Need to open/convert WORKS files (WPS) on Office 2016 running on Windows 10

Im trying to find a way to open som old works files, but Word in Office 2016 say I need a later version of the converting software (I have not installed any), then Word ask if I want to download the new version, if I accept and click on YES, I only get to a Microsoft webpage that are blank (https://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=BF41401E-70FA-465D-AE2E-CF44DBF05297&displaylang=en)

Anyone got a solution for this?

It seems the Microsoft links for the converter do no work
From the Microsoft forums though,  saw several people are having the same issue and this was the best answer:

Assuming the .wps files are Works files, you should be able to open them automatically since Word comes with converters for most versions of Works. If they were created in a version of Works before Works 6, you can find older converters at http://www.gmayor.com/downloads.htm.

If that does not work, you could try here

or online conversion http://www.zamzar.com/convert/wps-to-doc/
