A friend sent me a problem about a missing "winword.exe" file. Several people in this forum sent advice and I thought the problem was solved in October. Not so. Here are the full details. can anyone suggest a solution, please?
I think his system is W98

" By accident I uninstalled Word. Unable to trace my own original disk, I installed my son-in-law's Office Pro '97 CD. I can READ Word files, but when I try to write a word doc now I get an error message saying winword.exe is missing. I can't find winword .exe listed on the CD. "
