Rundll Error, Can't Open Word Documents, Can't Open Some Of My Pictures, Low Memory

Q: Rundll Error, Can't Open Word Documents, Can't Open Some Of My Pictures, Low Memory

I'm having 4 problems.

Rundll window at start up:
Error Loading C:\WINDOWS\System32\spool\Drivers\W32X86\3\DLCQtime.dll

This specifiec module could not be found.
When I double click on Word documents, a Window Installer box opens and says 'preparing to install' with a cancel button. Then, a Microsoft Office Edition 2003 box opens:
Installation Error:File not Found

A required installation file SKU112.CAB cound not be found
It then asks if installed from a cd to insert it or if downloaded from the internet to browse your system and find it. I don't have any Office 2003 cd's. The cd's I have that I think are for my Word documents are Microsoft Works Suite 2000.
My last year vacation pictures will not open. When double-clicking on them, an Adobe Photoshop Album window opens with the words 'failed to load photo'.
My memory about a year ago was about half free. It is now showing I have 2 GB.
I tried going back and restoring my computer in hopes of being able to access my pictures. I've ran spybot. That's all I knew to do. I have Windows XP Home Edition 2002. ~tmcc

Hi,

Got a problem with Word and Excel 2007.

Both programs open ok (under 2 seconds), so no problems there.

The problem is opening the program by means of opening a document. It takes about 1 minute

Exactly the same thing with both Word and Excel.

Has anyone got a solution? Surely there must be a quick little registry tweak to sort this out?

Hi All,

I work on a web application that has Excel and Word documents in it.

At the moment when a user opens these documents in IE9 they get presented with a dialog box asking:

What do you want to do with "filename"?

The user is presented with Open, Save and Save As as the options.

Unlike previous versions of IE there is no check box to tick to remember the user's choice so it comes up every time.

I really need to get rid to this box. Does anyone know how to disable it?

Thanks

Tom

Hello everyone, thanks for viewing.

So I logged onto my laptop to work on my university assignment some more, and poof, it won't open.
I keep getting the same error every time.

I can open the file in WordPad but I just get fifteen pages of ">:?:%<":?&:"
I can open it in OpenOffice but the formatting all changes, headers/footers disappear, images disappear, text boxes containing quotes aren't there.

I copied the Open Office version into a new blank Word page; and filled in the blanks (which took me an hour) but when I saved and opened the file; I got the same error.

Hoping it was me doing something wrong with the way I saved it or the default program to open it, I repeated the process taking up another hour; but I'd done it right, and got the same error code.

The default program to open it is Office 2003, the same format I made/saved the replacement file in.
It makes no sense to me. Also, why now? What changed? It was working fine yesterday.
Not done any downloads or scans so I don't know what the changed factor is.

Please can anyone help me, these assignments are dawning upon me and I need to get my finishing touches done before I can submit them, I also don't want to risk submitting a faulty file.

Thank you so much!

So about a few months ago, I was cleaning up my computer and I was deleting programs from the control panel that I don't use anymore.

Do you have Microsoft word installed? Go to your Start Menu and look through your programs for a folder named Microsoft, Inside should be a program called Microsoft Word. If not, than you need to buy Microsoft Word, or download Open-office, just google it. It is a free alternative to Word, and it can open word. If you do have word than when that prompt comes back up than select "select program from list" and choose Microsoft Word. Good Luck , without computer for 6 days will check back then .

Greetings all.
How do I open two Word documents in Windows7?

In XP I could just click on two documents and both would open. That doesn't work in Windows 7. When I click on the second document the first one disappears.

I often need two documents open so that I can copy and paste between them, see any changes I'm making and compare the two. Having the two open at the same time is much more convenient than having to keep opening and closing them as I have to do in Windows7.

I tried some suggestions that I found on the internet, such as selecting the two documents and clicking, or using OPEN but in each case only one document opens.

I can open two of other types of files, such as PowerPoint shows, so it appears to be related to Word somehow.

I'm using Word 2003.

A:How do I open two Word documents in Windows7?

Word 2003 can't open the newer Word .docx format or Powerpoint presentations. It's been so long since I used it that I can barely remember its functions - but it may need to be installed in XP compatibility mode if you would like it to work properly in Windows 7...

1) How can I remove the /n switch? Remember, I'm not clicking on a shortcut, but on a document icon. I know how to assign the "Open With" command, but I don't see any options about changing command-line switches.

Okay, so you know my system details: I have a Dell Studio XPS 16 laptop with Vista Home Premium 64-bit on it and McAfee Security Center. Now the problem,

When I first got my laptop and installed Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 on it, Word worked more or less fine. One thing that was kinda weird from the beginning was the fact that sometimes and error message dialog box would pop up when I would double-click a word document to open that said something to the effect of "can not find file" on it. I found that if I already had Microsoft Word open, that the word document would immediately open on the first double-click.

Now Microsoft Word won't allow me to open any word documents. I have tried double clicking them, Ctrl+O, and even selecting Open after pressing the Office button- but nothing will work. Every time I try to open a word document, Microsoft Word freezes. Strangely enough, I just discovered that I can open documents that are in the recently open documents that pop up whenever you place the cursor over the Open selection in the Office button- but other than that nada.

