Error on readme.doc

Using MS XP Home

One of my hobbies is Microsoft Train Simulation. On the add one's like a
new engine or car, there is always a readme.txt file with instructions.
Some have additional information on a file called readme.doc. When I try to
open the .doc file I get a error message.

Microsoft Visual C ++ Runtime Error

Runtime error program c:\Microsoft Office\Office 10\Winword.exe

This application has requested the runtime to terminate in a unusual way.
Please contact the application support team for more information.

I have did the repair on MS word. Can some one tell me how to fix this
problem or how to read .doc files? Thanks in advance,

Old Geaser

have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling office?
as a workaround, you could open the file in wordpad
right click the file in explorer, go to 'open with' and select wordpad

Hi Seth,

I will try the uninstall and reinstall. The repair only took about 5
seconds. I did a search and found a MS program called WDVIEWER.EXE
which opens the file ok. Thanks for the reply.
