Microsoft Word

ASHPHelpDesk used Ask the Experts™
Two of our users are having this issue.  When they  open a Word attachment from their email (Lotus Notes), they recieve the following error message "Unable to locate program".  When they open Word documents outside of email, Word launches a blank gray screen, they are to open the file twice for the document to appear on the screen.  
So far I have done the following:
  Recreated the Notes.ini file
  Replaced their file
  Reinstall XP
  Repaired XP
  Created an entry in the registry to fix damaged SmartTags
  Under Windows Explorer, File Type, made sure that the DOC extension is associated with Microsoft Word

Well It would appear to be a WORD install issue.

Reinstall Word/ and or Office and also get the latest Service pack for Office.

I hope this helps !
