    Word 97 working with XP (Microsoft Word 97 SR1)

    Since installing Microsoft XP my Word 97 will not let me save, print, copy or cut and paste. Error message reads: Microsoft Word for Windows 97 application file has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. What is wrong and how to fix it?

    Do you mean Windows XP with Word 97?

    You might need to reinstall the Word application (or Office 97, or Home Essentials, whichever way you got it). There are many shared components between Windows and Office, and it's possible that your upgrade to Windows XP replaced a file that Word 97 can't work without.
