The computer I am currently using has Microsoft works, useless in my opinion. When I create a document in the works word processor, and then try to send it to someone who does not have Works, it opens on their computer as a mish-mash of squares, symbols, letters, etc.
I tried saving it in another format, but the same result occured. Is there a solution to this other than spending a few hundred dollars on Office or Word? Thanks for any help.

Welcome to the forum.

Save it as a Rich Text Format file type (.rtf) or you can also have them install the converter which allows Word users to open up Works files.

I was typing a document, saved it and closed it. When I went back to get I got this message:"In order to open this file Works needs to use a file converter, which may pose a security risk if the file you are opening is a malicious file. Choose OK to open this file if you are sure it is from a trusted trusted source."

When I click OK I get this:"Works cannot open (file name). The file may be in use by another application, the format may not be supported by any of the installed converters, or the file may be corrupt." and then receive a blank page.

Does anyone know what this is and how I can get my doc. back. This is happening with a few docs. but not all.

Thank You

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 ?

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

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.

I really need to get this open so I can print it and hand it in, any ideas?

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).

A:Microsoft Works Word Processor

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:
All files (*.*) or Works 6 - 9 Document (*.wps)

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:
C:\Users\<YourName>\AppData\Roaming\Template\
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.

(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.

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 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. I did perform a printer test today, and was wondering if that did anything to delete or corrupt my notes.

I performed a system reset back to 5 PM (the file appeared blank at 6 PM, when it said it was last modified). The file is still blank. I have also checked through the recycle bin, nothing. I've got Windows Vista, and my computer is a Gateway Notebook, 5 months old.

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..

I'm assuming you're talking about the new office 2007? meaning word 2007?

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.

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.

A:MS Works Word Processor

Don't know what's going with the installation of the Word viewer, but I will tell you about opening up .wps files:MS Works and MS Word (full version) can open up .wps files. You would either have had to save the Works file as a .doc file first, or convert the file using Word after the Works Converter was added to your Word program.Read this Microsoft KB article regarding this issue: How to open a Works document in WordMy students have come to me many times for assistance with something like this, and without the converter, you can't open it. Rather, you can, but it looks like jibberish.

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've tried to install WINWORD for XP but the system won't allow install....so now i'm stuck with a word processor that saves in .wps when all the agencies use .doc, this must be happening to lots of people out there buying the latest machines, I suppose it will be okay in a few years when everyone is using MS works (this looks the way to go for word processing)....but at the moment they are not.
i've spent the last few days going to sites and forums to look up people with similar problems and there are people just like me with my exact problem, i've looked for any clues or answers but none of them look like they will work so i'm gonna have to rig up my old windows 95 / 32 MB memory ...

A:xp works 7.0 word processor

re..

also...before anyone replies with:
works 7.0 allows you to save as .doc file,.....yes it does, but from what i've been reading on other sites when you open that works .doc file in WINWORD it screws it all up into a mess....I may as well just send my resume as a .txt file in notepad.
Also, there is a convertor software that allows conversion from .wps to .doc, but not all agencies who ask for your resume in .doc format will have this convertor software....and I heard that the convertor software also messes up the document...so there is no way around this. I'll have to wait a few years until i see agencies and companies wanting your resume sent in .wps format.

Hi,

I have Wndows XP Home with Microsoft Works Word Processor.

I find that while writing the application continually/periodically fades back to a non-editable state and I have to continually re-click back on it so that my typing actually appears in the doc. Sometimes I have been writing for quite some time only to realise that it is not appearing in the doc. This becomes very frustrating when one is writing a manuscript.

I hope someone can shed light on why this is happening and what I can do to stop it?

Thanks in anticipation.

Hello, everyone. My name is Kaydee and I'm new to the board.

Can anyone tell me if there is a recovery process I can perform on a Compaq Presario to retrieve acidentally-deleted text?

If your running XP you may be able to do a system restore to before you deleted the text providing the document was resident on the system.

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.

I have MS Works Word Processor version 8.5 and it has worked perfectly for some time, but recently when I try to copy and paste it says "The information you copied exceeds the size limit for pasting into the word processor. Try reducing the size of your selection, & then copy & paste again" It doesn't matter how much I copy (5 words or 50 words) it does the same thing.
If I copy my information and paste it to notepad first then copy from notepad & paste to MS Works it works fine no matter how many words I copy.
This happens whether I copy from Internet explorer or other documentation.
Thanks for any ideas.
