Hi! Yes, I also am using Word97, but not Office97, and have had the
same problem. A number of fixes to this were posted on the following
newsgroups: microsoft.public.word.applicationerrors and

The one I successfully used was posted by Bob Neuman.

"I found a way around this problem.
1. Start the wrd6ex32.exe program.

2. When the error message appears, DO NOT PRESS OK. Open up windows
explorer. Move the file wrd6ex32.cnv from the
C:\Windows\Temp\1xp000.tmp folder to the
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Textconv folder.

3. Now go back and press OK on the error message dialog box."

This worked for Bob Neuman and it worked for me. Good luck!
