I have uninstalled Works Suite 2003 as I was having trouble with my word print out which just threw a blank page out everytime.  I went onto the spread sheet and the same thing happened with regard to the printer.  A friend advised me to uninstall works suite 2003 - which I did. I also turned off pc and then turned it on to re-install it. Turned the pc of when it had finished installing programmes and then re-started it.The problem had NOT disappeared and I am now wondering if anyone can help me because this is the first time this has happened. 

Answer:Works Suite 2003 for XP

Does this just happen in works? Or can you print in wordpad or notepad?

Question: Works suite 2003

I normally have works suite 2003 installed in my computer. Well I had to uninstall it for other reasons and when it was OK to reinstall Everything worked except for Windows Word. I keep getting a message "The patch package could not be opened. Verify that the patch package exist and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer patch package." Now I know it a valid installer package because I have installed it, twice. I don't understand why everything else installed fine but not Word.
Also how do you remove Ad-aware 6.0? I can't seem to remove it at all. It says "could not open INSTALL.LOG file.
 

Answer:Works suite 2003

Regarding the Word error, it looks like the Windows Installer file may be corrupt.

A solution may be found here, in the nature of a clean-up program from MS.

Question: Works Suite 2003

Any Word files that I create do not appear on the Woprks Task Launcher. Why is this?I am also unable to use Calendar. It complains that I do not have a Microsoft file Msdart.dll.Where can I get this file?

Answer:Works Suite 2003

Word is a separate program to Works... Anything loaded with Word will only appear on it's own list of recently opened files where'as Works will only be able to list/open it's own...As for the Calendar, check to see if everything is installed ok, if not the missing file should be on your Works install CD inside one of the .cab files...

I can not install/reinstall or uninstall works suite 2003 or Word 2002. The Windows Installer is not working with it.

I have completed my database. I put one column in alphabetical order, and proceed to another, the column I just alphabetized goes back the way it was. They won't all stay alphabetical. What's the deal? Help?
 

Answer:works suite 2003 database

This happens in Excel too, putting a column in alphabetical order is assumed to mean that you want all the rows to still contain the original values.

In Excel, you can highlight the data in the column and this sorts only that column - Then move on to the next column, etc.

If that doesn't work in Works, you may want to
sort the first column,
cut and paste the remaining columns into separate worksheets (one column, one worksheet) and
then sort them,
then copy them all back...

Reinstalling software on a new partitioned hard drive. Is there any way to install MS Works to a drive other than C: ? The automatic installer didn't even offer me a choice of where to install, just dumped it on the C: drive.
 

Answer:Installing MS Works Suite 2003

Is Works on a separate MS CD, or part of the PC "Recovery Disks"?

If its a separate CD it should not use an "Automated Installer" but if its part of the bundled software, then you probably have no choice.

Works 6.0 and Works Suite 2006 problem

I now have MS Works 6.0 and am thinking about buying and installing Works Suite 2006. The reason is that I have a few databases on Works 6.0 with a number column and an item column. I used to print off the database and get a printout with the columns side by side. Now, for some reason, when I print out I get the items printed first, with no numbers column, and then the numbers column prints out with no item column. I have no idea how to fix that. If anyone happens to know how to fix that, I will just keep Works 6 and spend the money on wine, women and song. Otherwise, I will get Works Suite 2006 and hope that it doesn't have that problem, and also that I what I now have in Works 6.0 will show up in Works Suite 2006 when I install it.

I also presume that I do not want to uninstall Works 6.0 before installing Works Suite so that I won't lose what is on Works 6.0. Is that right?

Thank you, grandpaw

Answer:Ms Works 6.0 And Works Suite 2006

It appears that your problem may be caused by a change in your printer settings,especially if the spreadsheets appear normally when you view them. Have you tried to redo these? Upgrading Works (assuming the old spreadsheets will be compatible) seems an expensive way to fix a simple problem, and an upgrade may not fix it if the printing settings remain the same.
Regards,
John

Question: Works to Suite

Hello, I just recently installed microsoft works suite on my computer, I previously had regular works and uninstalled it first. Anyway now I can't open word , I get a message saying "Works cannot access one or more required files The files maybe renamed, deleted or moved. Try reinstalling Works and starting the program again." Also when I try to open "Works" I get a message saying " Wksss.exe- Entry point not found. the procedure entry point [email protected]@[email protected] could not be located in the dynamic library WkWbl.dll. What is wrong? I have already tried to reinstall it once but nothing has changed. Does this mean that I have also lost my Regular Microsoft Works now as well?
 

Answer:Works to Suite

I don't know much about those programs, but if you recently got the program, isn't supported by Microsoft? Should be. If you contact them and find a solution, please post it here, so others will know how to deal with it. Sorry I can't be of more help.

