I have a .NET application that uses Assembly Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.dll, v14.0.0.0.

When I deploy my application ,Will my application work on a machine with only Office 2003 installed on it?

Most likely not, v14.x.x.x is Office 2010, so on top of the system likely not having right dlls, it might also handle what you are doing differently.

You might be able to use it if you have the compatibility tools installed.

Is there is something 14 specifically you need? Or can you write it with 2003?

No, it will not work because the office assemblies are COM based. You need to build your application with the right dlls.
You can download the Office 2003 Primary Interop Assemblies (PIA) dlls from:

Note: Every client machine must have this dlls installed for your program to work.
