Thanks to you all... 
The problem is, that the file winword.exe is in the directory 
'/mnt/windows/Programmi/Microsoft Office/Office', with a space between 'Microsoft' and 'Office', 
so when I try to enter that directory with '$ cd /mnt/windows/Programmi/Microsoft Office/Office' I get: 
	bash: cd: /mnt/windows/Programmi/Microsoft: No such file or directory 
. I'm afraid to change as root the dir's name into 'Microsoft_Office' for fear to compromise the correct working of 
Any hint about that? 
Thanks indeed,