I have run diagnostics (no errors were found), done a repair to no avail. When I reinstalled Office, it basically returned to the original problem of just not opening documents by double-clicking. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do? Is this a problem with Office 2007 not being completely compatible with x64? Is there some upgrade to fix this?

Hey Ray,

I had a similar problem which was probably different than yours, but here it is for your info. I couldn't access EXCEL or WORD. I would get a lock up and eventually a "can't open excel' message. The short of it was my NORTON had gotten corrupted and because it was set to scan those documents upon opening, it cause them to halt.

Maybe that tidbit will lead you somewhere. Good luck.

Tried every which way. OE takes 3-4 minutes. IE and Quicken open ok. To reach my dial-up connection is normal. Have had system over 4 years. Nothing like this ever before. Took machine to local repair shop. they said it works fine there. Then I discovered by chance if I disable Norton Security (2004, personal firewall and antivirus, while I work off-line (dialup connection closed) everything works fine. But if I leave the Norton programs on, while working off line, it is all as above. One other thing. When Norton is on, and I open Word or a document, in lower left corner of screen, while this wait time is going on, is message about checking with antivirus. I have checked with Norton via email support, but no response as yet. Have not tried to check with Microsoft.
How may I leave Norton on, and/or avoid all this nuisance, and go about my work?

I later went online trying to find a solution and found out that I should delete the normal.dot templates. So I deleted the files normal.dot, normal11.dot, and a normal that looked like it came from the office 2007 trial (Microsoft Office Word Macro-Enabled Template). Well, this allowed me to open Word and save files. However, I can't open any saved files. Is there any solution to this? Thanks, I'm not particularly good with computers.

Problem 1: When I try to open Word documents, Word will open but then tell me "The file <blah> is not available." I can still open the documents using other applications, such as Microsoft Works, so I know it's not a problem with the file.

Problem 2: When I click the lovely X to close Microsoft Word, I get a popup that says "The file Normal already exists. Do you want to replace the existing file?" It doesn't matter if I click Yes, No, or Cancel, it then opens the "Save As" window, with the folder being "Templates." So I hit cancel and then I get another popup that says "Changes have been made that affect the global template, Normal. Do you want to save those changes?" I hit No (I've also tried Yes) and it finally closes. And then I cry myself to sleep.

Any suggestions at all? I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Microsoft Office, but that doesn't fix it. Thanks for reading all this.

I have Word 2002 which is part of MS Works (came pre-installed), and I have MS office Pro 2000. They all work great except that it seems like Word is getting slower and slower to open and close documents. Most of theses documents are in the 20 to 60 KB in size and have one small graphic, the company logo.

A document takes about 6-7 seconds to open and about 6 seconds to close. It seems like they are getting slower.

My computer is clean, no viruses, no spyware or malware. I use disk cleanup and defrag regularly. I have 256 MB ram, P4 1.7 Gh, 40 Gb hard drive with 69 % unused. I wondered if more ram would help. OS is XP Home. I have AVG antivirus, Zone Alarm Pro, Spywareguard, Palm Hot Sync, CookieWall running all the time. Everything else is fast on my computer except Word.

Any ideas and advice welcome. Thank you.
 

A:Word documents open and close very slow

Try Office Experts Word troubleshooting, only do the steps until it works right, but you may need to do at least 3 and 5.

Also, if you have a recent Norton, there's a setting in there (under Misc?) that scans Office documents when you open them. Turn it off.

I use OpenOffice Writer and when I send information from it to my brothers, who use MS OFFICE Word, they cannot open anything that I send them. Is there a free plug-in that will open OpenOffice on their computers. OpenOffice is much too large for them to have both OpenOffice and MS Office on their computers and they say Word is easier for them to use and is much better than OpenOffice Writer and of course much more expensive. I did a search here but found nothing on this, of course I may not have used the right key words etc. If the explaination is on this forum will someone kindly point me in the right direction?

With any document you wish to send them, click File, Save As, then at the bottom of the window beside the cancel button click the drop down arrow and select to save the document as 97/2000/XP format.

I can't open word documents by double clicking the document file. When i do this, i get an error message 'not enough memory or disk space to run outlook' (although i am not trying to open outlook!)

The only way i can open documents is to open word 2007 and then open documents through there.
the file associations are all set to word.

This problem started because i could not choose word as my default programme for docx files. i changed the programme file name from WINWORD.EXE. to WORD.EXE. and i managed to set the default programme as word, but now i have this problem.

A:can't double click to open word documents

Have you gone into the Control Panel's Default Programs menu and made sure that Word has all of the required defaults?

Control Panel (All Items) > Default Programs > Set your default programs

If that doesn't help, you can set the default for a particular program through the file associations menu.

Control Panel (All Items) > Default Programs > Set Associations

That should atleast allow you to cause .doc, .docx and all other Word related file types to open in Word 2007.

Whenever I create a Word document, save it, and reboot my computer, the formatting gets messed up. My document is filled with giberish characters.
I have another problem and am not sure if the two are related. When my windows 98 pc boots a window appears on the taskbar that reads "Driver memory error". It disapears soon after.
Could the two problems be related?
Know how to fix either of them?
