The message reads:

"Could Not Connect to MSWord.

Make sure word runs properly on your machine
Restart system."

Does word run properly on your system?
What is the application that you are running?

The message isn't particularly useful.

If the compatibility pack doesn't help, it may be necessary to post in the Powerbuilder zone.
