I have several password protected documents from an old crapped out computer that are done in a very old version of WordPerfect and I cannot open them up in my current computer's "Microsoft Works Word Processor". The ones that are not password protected open up fine, but the ones that have password protection bring up the following Windows message: "Works cannot open (said document). The file may be in use by another application, the file may not be supported by any of the installed converters, or the file may be corrupt". I have tried all other "converters" that are a part of my Microsoft Works Word Processor. If my old computer still worked, I could simply remove the password and I would have no problem, but as you can see, this is not the case. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Everyone,I did a quick search of the forums and didn't come up with anything similar to the problem I've just started having with MS Word.I'll be working on a document and saving my work every so often. Then all of a sudden Windows starts telling me that it can't save the file. I goofed and didn't think quick enough to get a screen shot of that message.However, I was able to copy past everything, from the document I was trying to save, to a new document, which is what I did as I had already had the same thing happen to me a couple of times before. Then when I clicked 'Yes' I get "This" message.OK, so then I click 'No on exit to close the document and got "This" asking if I wanted to save the changes to the document. Then I Just click No because that's the only option that will let me close that application. Then when I try to open it again I get "This" dreaded message.Have any of you guys ever run into anything like this before?It doesn't seem to matter if the document only has ten pages or if it has one hundred ten pages. Nor does it seem to matter if I have a lot of images in it or none at allI am at a loss as to what to do to prevent this form happening in the future. At least I have a work around that I can use so as not to lose my entire document..., but this is still just a bit nerve wercking.Thanks for any help or advice guys.Wendy

Please consider this only a suggestion as I am not sure I understand the program problem you

are having, . . as I am only familiar with word pad, etc.

but open a new file of the word processor and click save and then check the drop down under
the title window and check the options you have to save as, is it possible that an optional choice may be what you need to do ?

Are you able to find the documents that you are not able to open ?

Um, sorry to bother you all with this but I need a bit of help with a works word file. The program does not want to open saying that it is in use, format not supported or its corrupt. I've tried re-installing works to no effect and I doubt its corrupt since I can see the text inside with a little space like a square between each character. Unfortunatly, its image heavy since its college work.

Hi Everybody,

I have been using the word processor in Microsoft ? Works Version 6.0 to do a lot of writing and I have just had a devastating experience with it.

When I had first started using it I had learned early on that I had better be making a habit of saving my work regularly or the Microsoft Grinch would jump up and tell me how sorry it was that Microsoft Works had encountered a problem and wanted to go home without letting me save my work.

So saving my work after ever third of forth paragraph has become a habit with me, and that's what makes what happened to me today even more puzzling.

I'm running Windows XP home edition with SP2. I had seven or eight IE browsers open doing some research and trying to get some photos downloaded for the project that I'm working on.

SpyBot started telling me about a change that had been made saying "User-Specific browser toolbar value deleted" and something about BarLayout. At the same time whichever IE I was using when that message had popped up would quit letting me copy\paste.

But then when I would close that browser I would get another SpyBot alert saying that that same value had been added. The only action that SpyBot would accept in either case was for me to press the OK key otherwise it just kept spitting back that same alert.

At the same time I was using Yahoo messenger to chat with a friend and things just started going haywire. So I hurried up to save and close everything that I had open and clicked t... Read more

A:Trouble With Microsoft Word Processor

I am not a great authority, but it looks like you may have prematurely closed the Works document especially if you were downloading something that you were incorporating into the text. The garbage at the bottom of the recovered document seems to be formatting information. I doubt that a good saved copy now exists, especially if you have saved over any prior file name.
When I am working on a document that is of much length, I generally do a manual save at a good place to stop (chapter one, for example) and then continue, but rename the file and perform periodic saves to the new file. That way, if one of these doesn't "take" I can at least retrieve a large portion of the text by returning to the saved document (chapter one). Later, I can always merge the major saved portions.

I bought my computer in 2008ish, maybe 2009, and it came with Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit. It also came with pre-installed software, and of those pre-installed software included Microsoft Works Word Processor. I upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit last week, and I have been painstakingly installing my programs back after I messed up the installation. First, I installed Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit, then I realized I put in the wrong disc so I then put in Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, then I upgraded to Ultimate 64-bit. All my programs got messed up in the process and I basically have a clean install of Windows 7 with a Windows.old folder containing my programs in a folder, which all need to be re-installed. I can see my Microsoft Works Word Processor, but it won't let me run the installation on it. I tried running it in compatibility modes for every available option, but nothing works. I also ran it as an administrator. How can I legally re-install these programs I purchased? I have tons and tons of .wps files that I want to be able to open with a program I purchased with my computer. Yes, I have heard of OpenOffice and it does not support .wps files. I do have Microsoft Office Professional 2013 installed, but it can't seem to open .wps files (unless I'm wrong).

