Did you try this solution, ahkid2002? It's not *exactly* the same error message as you're getting, but it's similar, worth a try I here

ahkid2002, I hope you take no offence on this question, as non is intended. Are you confident that Office 2000 is a legitimate copy? This is a similar type of message that you may receive if it isn't. J.

yes it is a legit copy of Microsoft Office 2000

No Problem

Did your machine come with Works pre-loaded? if so then you may be getting a conflict with the Word program that is on Works.
