    Hi

    For some reason I can no longer open Microsoft Works Word Processor or any of the files I created using this programme. When I try to do so I get the following error message "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item".

    I uninstalled the programme and then re-installed it subsequently but still have the same problem. All other programmes in the suite such as Microsoft Calender, Database, Spreadsheet etc. are all opening OK.

    If anyone can throw some light on this issue I would be most grateful.

    Brian Mulligan.

    do you see a file called

    WksWP.exe

    if so double click on it and see if it runs

    then we can work out the shortcut for programs