Microsoft Office 2013 is capable of opening Works 6-9 documents in a Compatibility mode.

To do that in Word 2013 you need to go File - Open - Computer - Browse.
In Open window you have to select a filter:

I reset the Microsoft Works Word Processor to default with a different font size. It worked fine. Then, while setting up a printing for envelopes, I tried to reset that as a default as well. Big mistake. Now when I open the word processor program it comes up as the envelope function and I cannot get the original page for letter writing back. Microsoft was no help when I accessed their web page (too far over my head in their explanations as well as being not too user-friendly for my level of understanding). Does anyone know how I can get it open the right way again? I use Window's Vista on an Acer Extensa 5620. Thanks.

A:Solved: Microsoft Works Word Processor

This only applies for the Works word processor, the common one in Works NOT spelled with a capital W, as in Word.

First, only do this with the Work word processor not going.
If you really only want one default word processing template in Works (and it sounds like you do), and if you have no other templates that you want (and it sounds like you don't) then you can just delete all templates in this folder:
Then, just start up the word processor and see if it is fixed.

If that is not the case, just let me know and I will adjust and tell you what else you can do, instead.

I am a university student and today when I went to open my class notes in Microsoft Works Word Processor I found nothing but a blank page.

I have since turned my computer on and off. I have tried converting the file to rich text format and back, to no avail. The size of the document says a mere 16 kb now as well.

I opened the seemingly blank document with notepad, and found a bunch of jargon along with 2 interesting clues. One was very small pieces of my class notes here and there, in between the coding and jargon. The second was towards the end of the coding, where it said various random things about my HP printer.

(no clue how it got lost)When I go to My Documents I can see all the files from history but I cannot open any of them. When I try to open a file it directs me to buy Word Perfect(R) 11 software with an upgrade to Word Perfect 12 for $99.00. Should I buy the software? Is there a way to move the files back into the Word Processor history? Next to each file in My Documents it says WPEntrust Signed Document.

A:Microsoft Works Word Processor History

MS Works has nothing to do with Word Perfect! MS Works is related to MS Office. If you are looking for your documents, have you tried launching Works and going to File/Open to see what is there? Perhaps you had a trial version of Word Perfect in your computer, too. If you like the word processor in Works, perhaps you should upgrade to Word 2007 instead -- Word is a much larger, more diversified program than the abbreviated version in Works.

Hi there guys.
Okay so here's the issue.
I have an HP Pavillion a813w that had Microsoft Works pre-installed on my computer.

Now, I just did a roll back, totally reformated my computer on April 10th to total factory settings once more, so my computer is relatively unbuggy, or so I thought.
However, when I was sent a document from a friend today via AIM, and I scanned it with my virus scanner, it was clean. It had me say yes, I agree to the EULA, and then as it was loading up, it just seemed to disappear, I couldn't open up the document, and I have tried rebooting, and restoring both and it would do nothing.

I'm wondering if there's a reason for this..

On my old Thinkpad Windows XP notebook, which is almost three years old, the language bar is now starting to malfunction. I usually need to switch between English (US) and Chinese (PRC), and the language bar has been working for me in doing so until recently. Now, when I open Microsoft Word 2003 and try to switch to Chinese, Word freezes and I have to use the Task Manager to end the Word process.

I have been able to switch to Chinese (PRC) on my desktop with the language bar, but even when I do so, the language bar still says I'm on the English language (the only reason I know I'm on Chinese is because there's a check mark next to the language).

My dad had recently installed an update from Java, and in the process inadvertently installed OpenOffice as well. He had also installed Windows Live Messenger and in the process installed Rhapsody player as well. I did a System Restore to a point before he installed any of this, but that didn't help at all.

What could be the problem? I've cleared my registry. I've tried using the language bar in safe mode and it has the same problem. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the East Asian language files, but that hasn't helped at all.

Is there any program that I should use to diagnose this problem? And afterwards, how do I solve it?

I have some old files transferred from a previous computer that say they are "Microsoft Works Word Processor" files. I have a version of Works on my current machine, but its word processor element appears to be Word. Word does not like these files. I am pretty sure that I have tried to OpenOffice them as well.

I have created in Microsoft Word 2003 on an XP OS some lengthy documents. I created them using a view setting of 150%.

