Winword Exception

By brian ·
I have a strange problem. Recently I had to recover some files from a failing hard drive using OnTrack's Recover software. Most of the files were Word documents. I copied them to a second local hard drive then out to my server.

Upon checking the documents, they open fine. It appears that the recover was successful. However, if I burn them to a CD then try to open them from the CD, I get an error: "Winword Caused an exception 01H in module KERNEL32.DLL".

To make things even stranger, if I attempt to copy a Word file from the CD to my desktop, I get them same error except its Explorer rather than Winword causing the error.

First I burned the CD from a network drive. Then I tried copying the files to my local HD and burning the CD from the local copy. It didn't help.

My OS is Win98SE and I'm running Word 2000 SR1. I have 192MB RAM. Any ideas out there?

I ran across something similar after backing up my documents.
What I did to fix the problem is after I copied the file to my desktop or C: drive I right clicked on the file and went to properties.
I checked the attributes, and switched them from (if I can remember correctly) read-only to archive.
Try this and see if it helps.
