MS office works properly in Compile time that is when 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.

Here's my code:
//Process p = null;
   System.Diagnostics.ProcessStartInfo runMe = new System.Diagnostics.ProcessStartInfo();
   runMe.FileName = "WINWORD.EXE";
catch (Exception ex)
   Response.Write("<script>alert('Microsoft Word is not installed.');</script>");
ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(this.GetType(), this.UniqueID, "window.close();", true);

First thing to check: do you have office installed on the PC you deployed to? Because if you don't, your app will not work...
Even if you do, you do realize that the WinWord window will open on the Server, not the Client, right?

You can't.

Security stops you from running applications on the client from the server: that is called "Probable Virus Activity"...
