    Hi...............


    Check the CD/DVD from which you have installed may be corrupted
    or try to make sure that the files present in your CD may be
    deleted.

    So try to uninstall the present software and install it again or go to
    the 'Uninstall a Program' from there you repair the software so
    you can fix your problem.

    Or try to uninstall that software and install that software from the
    another CD or download the another installation file from internet.

    Thanks................

    Hello friend,



    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say...........

    1.Firstly check that the CD of that Microsoft Office is working fine or not.

    2.Now check that Microsoft Office is compatible with your present Mac Configuration.

    3.Or try to update your Mac OS then i hope it will work.

    4.While installing some error may occurred so it is better to re-install or repair your Microsoft Office.

    I hope it will help you to solve your problem.

    Have a nice day.....................

    hello dear............
    I had a different solution and it might help you....

    First check your MAC whether MS office is installed correctly.....
    If not so re-install it and restart MAC.

    If this is not the problem.

    Then the application preference might be different.
    So right click on the file you want to open in word....Then tap on properties....
    Now tap on change application preference........
    Then select MS word from the list and tap on OK.....

    It's done... hope it might help you.......

    That Means Installation Is Not Done Properly, So That Is Shown Only But Not Accessible. So Follow Some Steps :


    >> Uninstalled The Office Firstly Than Restart The System

    >> After That Again Installed That And Try For Access That Program

    >> If They Not Work Again Than Download The New Copy Of Office From The : http://www.microsoft.com/mac/products

    >> After That Installed And Access.

    I Hope That Info Is Usefully

    Dear Friend..

    I think you forget that you are using Mac OS which is not similar to other OS.
    The software CD of M.S. Office you are using with Mac is not and never compatible with Mac and this is the reason why that when you open any file in that, it become unresponsive.

    Well the whole-sole solution of the problem is to keep a compatible M.S Office Software in your Mac and then try to open the supported files.

    The name of the supported M.S Office Software for Mac is:-

    Microsoft Word 2011 for Mac 14.0.0
    http://microsoft-word-2011.en.softonic.com/mac/download

    Once you download and install this software in your Mac, then all the problems regarding opening a files of M.S. Office has been solve now.
    Now you can open any format of the M.S file and I hope this would definitely works for you.

    Thank you...
