Hi,

The original Word document may have a link to the recovery document in the AutoRecovery temp folder which is probably not the same path on the WinXP system.

Try disabling "Auto-recovery" from the original system, then saving the document again.
In Word 2000, select Tools > Options
Go to the "Save" tab and uncheck "Save autorecoevry info every:"
Resave document and try it on your WinXP system

or

Check on the "File Location" tab of Tools > Options of the original system and note the location of the "AutoRecovery Files" and set the same on the WinXP system by recreating the folder(path) using Windows Explorer

The problem cannot be resolved by following the 1st recommendation. Can you advise how to find out the file location in the 2nd recommendation?
