user that has an open copy of the document and tell them to close it so she can make changes, but I'd like for her to be able to make changes when she pleases, regardless of who else is reading the document at the time. Has anyone else encountered this problem? Anyone got a work around for it?
 

A:Microsoft Word

Hi,
Does the person allowed to edit the document get a dialog box in Word asking them if they want to open a read-only copy? If so, then it means that someone else has a copy open. Permissions on Windows unfortunately don't work with Word, meaning that even if someone can't actually save an edited document, just opening it will lock the document, not allowing anyone else it edit it either. This is just a limitation of Word. A quick option may be not to allow anyone else to open it if that is possible - either that or save a local copy, edit it and copy it back to the server.

Hope this helps

if you can't see word on the list, youy have to use the 'browse...' button, and navigate to the word program (winword.exe), probably somewhere in your c:\program files\microsoft office folder (or similar, i don't have it installed here right now).

Hello,

I am writing a program that opens up many "read only recommended" Word documents, makes changes to them and then saves them.
The part I am having difficulty with is "skipping" the read only recommended dialog box (and opening the document as read - write).

My code for this part of the macro is

Dim PathToUse As String
Dim i As Long
Dim myDoc As Word.Document

PathToUse = "P:\My_Documents\"

On Error Resume Next
Dim Subfolders As Boolean

With Application.FileSearch
.NewSearch
.LookIn = PathToUse
.SearchSubFolders = True
.FileName = "*.doc"
.MatchTextExactly = True
.FileType = msoFileTypeAllFiles

If .Execute() Then
For i = 1 To .FoundFiles.Count
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Set myDoc = Documents.Open(.FoundFiles(i), WritePasswordDocument:="xxxxxxxxxx")
Am I correct in thinking that the IgnoreReadOnlyRecommended cannot be used as an arguement in the last line?
And if so is there another method I can use?

Many thanks in advance,

I was typing a letter today in Microsoft Word 2000. All the letters in the left-hand margin were capitalized, even in the middle of a sentence. I typed them as lower case letters and as soon as I hit the space bar, they changed to caps. I had to go back and change all of them to lower case. My son and I checked all the settings, but could not find the problem. Any help would be appreciated. I'm sure we missed something.

You know when you know what you want to do but then can't do it? Yeah, that is what is happening to me right now. So I have seen some pages that have been typed that have like lets say a paragraph and then a thin black line separating it from the next paragraph. That was a terrible example but that is all I can think of right now. So I want to have one of those thin black lines on the paper I am attempting to type right now. Any help would be totally appreciated... if anyone knows what I am talking about!! Thanks!

Welcome to the forum. I am Ricardo Montabon and this is Tatu. He will babble something about de plane de plane.

There are a couple different ways to accomplish this. One way is via "Format">>"Borders and Shading" from the menu bar and add a border underneath the paragraph that are inside of. You can also add a new paragraph underneath the the paragraph that that you want to add a border to and type 3 underscores (shift+minus) and then hit enter to get the same effect.

Hi I have a microsoft word question, although I am not sure whether this is the right place to ask it. My issue is that I lost part of a document on which i had been working for a long time. I had to undo a few formatting things, but I accidentally pressed undo too many times without noticing. I then proceeded to make a few more changes when I realized that I accidentally got rid of my last paragraph by undo-ing. since made more changes I couldn't redo it again. is there any way I can get back all of the work that I lost? Also if this is the wrong place to ask this question, could you point me in the right direction? thanks!

Is there anyway to save the desktop in Word 97, so that when you open Word, everything is the same as when you closed it, even if you turn your computer off? I haven't seen anything that will accomplish that feat. I have some other programs on my computer that will save the desktop. Sure would save a lot of time. Thanks.

desktop??
do u mean the layout?

the menus should not change after a reboot and if u want to save the layout, word saves it in normal.dot file

find where u hae it on HD, copy it to another folder u will remember for backup

set word the way u like it and save it as normal.dot in the folder u found the original in

if desktop is something else then ignore what i said but do explain what u mean by it
