Microsoft WorksSuite 2005-Why did microsoft give me works 2003 sp3 update?

Q: Microsoft WorksSuite 2005-Why did microsoft give me works 2003 sp3 update?

On my desktop (windows xp) I have Microsoft Works Suite 2005. Recently Windows update gave me an update for Microsoft Works Suite 2003. My computer accepted it ok........but, my laptop (windows vista) rejected the update? Is there an update for the 2005 version or do they just bunch them together?

Preferred Solution: Microsoft WorksSuite 2005-Why did microsoft give me works 2003 sp3 update?

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.)

Hi, I am not sure about this....

I run Secunia - the software updater/ checker and it tells me that this is outdated and needs a patch for "security reasons"

microsoft visual C++ 2005 redistributable package (x86)

Does anyone know what this is and do I really need to update it?

Obviously I can make a system image before installing in case anything goes wrong but I was just more curious to know what this is.


PS I am 32 bit!!

A:Update Needed: Microsoft visual C++ 2005 redistributable package

Microsoft Visual C++ is normally installed along side an application. They install runtime components of Visual C++ Libraries which are required to run applications developed with Visual C++ on a computer that does not have Visual C++ 2005 installed.

Theres a good chance that a piece of software on your system requires the C++ libraries to run, it is safe to leave the application on there, you might have issues with a specific program if you remove it.

If you can verify the update is coming from Microsoft, there should be no problem downloading an update for it.

The autocomplete feature in microsoft outlook 2003 only works with some of my contacts. Not sure why this is? For instance, I have many contacts that start with i, but when I type in i, only some of these contacts come up as possiblilities? Any and all suggestions as to what my be going on are very welcome. Thanks!

A:Microsoft outlook 2003, autocomplete only works with some contacts??

Have you rebuilt your autocomplete list?? This list is populated when you send emails. As a quick alternative, unplug your network cable, send a test message to all your contacts, then delete that email from outbox. This will populate all your contacts in autocomplete list. Hope this helps

Also I was wrestling to find out why autocomplete didn't work. The reason was, I was using default profile. You have to create a profile after upgrading from Outlook2000 to 2003. Control panel->Mail->Create Profile->New. Then only Outlook2003 setup .NK2 file for that profile.

Suddenly for no apparent reason I get the "microsoft works ad in update" saying if I have installed works change the path below. I havn't touched works besides to use it in over a year. If I just click ok it seems to unload a file real quick then pops on and says Done! But if whatever it is doing is done why is it coming on every single time I try and use works?? My desktop icon for MS Works will only run this above error then never opens. If I try and open works from the program list it opens but after a good 2-3 minute delay. Keep in mind I am VERY computer illiterate so clear, simple step by step instructions would be helpful

I was looking for some information on Works 8 and came across a Microsoft Works 8 Update


It doesn't give any instructions on how to install it and I don't know if I'm suppose to remove Works 8 before installing this 220MB update/upgrade. Although it does say if you have Works 8, download this.

I don't want to make problems with the current Works 8 version on my computer. This update removes Quickdraw and Word Art. Does that make the program more secure?

If anyone has any thoughts on this, I would appreciate it. Thank you.

Sincerely, Libra

A:Microsoft Works 8 Update (220MB)!

All you do is download it and run it. It will see your current version of Works 8 and upgrade it to the latest patch level. Updates such as this require the program to already be installed on your computer.

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.

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.

You may want to check, but on my Vista I don't see any new add-on and I don't even have C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Search Enhancement Pack folder. http://arstechnica.com/microsoft/news/2010...lbar-update.ars As part of its regular Patch Tuesday, Microsoft released an update for its various toolbars, and this update came with more than just documented fixes. The update also installs an add-on for Internet Explorer and an extension for Mozilla Firefox, both without the user's permission. As you can see in the Windows Update screenshot above, Microsoft does not indicate that the update will install anything for either browser. It's also not really clear what the installed extension actually does.

Checked via Google and this is a common problem but with an incredibly complex fix of the registry. I do have Outlook as part of the Office Suite but do not use it. I can live without the update but I am constantly reminded that updates are ready, etc. Any way to at least make the icon not appear other than to opt for no automatic updates?

NOTE: It is only the install that fails - "A problem on your computer is preventing updates from being downloaded or installed". I have no problem selecting and downloading updates.

I have tried a number of ideas posted here and elsewhere. But, so far, nothing has resolved the issue. This is not a result of a repair, serivice pack update, etc. I tried Dial-a-fix also, but it did not work either.

I have a new laptop with Windows XP SP2 on it, IE6 (though I use Firefox, not IE), and MS Office 2003 Student Edition. The latest update that popped up as "high priority" from Windows Update is this GDI+ Detection Tool (KB873374).

It sounds like you have to install it then run it and then visit MS Office website to check for updates...? Is this worth doing? Can it cause more problems than it will help? (I thought I've read about issues when updating MS Office with security patches...? And that you have to download yet something else to even check for Office security updates...?)

Or do Office security updates come through Windows Update, and I don't need to worry about this? (But if that's the case, then why even have this GDI+ thing available?)

I'm always worried about ending up with a bunch of conflicts with other programs like AVG, ZA, AutoGK, DVDShrink, etc. And I'm always hesitant to install something that has to run on my system.

I've got AVG and ZA, keep both up to date, and I have Automatic Updates turned on just to let me know when there's a critical update (so I don't have to visit the Windows Update site to get updates).

I was thinking I would only do the updates to Office that come through Automatic Updates and not worry about any others...

