Had no idea here to put this, sorry. I just got a new computer, upgrading from Vista to Windows 8. However, after moving many of my old files created with Microsoft Works 9 over to my new setup I find I can't open any of them. I just get a message saying something like "The file could not be opened, it may be open in another program, may not something, something about converters, or the file might be corrupt." the it just opens a blank works page. That's what happens when I try Microsoft works. If I try word pad it opens it but it's just a jumbled mess.
