How can I achieve backward compatibility with Word 12.0 Object library?

I am writing a program in Visual Studio 2005 (VB.NET), which will need to open a Word Document and modify it. I link Word 12.0 Object library. Backward compatibility goes right until Word XP (2002) where i get the next error :
"Attempted to read or write protected memory".
Would you know how I could achieve backward compatibility with Word XP? thanks in advance