I sent them to my employer, who is using Windows 98 and Microsoft Word 97. My boss opened them with his system and they displayed on the screen at a view of 200%. He wants me to send him Word documents that he can open from the CD-R that I send that will automatically display at 100% view on the screen so that he does not have to set the view for each document as it displays.

So what is the answer.

Is there a way that I can save my created documents so that when my boss gets them on a CD-R that they will open on his system at a view setting of 100%.

Is there also a way that his system can be set to default to 100% in reading from the CD-R.

My boss does not want to copy the documents to the system hard disk from my sent CD-R, preferring to read and copy directly from the CD-R that I send, so that the original documents will not accidentally be changed.

Any help would be appreciated.

If that is the case, then yes it does run older versions of word. In the sense that if you have a word document that was made and saved in Word 2003 it would work in 2007.

Just like when you make something in word 2007 you are able to save it as a Word 03-07 document so it works on both versions of Microsoft Word.

alright my problem is that i have already used microsoft word 2000 for awhile now and its been fine, no problems whatsoever then about week ago it started doing a lot of crazy stuff when i opened it. this happens every single time. i open it and it states that
it is preparing to install microsoft word 2000 (i already have it installed) then it states that it must gather the required information. At first i thought it was an update so i decided to let it continue. when it was finished it said that "the feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removable disk that is not availible. please insert the microsoft word 2000 disk and hit ok" alright the thing was it wasn't an update. and i couldn't find my word CD because it hasn't asked for one ever since i installed it. I then hit cancel and everything went away and about a minute later my microsoft word 2000 came up and it had no updates and was functioning fine but it was going about half the speed it usually does. Other than that there were no other problems and i continued with my work. The only thing that really bugs me is that this entire process takes about 5 minutes every time I start up... so its kinda of a pain... is there any way to get rid of this? thx to all... Peace Out

Here is a strange one. I have Microsoft Word 2000 on a computer running Windows XP SP3. I just began having a problem opening documents directly in Word. The documents will open but they are not right. For example, I have a document that is passworded out. Within Word, the document will open, but it does not ask for a password, and the contents of the document come up scrambled. Here is an excerpt of what it looks like:


This goes on for 20 pages.

However, if I go into Windows Explorer and open the document by double clicking on it there, it correctly asks for the password and opens fine. Weird, no?

I tried opening other documents from Word that do not have passwords. They open, but the documents include a bunch of formatting instructions that usually remain hidden. But from Windows Explorer they open fine. Here is an example:

Document opened with Windows Explorer

EVAN: English form of Welsh Iefan, meaning "God is gracious."

After recent full system recovery caused by one or more virus, I am unable to re-install Microsoft Word or Word Perfect on my Compaq Presario, which has Windows XP. Microsoft Word will sometimes start the process but then just stops, giving no indication of what steps to take next or what the problem is. Word Perfect seems to start the process each time but then gets hung up with updating what it describes as the SHFolder.dll. Have waited as long as 20 minutes for this update. The screen does show activity but it just never seems to get done. I cannot take the installation process past that point.

Any suggestions on how I can correct or cure this problem?

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. ...

Don't mind the curious ones, but I'm one of them. So anyway, almost one year ago now, the Word macro virus W97M/Marker.C was running rampant around Gordon College, with many teachers and students alike being infected. I was even infected with it thanks to one of my professors posting an assignment description document that had it. I was running AVG 9.0 at the time, and it was flagged many a time over. I think there were like six or so instances. My memory may be flaky, as my laptop has undergone many reformats since then, but what I do remember is trying to ignore AVG's warning, due to the fact that AVG has given me many false positives when I used it. The message Word gave me was that the document couldn't be opened because it wasn't available. But the strange part of that is that AVG had not removed anything from the file. I can think of two reasons why the file wouldn't run with the virus in it. Tell me which, if either, is correct. One is that Microsoft has since changed the macro format from 2003 and earlier versions of Word simply due to the many viruses that once existed for it, or two, that message was a very convoluted way of telling me that Windows 7 no longer supports Virtual device Drivers (*.vxd) as I was able to open the file after it had been cleaned up by Eset NOD32.

A:random curiosity about MS Word macro viruses and why (thank the Lord), they don't work in Word 2007/2010

I don't know the particulars of the macro virus you mention, but with Microsoft Office 2003, a significant change was implemented that effectively stopped the propagation of macro viruses.

Prior to Office 2003, macros were enabled by default, and opening a document with macros and auto-execute meant the macros were automatically executed (and thus the virus could infect and propagate).

