What Version of Word are you trying to install?

From what are you trying to install it?

Is it possibly an OEM Version that was installed on another PC?

Google has lots of possible solutions but, basically, it's probably a tad ancient to work well with Windows 10.

LibreOffice's Word Processor is free, and comes highly recommended

Done a little more research.

Apparently, in Windows 10, there is a thing called "Compatibility Mode". It has been suggested that this might help[ solve your problem.

I know nothing of it
