    Hey guys,
    I have a problem with my Macbook Pro. I have installed MS Office, and it opens existing documents fine. Problem is, when I open any of the applications, a new Word document for example, the program crashes before the new document even appears. I get the classic 'Word quit unexpectedly. Click Reopen to open the application again... Etc etc' message.

    Strangely, though, if I open an existing .doc file, it opens and runs perfectly normally. Same for Powerpoint and Excel docs. I haven't tried the other programs but I'd assume it's the same deal.

    I have tried reinstalling several times, but it does this every time. I am installing from the CD.

    What am I doing wrong?

    What version of Office? Have you installed all the patches?
