microsoft word 2000 not working in windows XP

  ARTY DAN 17:17 03 Aug 2003

I have Microsoft office 2000 with Word I have just installed the Word application on my desktop, nothing else, when I click on the word logo a grey box appears, it has a red disk with
a white x in the middle on the top left hand corner, the message in the box says: this application has failed to start because MSO9.DLL was not found. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem I have tried reinstalling it the same message keeps on appearing I don't know if it is because I am trying to run word 2000 on windows XP. Please can anyone help I would appreciate it thank you.

Microsoft says....


Name: mso9.dll Description: Microsoft Office 2000 component Version: DLLSelfRegister: No TypeLib Guid: {2DF8D04C-5BFA-101B-BDE5-00AA0044DE52} TypeLib Version: 2.1

Click the Start button, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.

In Control Panel, double-click Add/Remove Programs.

In the list of programs, click either Microsoft Outlook 2000 or Microsoft Office 2000, depending on how you installed Outlook.

Click Add/Remove.

After Office Setup begins, click Repair Office.

Click Repair errors in my Office 2000 installation, and then click Finish.

The repair process may take several minutes while Office Setup repairs any damaged or missing files. If you receive a prompt to restart your computer, click Yes

Just to confirm the Word2000 runs quite happily on WinXP.
