    Windows 7 and Word 2000 problem

    Recently i have purchased a new desktop installed with windows 7 and after i finished with the installation. I installed all my stuffs including the MS office 2000. But to my surprise i found that all my Microsoft components were working except word 2000. Are there any compatibility issues with word 2000 in windows 7.

    Most probably the problem seems as you have not installed the office 2007 correctly on your system. Because as you have mentioned that the rest of the programs are working so i would suggest you to install the word 2000 application once again. Remove word 2000 from the control panel and thentry installing the application once again.

    The problem is caused 'by an add. In this case remove the modules using the following steps:

    1. Click Start> All Programs> Accessories> Run.
    2. Type "regedit" without quotes and click OK
    3. Navigate to:


    Right-click the Data folder and choose Export, Data as set name and click save (This step will permit to make a copy)

    Right-click the Data folder, and choose delete

    4. Repeat the same steps this time with the Folder Options:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER / Software/Microsoft/Office/9/Word/Options

    I'm not sure I understand the need. It must be installed "automatically" when you install Office (yes, cheesy pun). For my part, if I open a Word file and I go to Format / Style / organize, I see a base model "" already present.
    And if I search on my computer, this file is located in C: \ Users \ yourname \ AppData \ Roaming \ Microsoft (\ Office). I think that AppData is a hidden folder, you must change the folder options to make it visible when browsing.

    I would suggest you to go by the following ways for resolving this issue.

    • Click Start -> Control Panel
    • Click on User Accounts, then click Manage another account. Confirm action
    • Click on Create a new account
    • In the box put a name different from yours and select Administrator, then click the button Create Account
    • Reboot the computer and log on with the new account and test Word. If it works then it is a problem with the old account. In this case just use the tool to transfer data (Windows Easy Transfer) to move your data from the old account to the new account.
