Importing/Exporting Files in CW

When importing or exporting to a different format I get an error message of

The file “Micosoft Works 2.0 cannot be found”

Most of the time it then quits with an error “type 3”

I have reinstalled two different times with the same error.
I get a similar error when trying to import. It cannot find the file to import a PICT file for example. Seems as if it cannot find the translators, which are present in the Claris folder, in the System folder. I can't figure out why it doesn't find them.

Any thoughts?

TIA :-)

Make sure the translators are in the claris folder in the Claris Translators folder. Also, you should rebuild your desktop so maceasy open can use them.
Restart and hold down apple-option.
