    Microsoft Word - keeps crashing
    I really hope someone can help - its stressing me out!
    My Microsoft word keeps crashing, within seconds or if not minutes of opening any document. It did it first last week, and then seemed ok, but is now doing it again.

    I have Microsoft Word v. X and I run on opertating system OS X, Version 10.4.11. It's a 2.2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo - a Powerbook.

    I'm not a computer whizz, so let me know if you need any more info - but i would really appreciate any tips, as I'm on the other side of the world from home and can't work without it... which is a massive problem!

    Thank you so much.

    Specs:
    Imac 27" Retina 5K, 512GB flash memory, 3.3GHz, 16GB memory, macOS Sierra beta.
    On an Intel based Mac to use Word v.X, which is very old software, about 2002 from memory, it is necessary to have instralled Rosetta.

    Also have you upgraded v.X to the latest MS release?

    thanks so much, i'll install rosetta and see if that helps. No, I haven't upgraded the MS office. Is there a free upgrade online?

    Specs:
    Mac Mini (Late 2014) 2.6GHz Intel Core i5 Memory: 8GB 1600MHz DDR3
    Maybe not. Here is the MS Word Homepage:
    http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word/default.aspx

    Everything I see is more recent. Perhaps you can find contact information and send an e-mail inquiry.

    Here is a link through VersionTracker to Office v.X updates which hopefully still works as MS has removed v.X updates from the Mactopia web site. The link does seem to work. It may be necessary to start prior to version 10.1.9 by clicking on the arrow:-

    Microsoft Office v.X 10.1.9 software download - Mac OS X - VersionTracker
