When I go to the SEARCH at the letf hand side of my computer and type in the name of a Microsoft Word document, the file is found. the problem is that when I go to open the file, I get a diolog box taht says THERE WAS A PROBLEM SENDING THE COMMAND TO THE PROGRAM, and it wont open from there. I have reinstalled word aand that made no difference.
This error can be caused by the shortcut for word instructing the program to run as an Administrator when the circumstances will not permit it.
To check this, go to the word shortcut, right click on it, and select properties. On the compatibility tab, check to see if "run this program as an administrator" is checked. If it is, remove the check mark. If you cannot do it there (greyed out), then click on change settings for all users and remove it there.
No, that did not work. I get a diolog box that says:
There was a problem sending the command to the program.
Click start>then type winword.exe /r
and press enter
That should re-register the extensions.
I will opt out and open the question to other experts.
My question was not answered and I still have the problem. Did I get charged for this? Will my question ever get an answer? I would like you to get paid, but do I get charged if I rate you? Will that be the end of my question and problem getting fixed?
Im not happy with the result and should not have to pay for this.
