The most obvious question:

Has the computer you deployed you application to got Office installed? If so, is it installed in the place you are expecting? Hardcoding locations like that is a bad move, since you cannot guarantee that the installation directory is the same...


"thank you for the reply.
i have just given the default path of MS Excel&Ppt.so plz guide me if there is some other way .if possible plz give the code for the same.
yes i know that there would a case were the default directory would be different in some cases but i dont know how to go the other way.
please help me."


Don't give a path at all! If it is installed, Windows should know where it is:
ProcessStartInfo runMe = new ProcessStartInfo();
runMe.FileName = "WINWORD.EXE";
//runMe.Arguments = "myArguments";
Process.Start(runMe);
Try it: you will see what I mean...:laugh:

MS office works properly in Compile time that is whn the project is not deployed,but after Deployment it doesn't work.no action is seen after user clicks on menu bar option plz guide me.
Depending on the system you can find the install location for example in 32 bit environment from:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Word\InstallRoot\Path

and 64 bit
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Word\InstallRoot\Path

The path is version dependent so use the correct version number.

You can always post a new question. In that post include the error messages if any. Also before posting the question modify your code so that you check if the process start gives an error and check that output on the deployment machine.
