Q: microsoft works 8 and microsoft works 2000

On the new Dell PC (XP software) I am planning on buying, it comes loaded with Microsoft Works 8.

My existing PC is running on Win 98 2nd Ed with Microsoft Works 2000.

Question: Is Works 8 capable of reading files that were created on Works 2000?

Thanks,

Hello,

I have been using Microsoft Works database function for many years. I am a secretary at a sportsmens club and I have the membership developed in a database that contains name,address,zipcode,ss#,drivers licence # etc.

From this databsae I create labels to be used to mail out our club newsletters. We currently have over 1400 members that we store pertinent information on.

Using the label program in Microsoft works in previous versions such as 4.0 or 4.5 has been a breeze and always worked wonderfully.

We upgraded our computer system and now have the microsoft works version 2000. We were able to load our databse in this version and have been using it quite regularly. We are continually adding to this database daily.

My problem is, I have yet to figure out how to develop the labels for the mailing addresses. You would think this would be an easy process but when I try to do this I get an error message saying I have characters such as periods etc and cannot produce these labels. That would be quite a bit of extra work to remove any of those special characters and before I would do that I would want to make sure if that is really what the problem is. Why would it be a problem in works 2000 and not works 4.5

Right now I have the program loaded on a laptop with works 4.5 just to devleop the labels. I really do not want to convert to using just 4.5 because of the dates that I use in the databse and with the newer version it recognizes dates in the year 2000 and greater.... Read more

I recently purchased microsoft works 2000 after having microsoft office. I uninstalled office and put on 2000 because I use a laptop and was trying to conserve space. I installed works 2000 using the least spaced installation. Very few or no templates. The task launcher appears immediately, but to go to any application takes forever. Office was much faster. I can't figure out why. Any suggestions. Thanks Leo

This occurs often when your hard drive needs to be defragmented. Hard drives particularly ought to be defragmented after uninstall/reinstall or after deleting or adding lots of files to the hard drive. Have you defragged?

I have installed Works 2000 on to my PC which is running Win 98 se. The original install worked fine. I had cause to uninstall it and then re-install. However, upon re-installing the following message very quickly appears. " Install was interupted! You may not have sufficient memory or Hard Disk space for the install process to work succesfully or may have an antivirus application running." There is 18gig of drive space available and ample memory.

I'm wondering if there is still components of the first installation resident which are some how halting the re-installation.

I would appreciate guidance on this.

I notice you did not comment on the third possibility listed. Did you forget to turn off your virus checker before the installation? A good idea with troublesome installations is to close out everything except Explorer and Systray by using Ctrl+Alt & Delete. That process not only frees up memory but turns off any program that might interfere with the installation.

I recently did a total restore on my computer and have had quite a few problems. I think I have fixed most of them. Except, when I download Works 2000, I get the message after restarting. "Windows can not access one or more required files. The files may have been renamed, deleted, or moved. Try installing works, then starting the process again." Okay, I have tried that and it still doesn't work. I have done it over and over again. And still no luck. I had it on my computer before I did the total restore. So can anyone help?

I have a Compaq laptop which came with Works 2000 installed but when I try to use it I get a message that says: " Works cannot locate Wizard files..The files may be lost or corrupted. Please run set up again to reinstall...

So I did a search and found Microsoft 2000 set up..It gives you 3 options: 1. Remove 2. Reinstall..it reinstalls Works 2000 by using the installation you last selected. 3. Change installation..lets you choose a different installation like complete instead of minimum or vice versa....I am just copying what I read......

So I chose # 2 and go this message:"Set up could not launch MDAC installation and i get the saome message with option #3..I didn't even attempt #1 because I am afraid..I don't have a disc..

any advice?? Microsoft ME came with this computer.. I hope I gave you enough info to help me..

Before I begin, a HUGE thanks to Big-K in directing me what to do with the dll. files! Thanks a million!

Ended up it needed two dll. files. Placed them both in my system32 folder and then the error message came up as something along the lines as "please reinstall to add missing components".

But I can't. Whenever I try to reinstall or unistall an error message comes up toward the end of the loading saying "Setup unable register tasks". Then when I press "Okay" it goes to the installation screen and says, that it was interrupted and my program may not work properly. Then an error message pops up saying, "Fatal Error in Installation".

How am I supposed to fix that?! LOL

Is there no hope for my poor Microsoft Works 2000? =(

Any help with clearing this matter (hopefully for once and for all) is greatly appreciated! Thanks so much.

PS. When I tried to open the processor this error message popped up: "The application failed to initalize properly (0x0000142). Click on OK to terminate the application." Before that it said something very similar to "cannot find missing files. They were either removed or moved. Please reinstall program to fix it."

I've tried to reinstall it and repair it and unistall it - but then I run into the problem described above.

