how do i get word to work with windows 8?

downloaded Office professional plus onto laptop with Windows 8 but Word isn't working. Can use Powerpoint and Excell. Onscreen message says there is a problem and Word is not responding. I used the disc to download and message said it was successfully loaded. Should I uninstall and try again?

Did your Windows 8 machine come with Office 2013 or 2010 Starter (an ad-supported free version of Office)? Did you remove that before installing Office from your CD?

Transferred to Windows 8 Help from Windows 7 Help.

OK - which version of Office is it?
