Problem running WORD (6.0) under WIN-OS2 (warp 3)

Hi!

I have been using WORD (version 6.0) running under
WIN-OS2 for a while. It is been doing fine except that,
once in awhile, WORD would not let me save some files
because of a "disk problem". When this happened, I would
simply save the file under a different name.
I was happy with that until the computer was shut down
when this happened, but BEFORE the file was saved under
a different name. Ever since that time, it is impossible to
open WORD alltogether, consistently getting the following
message:

Application error
WINWORD caused a General
Protection Fault in
module WINWORD.EXE at 00DE:42C5

I removed and reinstalled WORD (from within MS Office v4.2)
several times, but I always get the same error message.
I suspect this is from OS2, but I have no clue how to
override it.

Thank you for your help!

Denis

This problem also happened to me several times. I got the error message "No more disk space". I still had 30 MB of disk space. Later I found out that there were many temporary files in the directory and that the option to create backup files was turned on. I turned it out and I've never since experienced that problem again.
So try it at your PC, too.
