    I have several password protected documents from an old crapped out computer that are done in a very old version of WordPerfect and I cannot open them up in my current computer's "Microsoft Works Word Processor". The ones that are not password protected open up fine, but the ones that have password protection bring up the following Windows message: "Works cannot open (said document). The file may be in use by another application, the file may not be supported by any of the installed converters, or the file may be corrupt". I have tried all other "converters" that are a part of my Microsoft Works Word Processor. If my old computer still worked, I could simply remove the password and I would have no problem, but as you can see, this is not the case. Any help would be appreciated.

    I just realized that the email address on file when I posted my question was obsolete, so I have just updated my profile with my new address. Sorry.

    The standard rules of the forum is to not provide any assistance in password removal, as it's just impossible to tell good intentions from other ones.

    So I would suggest emailing the files to somone with a working version of WP, with the password.

    There will be no other way around it, encryption is quite high.
