    Microsoft Works suite 2005?
    I have Microsoft Works suite 2005 and it came with Microsoft word 2002 but when I try to install just word it won't work this is what comes up when I install it and try to use it



    The works task launcher cannot access the task you selected. Files needed to start program may be missing, corrupted, or may have been deleted. To restore or replace the files, reinstall the program, and then try starting the program again.


    Is there something missing?? Do I need something else than word??

    Please I need help!!

    Works is an integrated suite. I don't believe you can install parts of it like you can with Office.

    It means that Works is really one program, unlike Office.

    Open Office is a competing product to Microsoft Office. Its compatible with MS Office's file formats but its not Office or Word.
