WordPerfect will probably have no trouble opening your files, but you should go throught the steps in Anshad Edavana's post. If you can't, is it because you do not have the XP CD? you said, "This Windows XP Pro wasn't actually a complete D/L," does this mean you downloaded an ISO for Windows XP? If so, from where? You also say you are missing other applications...is reinstalling WIndows an option? Can you get another valid copy of XP elsewhere? A friend, perhaps?
Yes I want to get my hands on a WXP install disc and will let you know when that happens, . . concerning what I said, . .
I used the DELL Windows XP Pro to install thinking I would get another 30 days out of it since I could not open the previous program, . . because it was expired, . . when I put in the disc I decided to click repair and it installed this program that I am using on this DELL Desk Top, . . Previously I was not able to get the numbers they wanted do to this antique was more or less a present and the disc came from a busted Lap Top, . .
BTW, . . I tried all the options from Anshads Post, but have not yet succeeded in locating a fresh on line down load , . most of those replace word pad with some other program, . .
Since I was not permitted to Up Load this type of file (Word Perfect), as an attachment, I assume my email recipients
won't be able to either.