Question: Works Suite

I am a novice so bare with me. I have a new Gateway computer...using XP operating system. I had Works Suite installed on my computer. Yesterday while using Word I noticed that when I inserted some pictures that I couldn't view them in the document. I didn't know what was wrong so I decided to uninstall word and try to reinstall it to see if that would take care of the problem. Well, it wouldn't install again. I ended up calling Gateway and spending over 2 1/2 hours on the phone with three different tech support people and after trying several things with them...they finally told me that something was wrong with the Works Suite disk (that I got in Jan from them) and that it was not under warranty. So basically tough luck. Well, I was going to buy another software package today but I brought the disk to work with me and tried to upload it on my work computer and it worked!!! Now, I don't know what to do. Gateway did have me try other disks and they would upload. Any ideas on what I could be doing wrong?

Thanks!
 

Answer:Works Suite

While you say "it wouldn't install again", you have not said exactly what happens when you try.

Question: Works Suite

If I have regular Works on my computer and want to change to Works Suite 2003 what do I have to do first. Uninstall Works or what? I am running Window xp home.
 

Answer:Works Suite

Last time I did a Works install it did find an old version already partially installed (long story...customer tried getting help from four or five friends before calling me, etc.) and required it be uninstalled first. So just start the install of the newer version and if it needs the older version uninstalled first, it'll tell you.

If you've saved all the documents, pictures, etc., that you created in the old Works program in the My Documents folder, they won't be disturbed. However, some of the older Works suites save by default to a subfolder of the Works folder, so make sure your documents are in a safe place (copy them to My Documents, for example) before uninstalling.

I recommend you copy rather than move them because if something goes wrong (power outage, for example) during a move process, you can lose the files being moved. If something goes wrong during a copy process, you just start over.

Good morning, I hope that someone can assist me in my endeavour. Some years ago, maybe 6 to be exact, I had Microsoft Works 6 Suite and I think the operating system was Windows 95 or was it 98, those in the know will know! I am a genealogy buff and saved all my family history to CD using Works 6. These CD's have not been used since.

I now have Vista and Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007. I recently found the CD's and put them into the drive to check out my "old" information and the error message I get is: CD appears to be corrupted. I cannot understand this - why did it happen?

So I thought I would try to convert them to my current program BUT they will still not open for me to do this. I even downloaded a Works 6-9 conversion program 4.5MB but cannot open still.

Can anyone tell me if all my history is useless to me now. It was many years researching.

Works Suite 6.0 Spreadsheet
If I want to enter an address in a cell, I would enter 123 Main St.
However when I enter 123 and press the spacebar, apparently nothing happens to indicate a space. If I then enter the word Main, the space will then show in that cell. Why does the space not appear at first.
Thank you

Answer:Spacebar Works Suite 6.0

Because 123 is a numeric value and you are using a spreadsheet, designed to perform calculations.

As soon as you enter a non numeric value (M), the spreadsheet determines that you are not wanting a number al all, and reverts to text formatting for the cell?

Hello again,

Now, here's my little dilemma; I am trying to install a new version of Microsoft Works Suite 2005 on a laptop computer.With the installation disc in situ, ready for installing, a message appears on the screen stating that for the installation to continue, all open programs should be closed and a list of these programs is shown. When I say list it simply advises that - iexplorer.exe - needs to close and that windows will close it for me by clicking on the relevant button. However nothing happens and so I have to attempt to close it manually.

On entering the task manger and opening processes, highlighting the -iexplorer.exe - and giving the command end task, it removes it's self from the list, but immediately then replicates itself in a randomly selected place within the working process list. Question , how do I close this process to enable installation of the software?

Hi AllHope a Works Suite question is acceptable here. I have Works Suite 2002 installed, and just recently I needed to create some business cards for my own use. I cannot find any way to do this task in Works Suite. Is this actually possible? Surely this would be a fairly basic and everyday task many users would need to do?There is a wizard or template for practically every other task you could imagine but not for this, as far as I can see. I searched the Microsoft site for help and there was some article about creating business cards in Word but I think it was just filling in the informationin labels. i doubt if you could include clipart or fancy lettering.

But generally I prefer the Office Suite.
The problem I get, sometimes, deals with having to point to my installation CD when I need to startup the "other" Word when I had last been using the alternate.

A small issue, so I live with it for now. But when I tire of it, I will just remove Works.

