    hello guest !!

    thanks for posting in EALP.
    since you have installed microsoft office but when you are opening the word what exact error message is shown to you is not being stated by you so assuming that your word is not getting opened i am suggesting you the solution for the problem.

    1. first of all ensure that all of your office files are getting opened properly.
    2. also try to find that, do other office application have the same problem?? as your word have.
    3. if all of the application are showing the same error than your microsoft office has not been properly installed, or there is corruption in your office package.
    4. so just try to uninstall your present office and reinstall it.

    also do check the compatibility of your office file ie. wheather it is compatible with the present version of window or not.??
