I'm trying to run Microsoft Word on a Mac mini (OS 10.4.7) The application runs fine under the administrator login but not at all under the normal user login. I noticed that there were not any preferences for Word in the normal user login, so I copied the prefs from the admin login to the normal user's prefs folder. I also went to the documents folder in admin and copied the Microsoft folder to the documents folder in the normal user login. Even after restarting with these prefs, Word would not start in the normal user login. I keep getting the following error message: The application "Microsoft Word" cannot be launched. -10661
What should I try next?
