I have a user who insists that moving on from Novell Word Perfect 6.1 circa 1994, is just not possible for him. Unfortunately his equipment must be updated. He currently runs XP Pro without the service pack2 or any updates in order to allow WP 6.1 to run. The newest equipment is due in soon and I really want to get him to SP2 with current updates. The software loads correctly but then fails to initialize. I've tried the old standby of deleting the bif and rebooting. I'm thinking my next step is to identify the files and check permissions? After that, driver conflicts?
Has anyone conquered this issue? I know 6.1 fans are devote in general. Does the above troubleshooting plan seem feasible?
Thank you in advance for giving this matter consideration.
