From your question it seems you haven't installed MS Office (MS Word is part of this package). Installation of Windows XP doesn't contain Office suite.

Well my current computer is still using wordpad, i would like to upgrade it to ms word


First off, it is important to understand that Wordpad is not associated with MS word, they are to completely different programs, with that said, in order to install MSword, you must either purchase MS word from the Microsoft website, or from and authorized retailer, (Best Buy, Futureshop, etc.).

You can also download MS Word from a torrent site, but may find it difficult to find a product key for the software to be installed properly (I will not provide assistance in how to download pirated software, as that is considered illegal in some countries)

Another alternative to MS Wrd is OPEN Office, which is a freeware Office Suite that can be downloaded from the developers website (http://www.openoffice.org/)

My msword 2003 showing file convertor error in all files my data is v importent pls help me


ARE YOU TRYING TO OPEN WORD 2007 DOCUMENT IN WORD 2003. FOR YOUR INFORMATION, WORD 2003 CANT OPEN DOCUMENTS CREATED IN WORD 2007 FORMAT UNTIL THEY HAVE BEES SAVED IN WORD 2003 FORMAT( YOU GET THIS OPTION IN SAVE AS DIALOG BOX).

You may receive the following error:

Word cannot start the converter mswrd632.wpc
This error is cause because of f the security update for Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Windows Server 2003 on December 8, 2009.
You may experience mail merge issues write files are parsed but no message is shown.
To resolve this issue, an affected user can unregister the mswrd632 converter by editing the registry as follows:
Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.

Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Text Converters\Import\MSWord6.wpc
On the Edit menu, click Delete.
Click Yes.
Exit Registry Editor.

NOTE: For x64 systems above path is slightly changed:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\ CurrentVersion\Applets\Wordpad
This change will effectively unregister the converter and disable it for third-party applications and for Microsoft Office. Microsoft Office will use its own text converters to open these kinds of files.
You can also fix this issue with applying the registry fix, but that is a less secure way according to Microsoft, as this fix actually creates 'AllowConversion' key in the new 'Wordpad' subfolder. (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\Wordpad)
Download REG fix
There is another way to solve this issue by copying the MSWrd632.wpc file from another computer that doesn't have this issue. Make sure that this file comes from a trusted source on your network. This file can be found on the following path:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\TextConv






OR DO THIS

Go to Tools > Options > General (Tab) in Word 2003
And check "Confirm Conversion at Open"
When you next try to open the document it will prompt you with a list to convert from. Choose Word 2007 and your document will open.
Have in mind that you will have to unregister mswrd632 first, which is noted above, before you make this changes.
NOTE: If none of this works, please check that your file is not corrupted, or that you or someone else didn't add X at the end of .doc extension or vise versa. This WILL NOT work! You have to convert the document using Office 2007 or 2010.

What is the main function of microsoft word?


The most basic function of MS Word is to create a document/file. Once a document has been created, the user may enter data - for example by typing some text. At any point after the document has been created, the user is allowed to save the contents. The document can then be accessed at a later time and modified as necessary. Documents can be printed out at any stage in this process.

My minibook only has wordpad can I replace it with MSword?


Ok, well you do not need to replace it as such, one usually simply installs Microsoft Office, and this will install Word, & others too, Or, just MS Word, and Associate, the Program with the Document files, so that documents will automatically open suitable documents.

Have multiple users but only some have microsoft


All the users on your system will have the access to WordPad. Wordpad comes with operating system & all can access

To open MS WordPad, click "Start," "All Programs" and then "Accessories." Next, click on the "WordPad" icon.

To put it on desktop, you can right click the "WordPad" icon and click on "Send To" -> "Desktop"

If other uses doesnt find WordPad on the above location. You can still open it going to "Start"-> "Run" on the space type "wordpad" and click ok and it will open up wordpad.

Hope this helps

How to write document and cut and paste it


To write any document, you must have a word processor like MS Word from MS Office. However, if you do not have MS Office installed on your PC, then you can use WordPad. Start->All Programs->Accessories->WordPad. It is the most basic word processor.. Absolutely no frills. Should you want to have one with all the frills and have the power of MSWord and free at that, you must use Open Office which can be downloaded free from www.openoffice.org. It is as powerful as MSOffice and can handle all MSOffice files.

You won't lose the data files, but you bring up a good point. I would use Word Pad and try opening a couple of the files. If they open correctly, you'll be safe to uninstall MS Office.

If it doesn't open, try to convert them to a simple text file or a .rtf file in MS Office by opening them and choosing Save As and save them that way.
