Default Microsoft Word doesnt work :(

I can't get my MS Word to function. It doesnt even start up. I have Win. XP Home Ed. And i really need it to get a resume and school work done soon.

"The action is only valid for products that are installed" is what i get when i attempt to open it, thats all.

Try looking for a different shortcut for it or running it from the Program Files\Microsoft Office directory. If you can't find it, do a search for WINWORD.exe and see if that brings it up.

Ain't Office grand? Oh wait. That's just the price tag.
