the operating system is not presently configured to run this application error

Microsoft Office Word

I have XP home edition and I keep getting the error "the operating system is
not presently configured to run this application" from any office app but I
need word. Anybody know a fix to this. Ive tried reinstalling office and
still does it.
With an Office app, click Help > Detect and Repair. Have your CDs
handy.

I'd also suggest you run a check disk on your system. Right click your
C drive from Windows Explorer, click Properties and choose Tools.
There you'll find the Error Checking tool. Run it.

Good luck...
