On Server 2008 R2
I updated Offfice 2003 with compatibility pack
when I try to open up a newer file .docx I get an error:
"there was an error opening the file"
In Event Viewer I see event 1000:
Faulting application name: Wordconv.exe, version: 12.0.6500.5000, time stamp: 0x49a6d394
Faulting module name: unknown, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x00000000
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x00000000
Faulting process id: 0xbcc
Faulting application start time: 0x01cd94f5c91017f9
Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office12\Wordconv.exe
Faulting module path: unknown
Report Id: 0782354d-00e9-11e2-9dd3-d4ae52a6a4c6

Any suggestions on how to fix this besides upgrading?
