I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

More information please ... what happens .. do you get an alert, error, message of any type?  Does the app get a small black arrow on the dock?
Can you open the Activity Monitor application and see if word is listed as an active process?
Can you open the Console application and see if there are any error messages?
Does it do anything or generate any kind of error?  I"m running Yosemite and I have 2011 installed and it works just fine.
