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

I think I've solved through late binding.

Dim oApp As Object
Dim wDoc As Object
 
Try
    oApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
    wDoc = oApp.Documents.Open(Path)
...

Open in new window
