    Same here I installed the Microsoft office 2011 and when I tried launching word I get the wired error

    Code:
    Microsoft Word cannot be opened because of a problem.
    Check with the developer to make sure Microsoft  Word works with this version of Mac OS X. 
    You may need to reinstall the application. 
    Be sure to install any available updates for the application and Mac OS X.

    This fault happens if the Office 2011 program was moved or copied you probably have done it so you are having this trouble.

    May be I can help you just see which one of the following cure your problem

    1) Check the program path it should be something like
    Code:
    Macintosh HD\Applications\Microsoft Office 2008
    
    Macintosh HD\Applications\Microsoft Office 2011
    If the path in the error message be different, you have to move the application folder to its correct location.

    2) Delete duplicate entries by the Finder menu

    3) Remove and then reinstall Office

    See using any of this is solving your problem if it is then please post the reply as other can know about this
