    Re: Cannot open excel,word (2002)

    Can you clarify: If you start Word or Excel from the Start menu, instead of double-clicking a file, does it also close immediately? This usually indicates a product key (license) problem, or at least that's what it usually indicated in Office 2000. I'm not so sure with XP.

    If, however, you can open the application and create a blank document and it works fine, but then opening a document closes the application immediately, there might be something very unusual about those documents...or the application is crashing in a really strange way.

    Mechanical Desktop = "Autodesk Mechanical Workshop" ?
    For future reference, the support web site for Autodesk products is http://support.autodesk.com/, just in case you don't get an answer here.

    I'm guessing that the installation of Mechanical Desktop added some features or add-ins to Word and Excel to enable the programs to work together, but that there is a compatibility problem.

    Try this:

    Start | Run... type winword.exe /a and then Enter.

    This should, in theory, start Word without attempting to load any of the installed add-ins. If Word starts and stays open, then you need to find and remove something that was added to Word by the installation of Mechanical Desktop. Before closing Word, look under:

    Tools | Options... on the File Locations tab, the Startup folder name. You might have to click Modify to see the entire folder name, since it usually is very long. There also might be two other startup folders: one under "All Users" and one under c:Program Files for Office.

    I gave some very general instructions for what happens next in <!post=Post #165342,165342>Post #165342<!/post>, but if you know someone who can assist you in person on this, that might be best.

    Finally, El Dia de los Muertos is a celebration in Mexican culture held on November 1-2. People set up altars and make offerings to their dead relatives. You can read more about it on these pages:
