  • 4. Word 2002 Won't open-Says not enough memory
    Windows XP, current service packs installed - on auto updates. We have a licensed version of Microsoft Works installed (2004?) with MS Word 2002 as a part of the package. All was working fine until sometime within the last week. Now when we attempt to open MS Word 2002 to a blank document or open an existing document it reports an error that we do not have enough storage or memory (presumably RAM). We have 256 MB Ram and the HD is showing 15 GB storage which is about 1/2 full on this drive. We also have a copy of Office 97 installed that has never been a problem. When we open Office 97 (Word) it opens and runs fine, and when we open any Word document with it, it also opens and runs fine. It appears that Works, and/or MS Word 2002 may be damaged. I can reinstall Works fromt he installer CD but I am also reading some threads suggesting that an update received in August from Microsoft may have done something to Word 2002 or similar versions. Anyone else having a similar problem? Will reinstalling Works clear this bug or is it Windows update related? Thanks. DMK

Can't maximize Word documents after installing Office 2003 SP2

Postby RHVkdQ » Sat, 01 Oct 2005 02:28:04 GMT

After installing Office 2003 SP2, when I open a Word document and maximize it 
(by clicking the upper-right-hand corner box), it does not fill the entire 
screen, and the status bar at the bottom is hidden. I cannot make the 
document fill the screen nor move it so that the status bar shows. This 
problem did not occur before installing SP2, and does not occur with other 
Office 2003 programs, like Excel, PowerPoint, etc. Has anyone noticed this 
problem, and if so, is there a fix?

1.Why can't I install Office 2003 SP2?

After installation of Microsoft Office Proffesional 2003 I did the Microsoft 
Update, and it downloaded two items.

1)  Junk Filter (KB905648)
2)  OTKLOADR (DB907417)

I've been running well for a few days and decided to check out the Microsoft 
Office site to check it out and did an upgrade search and it shows that there 
is an SP2 install, but I can't seem to download it, it's grayed out.

I DL'd the 'administrator' version and tried applying the SP that way, but 
it starts to install but a dialog pops up that says 'This update cannot be

2.Window not maximizing fully after Office 2003 SP1 install

Word 2003 (but not other Office 2003 applications) is not 
maximizing fully after I installed SP1.  When I click to 
maximize the window, it maximizes to the whole screen 
except the top 1 inch of the screen - you see the 
wallpaper or other applications behind Word in that 
space.  Any ideas?  Please email to  XXXX@XXXXX.COM 


3.Unable to view Word document created with Word 2003 SP2

Another employee created a document in Word 2003 SP2 - but when she sends it 
to me and I open it in Word 2003 SP3 - I cannot see the majority of the 
document.  If I select View Reading Layout - I can see that there is 
something there - but it is a mess and I cannot edit it.  The only difference 
we can find between our computers is the SP # of the Word version we are 
using.  Any insight on how we can fix this?  Thanks!

4.After installing Office 2003 SP2 Word doesn't work as E-Mail Edito

Before installing SP2 for Office 2003 - Word works fine as E-Mail Editor. 
After installing SP2 i got following Message:"Word isn`t installed, busy or 
not in the same Version as Outlook. There is a OLE - Registryfailure. The 
Programm isn't installed properly. Start Setup again!". I installed Office 
now several times but always the same Message(also without SP2, now!). Any 

5.cannot install office 2003 SP2, cannot uninstall office 2003

My installation of Office 2003 SP2 via Microsoft Update froze. Two hours 
later I hit the cancel button, and it acknowledged that, but the cancellation 
didn't seem to go anywhere. I was unable to "end task" but I could log off. 
Same result with attempting to update the product from Word. I tried to 
repair or uninstall via Add-or-Remove-Programs but the error message said 
that another install was in progress. 

Another detail: the notebook came with the office 2003 trial, but I bought 
the professional upgrade. The add-or-remove-programs listing shows both  a 
copy of standard and the professional. I cannot remove either.

Any advice appreciated.