Hi,
this program was already installed on my old computer when I bought it new. By the time I got rid of the computer, it wouldn't save anything to a disk. I had a word document that I wanted to save, so I mailed it to a friend. When I got the new computer set up, she sent it back to me. The new computer did not have 'Word' on it, so I installed microsoft word from the 'works suite' disk I had that came with my old computer. My problem is, I didn't have the case with the CD number on it. I have the works suite (that word is included on) product number, but to open word on the new computer, it says I need the CD number. Does anyone know any way around this? It is not a 'life or death' situation, but it is a book I have been working on. Fortunately, I had printed out most of it, but I would really like to have it on the computer to make changes, etc. Thanks so much for any help.

Couple things:
Open Office can read WORD files-- and is a free Office Suite--- download it, use it, give it away---- all legal, all Open Source. Suite includes a wor4d processor that will read and write .doc files (as well as many other formats), as well as including a spreadsheet, and presentation software.

Second option is AbiWord--- another free alterantive to WORD. This is not a full suite, but a great little word processor which can read and write .doc files (& a whole lot more)

I recently purchased an ASUS Windows 8.1 64 bit computer.  I transferred my Microsoft Works Version 8.0 word processor and spreadsheet files from my old computer onto the new computer.  I just purchased the Microsoft Office 2013 Home and Student Edition (64 bit version) from an online vendor and installed the software onto my new computer. 
 
I have no problems opening my Works spreadsheet files in Excel.  However, when I attempt to open a Works word processor file in Word, I get gibberish.  I did some research online and found out that there is a Microsoft tool called Works 6-9 Converter which allows one to open Works files in Word.
 
I downloaded the Works 6-9 Converter tool from the Microsoft Support website and installed it on my PC.  However, when I subsequently attempted to open a Works word processor file in Word, a dialog box appeared with the error message "Word cannot start the converter Wks9Pxy.cnv" and the file did not open properly (i.e., I got gibberish).
 
I did a little more research online and found out that uninstalling the Works 6-9 Converter, then downloading and installing the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package, and finally reinstalling the Works 6-9 Converter may correct this problem.  I followed these steps, but unfortunately when I attempt to open a Works word processor file in Word, I get the same error message and the file does not open properly. ...

Microsoft Office 2010 is installed on my PC (Dell Studio XPS8100, Windows 7). Another member of the household has asked whether she can install Microsoft Works 9.0 on my PC, now that her PC is on its last legs. (She greatly prefers Works over Office, for its simplicity and because of her long-term familiarity with Works.) If Works 9.0 is installed onto my PC, would this cause problems for Office 2010, Works 9.0, and/or my PC? If so, are there workarounds? Thanks.

The official "word" from Microsoft (pun intended) is that Office & Works can co-exist on the same PC.

Provided you do not intend to share documents between Office & Works (ie both suites will be used separately), there are no "workarounds" or special procedures you need to remember when using them.

If this is the only occurance I wouldn't worry about it. Paging is one way MS keeps up with whats going on. It could be that you had several things open and it lost track of where things were. This mostly happens on older machines running older ms operating systems. There are ways to make it perform better. Do a search on your error (page fault kernel 32 Windows xx) OS and see what others have done.

A:microsoft works 8

You aren't the only one experiencing this problem. I did a little research on this. MS Works 9 was the edition that was recommended for Vista. Some Works 8 users have been able to run it in Vista (those using the 8.5 edition or later seem to be getting fewer error messages - but not all); but it seems most users are getting the error message you got.

You might want to try using the free office suite LibreOffice (formerly known as OpenOffice). It will open your Works files. It will not save files in that format, but you will be able to save them in MS Office formats, or the default Open Document format. LibreOffice is available from www.libreoffice.org

If you are looking for something with a calendar, try Windows Live Essentials email program Windows Live Mail. It has a calendar available as part of the program (similar to Outlook). http://explore.live.com/windows-live-essentials.

I am attempting to set up a credit card log in microsoft works.

A:microsoft works

While I never use Works, that problem is also in Excel so will comment on that, it should apply.

You need to format the cell holding the credit card number as text, because it is interpreting the card number as a very long number and truncating it as you see.

You could try widening the column also, however using text would help more.
Try using spaces in the number? (i.e. 1234 5678 0123456)

Hi, I have about 20 PCs here at work, all with Windows XP Pro SP3, and only a portion of them does it do anything at all when I go to print to the shared FAX via Microsoft FAX...

I've been trying to get it to work on mine first, then once I figure that out, I can get it working on the rest of them... So, I went to one of the computers that it does work on to find some files that my system said it was missing when I tried to open up the Microsoft FAX Console... these files were, FXSAPI.DLL, FXSTIFF.DLL, fxslnt.exe. Once I copied those to my system, the Microsoft FAX Console would open up, but still it did nothing when I would try to print to the shared FAX. I noticed in the configuration it was set to use my Sprint Aircard as a fax, so I disabled it and went through the configuration again, so that it wouldn't have a local fax to try to use, but that still didn't work...

