I have windows xp on this laptop and microsoft word 2007. I don't think I have ever been able to open word, but I am not for sure as I have had just recently the need to use it. Every time I try to open something up, I get an error saying there is not enough memory or disk space to open. From what I looked up and tried to do on my own, I think it has something to do with the compatibility pack for the 2007 office. I deleted it, but it still won't open any word documents. I even received the message "this patch package could not be opened. Verify that the patch package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid windows installer patch package.
I don't know what to do to fix this, I need this program so bad, I am taking online college courses and must use this program. Please if anyone can help me I would be so gracious. This site has helped me previous times, I love what you all do for people like us. Thanks so much!!

Not very Promising, I'm afraid

An alternative would be Open Office, whis is free and compatible with MS Office applications