I bought the 6 cd MS Works Suite on E-bay. All the programs loaded except MS Word 2000 SR1. It says "the 25-didgit cd key is needed to use Word in Works Suite 2001" but it never asked me what the key was. I tried to delete it & re-install it with no success. Anyone with any advice would be appreciated. Thanks, Bob

My grandson needs Powerpoint for school work....Can I buy it to add on to my Works or buy it separate ...will it work with what I have?
I tried to find something on it on MS page but its confusing..... I have IE , Win XP...
Any help on what to do or sellers would be greatly appreciated...
 

Answer:get Powerpoint for Works Suite 2002 ?

Buying a stand-alone version of PowerPoint would probably be extremely uneconomic, when you can buy Microsoft Office "Student and Teachers" edition.

It contains Word, Excel, Outlook and PowerPoint. It can be installed on up to 3 computers "in the same household" but should not be used for commercial purposes.

Answer:Works Suite 2001 help needed!!

Works Suite 2001 has Word 2000 and an Excel 97 compatible spreadsheet. Word 2007 also reads the wps format used by the other word processor included in Works 6.0. Office 2007 hould have no problem reading those as long as you saved the files in the default formats (doc/wps and xlr/xls). The database program has an unusual format and there is no direct support in Access (which isn't included in H&S 2007 anyways).

I have a new PC which came with Works 7.0. Fine. Now, I also have on DVD, Works Suite 2002, which as you probably all know, includes Autoroute and quite a few other programmes. But I presume the word processor is not a updated as the one in Works & (Works Word Processor)? Or cam i wrong in this?In other words, should I uninstall Works and install Works Suite, or can the 2 be on the PC at the same time? (I suspect not). If I DO want Works Suite, can i NOT install its word processor but keep Works 7? Hmmm.ThanksKC

Answer:Works or Works Suite?

Yes you can have both at the same time. keep works on your PC then install only the programs you want to from works suite.You will have to install the installation files from CD 1 of works suite but then you can swap the other CD's about as you pick and choose the applications.Autoroute for example. You will need the install files from CD 1 [Install the whole of this CD except for any actual programs] then if I remember correctly the rest of Autoroute will come from CD 4 and halfway through you will need to insert CD 2 or 3 to pick up some files from there as well.It does work though as I had parts of works suite 2003 on my system at the same time as Office XP. I continued to use them until I had copied all my files over to Office XP and bought a separate copy of Autoroute 2004, then I removed Works suite completely. j.

Hi,
this program was already installed on my old computer when I bought it new. By the time I got rid of the computer, it wouldn't save anything to a disk. I had a word document that I wanted to save, so I mailed it to a friend. When I got the new computer set up, she sent it back to me. The new computer did not have 'Word' on it, so I installed microsoft word from the 'works suite' disk I had that came with my old computer. My problem is, I didn't have the case with the CD number on it. I have the works suite (that word is included on) product number, but to open word on the new computer, it says I need the CD number. Does anyone know any way around this? It is not a 'life or death' situation, but it is a book I have been working on. Fortunately, I had printed out most of it, but I would really like to have it on the computer to make changes, etc. Thanks so much for any help.

Couple things:
Open Office can read WORD files-- and is a free Office Suite--- download it, use it, give it away---- all legal, all Open Source. Suite includes a wor4d processor that will read and write .doc files (as well as many other formats), as well as including a spreadsheet, and presentation software.

Second option is AbiWord--- another free alterantive to WORD. This is not a full suite, but a great little word processor which can read and write .doc files (& a whole lot more)

good luck.

Answer:Installing Microsoft works suite 2006

How complex is your formatting? You could save it as a .rtf (rich text format) and that will be compatible with practically anything.

Also this is from Wikipedia:



A general C++ library, libwps,[15][16] can extract text from many different versions of Microsoft Works. OpenOffice.org variants such as Go-oo, LibreOffice, NeoOffice and OxygenOffice[17] have included libwps. libwps also provides a command line converter.Click to expand...

So if rtf isn't going to do it for you, installing one of those OpenOffice variants may work.

I have installed Works Suite three times and am told it has been successfully installed. I appear to have all the files, but the Task Launcher doesn't work, nor do most of the new features. I have a Desktop icon for Works Suite which brings up a Works screen, and when I select "About Microsoft" I get a small screen that says Microsoft Works 6.0 (which I had originally), but the window below it lists the Microsoft Works 2002. I also have a Desktop icon for Money 2002, but when click I get the message "This action is only valid for products that are currently installed".

If I go to Windows Explorer I can click on Microsoft Office Tools, then Activation, and I get the same message as above.

I don't know what to do at this point. Do I need to delete all the MS Works files and reinstall Works Suite 2002? What I have seems to be a mixture of the old and the new. I have looked for a Remove feature on the 2002 CD and there isn't any...or I haven't found it, so I can't directly uninstall from the CD's.
