I have a customer that has documents made from Microsoft Works 4.5. She now upgraded to Works 9. I installed as many converters I could find but still nothing. How can I open these documents??

In order to open these documents, your customer would have to be at least running version 6.0 before the converter would even work. More information can be found here:

ended up getting my hands on a copy of works 8. They opened fine in 8 Then saved them all in works 8 extension which all opened up in works 9 successfully!
