I also have been having the same problem on an in-law's computer. I
bought the Dell for them, and now it's of course my responsibility to
make sure it's running. I put a copy of Office 2007 on a brand new
computer running Vista Home Premium, and it hasn't worked since day
1. I am at a loss, as I have read and read and can't find a solution.
The only way that word documents will open at all for me is to open
Word previously. As long as it is currently open, it's not a problem
to open documents. Otherwise, I get the message "windows cannot find
file specified" blah blah blah.
I have also noticed that MS Word 2007 is the only Office program
that's set up to run as an Admin. Is there a reason for this?
