I HAVE JUST INSTALLED OFFICE 2003 ON A NEW COMPUTER, SOMETIMES IT WILL WORK BUT OFTEN NONE OF THE PROGRAMS WILL LOAD, A MESSAGE COMES UP STATING THE PROGRAM HAS ENCOUNTERED A PROBLEM AND MUST CLOSE. OFFICE IS INSTALLED ON A SECOND HARD DRIVE IN MY MACHINE, SOMETIMES WHEN I CLICK A SHORTCUT TO A PARTICULAR DOCUMENT IT STATES THE PATH CANNOT BE FOUND, ALTHOUGH IF I GO INTO MY COMPUTER THE DOCUMENT IS THERE, OTHER TIMES EVERYTHING WORKS PERFECTLY, ANY IDEAS?
I have done this in the past, I saved all my work to a file folder in My Documents and every so often copy the contents of the file folder to a backup location. But I still kept all my work on C: drive in My Documents, mine worked fine doing it that way. I hope this helps.
