  • 1. Word shut downs on open
    Hi. Sometimes, and I don't know why, when I open some word files Microsoft Word sudently shut downs. I thought that the problem was on files, but if I open those files in another PC there's no problem. Any reason for that happens? Regards, Marco
  • 2. Pasting Error
    When I open word up and copy and paste some graphics into word I always get a very small graphic (cm square). That is nothing to do with the graphic I have just copied. If I now copy some text and paste it, it pastes correctly. I can now copy my original graphic and it pastes properly. Is there a solution to this?

It will not be possible to create links from other documents to this document." I cannot drag and drop text. Word 2003 SP2 windows xp media center edition version 2002 sp2
  • 4. Word 2003 crashes when opening Wordperfect Docs
    We merged away from Wordperfect to Word (2003) and were promised that Word would open any WP document. However, certain (random) WP documents cause Word to Crash every single time. I have all of the updates but need to get into some of these documents
  • 5. Unable to open document
    Error reads "not enough memory or disk space to complete operation". I've tried closing out applications, cleaning up the C drive, and deleting random documents to make room. Thoughts/suggestions?

We get this "Clip art cannot complete the operation"message and error code 
0x80040154 class not registered and that is all we can get out of our Insert 
Picture. Patiently we have tried EVERYTHING MS has to offer to NO avail!! Our 
Office 2000 Pro worked flawlessly and we upgraded to this, YAK!!!

Hi everybody,

An OWC Spreadsheet is placed on a windows form in my C# project. This
application was written on a XP 32bit machine and is working smoothly
meanwhile. Thanks to a great support in this board!

Now I had the chance to install XP 64 on one of my machines and was
curious whether my app would work on that as well. After installing
the OWC from the MS Homepage, the build of the application went fine.
When I started it in the IDE it highlighted the line:


the message is.

  Message="Class not registered (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80040154
System.Windows.Forms.UnsafeNativeMethods.CoCreateInstance(Guid& clsid,
Object punkOuter, Int32 context, Guid& iid)
       at System.Windows.Forms.AxHost.CreateWithoutLicense(Guid clsid)

I browsed the internet without any luck. There was a little bit about
SQL Server, but that was about it. If you have any idea it would be
great if you can share it with me.
