When I tried to install Word 6.0 I get an error message


I bought a new computer that came with MS Works. I don't like the word processor included, and tried to install my copy of Word 6.0. When I attempt to install it, I get the error message: a:\setup is not a valid Win32 Application. Can you help me install Word on this machine?

Hello and thank you for your question.

A:Word 6.o is an older version I suggest that you load the upgrade version of Word Get at least Word 97 or better yet Word 2000 These are much better application Go to

http://www.microsoft.com/ and check out Microsoft's Office products.

Good luck,
