Error message using Office Compatability Pack for Office 2007

  Flopper 13:27 14 May 2014

This is probably not the correct forum but I am running Office 2003 on a Windows 8 laptop. If I open an Excel file created in Windows 7 with an xlsx extension the converter opens the file but also shows a dialogue box with the error 'There was a problem sending the command to the program'. I am going dizzy with the various options on many forums and most don't seem to work. Any suggestions, apart from upgrade to Office 2007 or later.

I think the issue is that Office 2003 is not really compatible with Windows 8click here
