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,

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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 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 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.
 

A:Microsoft Works 2000

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.

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.
http://www.openoffice.org/

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)

good luck.

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 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.
 

A:Microsoft Works 9.0 and Microsoft Office 2010 compatibility

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.

My husband is a pilot. When we had Windows 95 & Microsoft Works 4.0, he saved his flight logbook on a Works spreadsheet program, then fortunately onto a floppy disk. When we upgraded to Windows 98 we also installed Microsoft Office Pro 97. Now when we try to print something off the Works spreadsheet (like only 1 page), we can't. It tries to print all 100 or so pages, & gives us a message about having over 500 fonts. Is there anyway to take the data off the floppy & transfer it into Microsoft Excel 97? I've tried, but it comes out in a format that looks like hyeroglyphics. It would be absolutely impossible to manually re-enter all the massive amounts of data on the floppy, & it of course has to be added to all the time as flight hours are added.

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...

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 am having trouble printing in Microsoft Works Database. I get the "Out of Memory" message, and have tried all of the things I have seen posted in various places to resolve the problem, but to no avail. It is the old 2003 version of Works. I am trying to print from an HP computer to an HP printer as well.

How would anybody here know what you may have all ready tried but did not work for you?

Does the problem only occur with MS Works or does it occur for other programs?

I have read that the compatible version is Microsoft Works 9 for Vista, but I've also read that there is an update for Microsoft Works 8 which makes it compatible with Vista. I just wondered if there is someone in the know who can tell me if Microsoft Works 8 will work with Vista, as I have a chance to get this at a very cheap price?

A:Microsoft Works 8

My version of Works is 8.5, and is working fine on Vista Home Premium 32b

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.

I hope I put this in the right place. But here is my problem. I use Works 9 for my word processor and I create a lot of documents on it.

My last computer ran XP, I had to replace it and the new computer is running W7, SP1 with IE 10.

When I open Works 9 and, say am outlining whatever and I go to set a tab in the ruler. Almost every time I do this a window opens that has Tabs in the upper left hand corner and a number of tabs already preset. I would like to turn this off as it is irritating to try to set a tab and almost every time you do this window opens.

Thanks.

Somehow, somewhere along the way I have developed some problems and have no idea how to correct it. 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 sending a hijack report to see if the problem may be there. Thank youi! Nola
