Vista Home Premium doesn't like Word 2002

  Spiny 23:02 03 Jul 2008

I have installed Works Suite 2006 on my Vista Home Premium computer. Everything works fine apart from Word 2002. I am unable to open Word by clicking on document files. If I double click on a document file in Explorer nothing happens. If I right click and select Open With, and then click on wordicon, nothing happens. I am also unable to launch Word from the Works Suite program launcher. I can open Word, no problem, and it appears to work fine, but to edit a document I have to search for it from within Word, which is often inconvient. I have un-installed the suite, and re-installed it, but the problem still persists. Does anyone know if there is a fix for this issue?

Have a look at this click here

If I understand it correctly, Works Suite 2006 is otherwise known as MS Works 8.5.

It seems that only MS Works 9.0 is fully compatible with Vista.

Many thanks for that. Guess an upgrade is called for.
