I have installed Microsoft Office 2007 in my computer. There is problem opening MS word.  It pops up a window box with a message like “preparing to install” whenever I try to open it. But after some time it pops up another message said “cannot find the path”. Is there any solution?

Hello aldrin

There are many ways to solve this method , I can say that confidently cause i experienced this same issue before when i was on my OLD pc. I searched and re-searched a lot found many solutions (tones of them) 

But none of them worked perfectly , either i receive some error or even my whole PC crashed,when i edited my registry .
So its better to do just one small and easy thing just re-install your MS-office once. I hope you have the CD for MS office installation, or purchase it from the Microsoft website if you don't have it.

The problem might be some file missing issues so its trying to install again or repair it. Just re-install it 🙂

Hope that solves your issue
