unable to open msword document

  end 19:02 23 Aug 2004

document e mailed to me as application/msword ; will open on main but not lap-top computer;
both on Win98se;
received into lap-top , tries to open in wordpad, fails and tells me i have performed "an illegal operation ";

puzzled; why can I not open it on lap-top but can on main computer.am on lap-top at present.

and, have just discovered that I cannot even "open a new document"; where do I look to see if I have a way of creating a new document on here...am extremely puzzled...

my start menue does got include "new document"...??wot has "appened:)or wot is "missing " here ?(apart from my sanity)

this is on lap-top.

Erm, perhaps a silly question but: are you sure that you have Word installed on the laptop? Is it listed in Start, Programs?

nope; cant find it in "windows set up" , or in control pannel, or anywhere...:(

where can I find it on here...extremely puzzled:(

It isn't part of Windows. It is part of Microsoft Office. Do you have the disk for that? It is legal to install one copy of Office on both a desktop and a laptop.
