Word 8.0 -Unable to run due to lack of m

By MoodySkipper ·
I have had this appear on numerous PC's running both 95 and 98. This is part of Office 97 and keeps showing word 8.0. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the said program. I have also tried changing the virtual memory settings to no avail. This is on a machine that has at least 4Gb Hdd free and has 128Mb RAM installed. The only way out of all this was to format the C: drive and re-install windows and all the software. Please can someone show me an easier way out of this.
Thanks
Howell Rees

I've had this problem before. This may not solve the problem, but have a go.....

Microsoft have documented that this problem occurs if the PC has lost its connection to what Windows thinks is it's default printer. Have a look at this url.

After doing a bit of research . I found this is a known issue in SR1 (for 97). You will need to download the SR2 patch for it.

alot of packages come with a copy of ws word with operating systems. before loading ms office 97 remove the word program from the add and remove programs in control panel. "this will also solve alot of miss reasd regestries in windows" install offce 97 sr1 reboot then machine and install the sr-2 patch. also run disk cleanup it is available in the win98 system utilities. use this to delete temp internet and temp files on your system.

Try running scandisk and defrag on the said machine if you get the same kind of error message then your cluster size is to small for the size hard drive you have use a 3rd party disk manager and change the cluster size to 8k instead of 4k
