Did you check if Word is installed on the particular computer? And you can always use Process.Start to start a program/open a document. Here is some more information about how to open a word document in C#: http://omegacoder.com/?p=555

yes i have installed word 2010
the link you gave me
visual studio errors under application,document and selection saying that you can use it as an instatnce

thanks it worked i used a different code!

So what was the code? Are you not going to help others?

Try using this:

System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("Your file path (including file name with file extention");
