    Word opens empty (Word 2002 10.2627.2625)

    Hi all,

    I'm a document-centric kind of guy, and everything on my computer plays along except Word. When I use the Office "Open Document" shortcut Word often opens without the doc loaded. This used to be a rare occasion but seems to be happening more and more.

    Any ideas.

    Some people have reported error message, such as the path/file name is not valid or couldn't be found. Do you get anything like that before Word opens (or after Word opens)?

    Do you get the same problem opening documents from an Explorer window?

    Where do you find this shortcut?

    What OS are you using?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    WinXP pro is the OS.

    There are no errors or warnings when this happens. Word just opens without a doc loaded. I should note that I have Acrobat 5 full version and something called ActiveDocs on my system.

    This can occur when opening either from explorer or the Open Office Document dialog box.

    I to have Acrobat 5 full version installed, No ActiveDocs installed.

    When I click on "Open Office Document" in my Start Menu, it opens a pane in "My Documents" and waits for me to select a file, and then opens that file.

    Tried it on 4 machines and NO problem. Windows XP Pro SP1, Office XP Pro.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
