WFW 3.11 & MS Works 2.0
Posted on 1997-09-26
Hey! I know this is the wrong forum, but this is where the guys with the right answers hang out! I have a friend with WFW 3.11 using Works for Windows 2.0. He has been using Works for some time, no problems and has made a number of WPS (word processing) files. One day last week, Works stopped displaying? all his wps files. I looked at them, they are all there, and seem intact, including all that gobbledygook header information at the beginning. Notepad reads them in and displays them (with header information) and so does write. Works shows them to be there but when ever you open one in Works, it shows as having no content, that is as being an empty document. I figure works has forgotten how to read the formatting, but a reinstall of Works made no change in this behaviour, and an examination of all the ini file settings shows nothing outrageous.
So, I hope that heres an easy 200 points, multiplied by the "A" grade I give to the solution. Thanks!!