With Office 2003, macro security was introduced. With a Microsoft Office 2003 default install, macros need to be signed with a certificate issued by a trusted root CA. Macros that are not signed will not be executed. Users have to explicitly lower the macro security level for unsigned macros to execute. Almost all macro viruses were unsigned.

When you make an uppdate on the menu the sub-numbers disapear so it is

Also in 2003 you get a menu to the right where you can change in the list not only the types but also the numbering. Is there something like that in 2007?

In regards to changing the numbering, you now right click on one of the actual numbers within the document and you can change the numbering from there.

Hope that all makes sense.

Hi All,

I have had a rash of Windows error messages saying that Windows couldn't open several of my .wps files and saying that they might be corrupt.

I don't want to give up on those documents just yet so I downloaded a Microsoft Office Word Viewer, the old one, to see if I could open them with it.

Then, following the installation instructions, I clicked on the wdviewer.exe installer and got yet another error message.

This one said; Windows Installer ! The system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation.

Now, as I am the only system administrator of my PC and I haven't set anything like that, that I can remember at least, I would like to know where to look to see the policies that I'm supposed to have set.

Is that something that I would have done through the Control Panel or through the tools settings in Firefox, and why would it only affect this one download?

I mean I download, install and run everything else that I want to on this thing, with no trouble, so why would that program be any different?

Thanks for any help.

I have just done a clean install of W7 Ultimate 64 bit on 2 different Desktops. One is a Fujitsu Siemens Esprimo 5905P the other originally an HP Pavillion which now has an Asrock Mobo. I have reinstalled all my programs--no problems there. I use MS Works 8 Word Processor. This worked fine on both DT's under XP. However, it now works only on the Fujitsu, but not on the HP. The problem is it doesn't find the Files in My Documents. With Word Processor open, when I try to open a Document, the My Documents window comes up, with the message No Files found---there is no list of Files shown---though all files are in place in My Docs Folder. They can all be opened by individual clicking in that Folder---they just don't appear in Word! I have repaired Word Processor---I have uninstalled it and reinstalled from original CD. I have even cleared My Docs Folder and reloaded all Files---makes no difference.
I don't like MS Office---so who can tell me how to get this to work--as it does in the other PC---and as it did on both machines under XP SP3!
I get no error messages of any kind.
Thanks, Robbie

Dear Robbie,

Please post a screenshot of that very moment, when Word is displaying empty folder in the open window.

My OS is Windows ME. I had saved several word processor documents to CD disc and was working on one. I closed it out, then tried to open it again and got the following prompt: "Works can't open M:\report.wps. The file may be used by another application, the file format may not be supported by any of the installed converters or may be corrupt". This happened to three other files on disc, but the last one is ok. Since I'm not a wizard at this stuff, is there anyway to get the files to open? If it has been corrupted, I'm probably screwed. If not, what can I do? The stuff on disc wasn't something I can duplicate from memory. I made the file with Adaptic CD Creator (which is also supposed to create regular CD-ROM type discs, but I've never been able to get it to do that). I tried the program's own "scan disc" to repair it, but it's a lot more limited than my computer's scan disc and it didn't seem to do much.

1. You can't repair a CD-ROM with scandisk.
2. Files on CD-ROM cannot be changed unless you have a re-writable CD-ROM disk.
3. I would never suggest anyone even attempt to work directly from a CD-ROM, rewritable or not.
4. Copy files from CD-ROM to hard drive, then right-click in Windows explorer and remove the read-only under properties.

Ask in the Other Software forum about CD-writer software.

Sorry! Wish I could help more.

Yesterday my Microsoft Works Word Processor was here, today it is not. I tried system restore, but there were no changes. Where did it go, and how do I get it back? It was on my computer when I bought it. I have windows XP, Version 2002, SP 3. I'd appreciate any help.

I tried right clicking a document I created using Microsoft works word processor, and a window pops up saying, This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the folder options control panel. I'm not sure what to do with this.

I have a problem with a slow Word Processor (Word Perfect 12). When I try to print it hangs up. This also happens when I copy and paste something from the internet into my word processor. I find that all actions are slow. I have tried my Open Office and the same thing happens there.

I was told that I might not have enough physical memory, also something about log files and Index.dat? How do I find how much physical memory I have.

I have many photos on my system. I had both PhotoShop Element 4 & 7 installed but have just uninstalled version 4 with no results.

I have Windows XP home - 111GB- 1 GB Ram.

Any help will be appreciated!