I am in the calendar program, and am trying to add holidays and it just won't add the holidays. It says it has done it. And when I try to reapply the holidays, it asks me if I want to replace the holidays I previously added? If someone could help me I would greatly appreciate it.
tks
Rob
 

A:microsoft works

You don't say which version you have. I have Works 5 -- although I never use Calendar.

It's probably added them, but only for the years up to when your version came out. Go back to eg: December 2000 and check.

If an address book disappears, what is the the suffix to look for and where should it reside on the C drive?
 

A:Microsoft works

Hi andy meyrick

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

Is this the Windows Address Book you are referring to?
Outlook Express also uses the Windows Address Book.

If so, do a Search for the file extension: *.wab

If not, let us know what operating system you are using and program the address book was associated with.

I do not remember an Address Book associated with Microsoft Works, but then again, I used Microsoft Works only briefly.

When I click to open many of my documents, all I get is a flashing cursor at the top left corner of a blank screen. What is the meaning of that?

A:Microsoft works

When I click on a document to open it, all I get is a blank screen with a flashing cursor in the top left corner. Does that mean my document is no longer available, or stuck someplace where I cannot get to it? I am using Microsoft works, which in the past has refused to allow me to open documents that I have created in "Works."

I just bought a new computer which has windows xp on it. My old computer
is using windows 98, my question is this. On the windows 98 machine I was using microsoft works version 6.0 spread sheet. The new machine has Excel
is there any way that I can convert the works files to excel files so that excel
can read the files. Or am I better off putting works spreed sheet on the new machine
Thanks Guys

A:microsoft works

Welcome Gary.

>> is there any way that I can convert the works files to excel files

Yes. In Works, choose Save As from the File menu. Under "Save As Type", there should be various Excel options.

>> am I better off putting works spreed sheet on the new machine

It's up to you. Excel has very many more features than Works spreadsheet ; then again, Works also comes with word processor and database applications, which you may not have on your new PC. If it's "Works Suite", then it also has Word. You could have Works and Excel on the new one, if space isn't an issue.

I can go into Microsoft Works Spreadsheet and it works just fine, just as everything else except Task Launcher. I can open it up, but anything in such as the letter catagory, tells e that it cannot perform the task that I am asking it to do. Some of the files may be missing or have been deleted and I need to reinstall. I have uninstalled, then reinstalled and just installed. Nothing seems to help it.

I am trying to uninstall Works 8.5 via add/remove programs but have been asked to insert a disk; which I do not have due to the software being pre-loaded. Is there a solution to this ? Also I have software for other applications: how do I remove their Microsoft counterparts ?

A:Microsoft Works 8.5 plus others.

It may have become corrupted. Are you able to reinstall Works by any chance? If so do it, and use a repair option if offered. Then after a reboot the uninstall should work.

Alternatively try the Control Panel method in Safe Mode (reached by tapping F8 repeatedly while booting up).

Also, there is always CCleaner which can often uninstall something that refuses to go.

Not sure what you mean by




Also I have software for other applications: how do I remove their Microsoft counterparts ?



Exactly what is it you refer to? Removing Windows Components can be dangerous, but some can be disabled or turned off I suppose. Please be more specific.

Fonts are in the C:\windows\fonts folder. You know what I did? I went into Windows Explorer and I created another folder right next to that one called Fontsmore, and I drug a whole bunch of fonts into that one. If I needed them again, I added them back in--but only as I needed them. Be careful which ones you move.

Have you recently installed a device driver or any software which installs a virtual driver (for example, a third-party firewall, antivirus, or cd-burning application)? Since Windows Safe Mode loads only a minimal set of system drivers & ignores third-party drivers, it could possibly be an issue with a recently introduced driver or any of the aforementioned types of software.

If that rings any bells, uninstall the offending software or driver and see if that allows Works to function in normal mode.

I have a Gateway NV53A computer running Windows 7 Home Premium. I have simple spreadsheets, databases, etc using Microsoft Works 6. I have installed the Microsoft Works converter from the Microsoft site but am still unable to open everything. I'm tired of wasting so much time and energy that I just want to purchase the Works program so I can complete my transfer of documents into Excel. I see on eBay that some are selling the Works 9 from their Dell computer. Is this ok for my computer and needs. I'm not quite a beginner, but not sure I'm intermediate....very technical I'm not, so please keep it simple! Thanks so much. P.S. this is my first post....Hoorah!!!

Hey Everyone,

Firstly, apologies as i know this is in the wrong section but i was struggling to find where else i could put it.

I'm doing a complete system clean out as my laptop has become bogged down by crap.

I'm removing all the old programs and applications from my system and have Microsoft Works and Microsoft Office 2010 installed on my computer. I want to remove Works but am cautious as i don't want to risk loosing Office 2010.

Help would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards
Lee Sampson

Uninstalling MS Works should have no affect on MS Word. Go Into Control Panel, then Programs then uninstall Works.
