MS Word 2000 C++ Runtime Library Runtime Error

by mrsndiaye / July 22, 2005 6:26 AM PDT

Recently I received the following error message when opening MS Word 2000 in Windows XP: "Runtime Error! Program C:\Program\Microsoft Office\Office\Winword.EXE; This application has requested Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way." When I click the dialog box to close this message, the program terminates. I have not been able to use the program at all or fix this by uninstalling and reinstalling the program and am wondering what to do to solve this so that I can continue using MS Word 2000. Any thoughtful responses are greatly appreciated.

1. Find, delete all NORMAL.DOT files. If you didn't find them, then you need to learn more about finding files.

2. Uninstall and reinstall Word.

Can't fix it? Install Open Office from until you sort it out.
