Word Conversion

A friend of mine has e-mailed me an English/Spanish translation using Word format on a Mac. However, when I try to open it I get the message ‘Word cannot start the converter mswrd632.wpc' Despite downloading Microsoft’s 2007 Compatibility Pack because I only have Word 2003 on my machine, I still get the same message. Your usual help please.

Thanks gengiscant! In the event, it seemed I didn't need to do anything. The original error message also included an 'OK' button. When I clicked this the e-mail attachment appeared. However, not being familiar with Spanish language, there were some characters that appeared odd, so that was when I turned to the Forum. Following your suggestion I carried-out the instructions in the referral you sent me and, after restarting my machine, opened the e-mail attachment. The opened document was exactly the same as the one I opened without the registry deletion. I do hope all of this makes sense.
