Hi,

 

In that case it's probably necessary to Uninstall Office 2003 and then reinstall again.

 

Because Office 2003 is old and released before Windows 7 make sure you right click the installation setup file and select Run As Administrator.

Ermm... I would think the original problem could have been solved by right clicking a document, selecting Open With, clicking Choose Default, and setting the default program as Word 2003.


Now, since the program has been uninstalled, my only advice would be to just download OpenOffice for free for your word documents.


Good luck!

Not sure because the repair install should have fixed that...

Yes, OpenOffice saves as a format that is compatible with Microsoft Word.  It should not give you any trouble with that.

i installed a bogus copy of office 2003 a couple of years ago

 

 

i did find another 2007 version that is also bogus, (didnt know i had it) from the paperwork with it, it state that it is supposed to be able to allow you to bypass the key code,

 

Don't believe support for this is in line with G2G TOU?