Also, what's the difference between Microsoft Update and Windows Update? Is it better to have Microsoft Update, or does that have its own set of problems associated with it? (A... Read more

A:Questions About Microsoft Gdi+ Detection Tool & Microsoft Update Vs. Windows Update

Well to start off the difference between windows update and microsoft update is as follows. Windows update is what originally comes with the computer and only updates the windows platform. If you choose to upgrade to the microsoft update it will check all of your microsoft programs for updates.
As far as going to the office website for updates... unless you want to install non-critical updates to your office suite then you shouldn't have to at all. Finally - that GDI+ detection tool is the little program microsoft uses to scan your computer for any of their products - that is if you use microsoft update and not the original windows update.
So if you like your computer to maintain critical updates by itself for the microsoft programs than yes use microsoft update and yes install the GDI+ decection tools.

Hope this helps you out!

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. ANY suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

I have enjoyed playing this Microsoft Links 2003 game for many years. Initially in Vista and then upgraded to Win 8 where I played it successfully. Since buying my new Dell Inspiron computer with a Win 10 operating system I am able to download the game but then when I try to start it I find that I can't open the programme and play it..

A:Microsoft 10 and Microsoft Links 2003

Does it give any kind of error or does it just not start?

Try running it in Windows XP compatibility mode by right clicking on the shortcut then selecting "Properties". Go to the Compatibility tab, check the box next to "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and select Windows XP. Checking "Run this program as administrator" in the same tab might help as well.

Keep in mind that that game is almost 13 years old, so it may just not be compatible anymore.

I hate the thought of having to use an MS account, but MS's frequent pestering is kinda doing what they intended - wearing me down to where I'm about to give in.

Should I? Is it that bad? Or should I continue to fight the good fight?

I am having a few issues with money 2005. Can any one recommend a programme that is similar to money but at a reasonable cost or free. Thanks in advance

A:Microsoft money 2005

If you want a free solution, it's online with Quicken (well, online they call it Mint but it's from the same people). Here's the link: Free Personal Finance Software, Budget Software, Online Money Management and Budget Planner | Mint.com.

If you prefer to keep it on your desktop, Quicken is excellent (and what I use) - though it does go for $40 (possibly more for S&H) if you choose the cheapest outlet for the basic edition - more if you want additional options. Here's the link: Quicken Deluxe 2010 - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com.

Here are four free financial managment software options (including mint mentioned above) which you can review to see which, if any, fits your needs: Free Personal Finance Software: Top 3 Free Online Finance Software Programs.

Finally, while this is a bit overwhelming in terms of the number of options - I've sorted to show just the free ones but you can expand the search if you want - here's a very comprehensive list of options to review: Personal Finance Software - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com. With 26 pages of listings, it's almost manageable - the full listing including options that aren't free is 883 pages!

I need more space in my computer and was wondering what the following software does and how important is it?????

Microsoft VIsual C ++ 2005 ATL Update kb973923- x8 251 KB
" " " " " " " " " "Redistributable 417 KB
" " " " " " " " " "Redistributable 294 KB

My computer needs are fairly simple - email, facebook,ebay, Genealogy research sites with pages printed
from the sites, playing a DVD once in a while but no music or music downloads, transferring photos from Nikon Camera to computer...I won't be using it for professional or more complicated things.

Thanx to all who sent in responses about HP bloat situation. It helped me to clean out the unnecessary HP files. I labeled myself as Intermediate in my self rating, but sometimes I fall into the borderline Intermediate category Thanx again for being here!

I have Googled Microsoft C ++ and still don't quite understand what this program is supposed to do.
That could be either because the explanations given are not user friendly or I am more on the beginner side of Intermediate than I thought. It is crunch time for me as far as space goes and I must remove all the unusable sofftware I can. I did read your information re all the HP bloat and have successfully removed as much of it as I can. Thanx to you and all subscribers who sent in their responses on the subject.

I have a Sony Vaio laptop - Vista 7 w/service pack - with broadband connection from Verizon.com. I use my computer for the most basic things like e-mail, facebook, ebay, genealogy research sites, huge file of genealogy research and family trees, transferring photos from Nikon camera to computer and once in a while I might play a DVD on it. I don't need fancy as you can see and don't have any business meeting things requiring power pointer, slides, etc. I do print out a good amount of pages from the internet. I use a HP Office Jet Pro L 7590 All-in-one with fax capability.

Whilst trying to restore my money 2005 back up to a new computer, I keep getting the message "money cannot locate ..... or cannot open it, possibly because it is a read-only file or you do not have permission to change it or your disk is write protected". It doesn't matter whether I try restoring it from my back up or a new file - still the same message. I've tried copying the file from my thumb drive onto C:drive but still the same message. Any suggestions? BTW I am the computer administrator.

A:Microsoft Money 2005

Hi welcome to the forum,
I have never used Money or whatever, but my question to you.
Is it the same OS as your prevous Computer?
Windows 7 stores things in a different place so maybe the file contians a link to it's original location so it won't be able to find whatever it's looking for.
Have you tried importing the data instead of copying it an opening it?

I'm on a fresh reformat, not a pre-built computer its a custom built with Windows 7 64bit professional. Just a quick question I went ahead and installed Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable X86 and X64 and by looking at my "uninstall or change a program" area I have 3 Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributables listed there, I'm assuming by accident Windows updates installed over one for a different version. I'm assuming the regular Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable is the X86? because the other two say X64. Now, should I leave it alone or can I go ahead and remove the older version of Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable? Which of those two X64 versions is older? and can remove.

A:Microsoft Visual C++ 2005
