Help! My laptop totally crashed and my hard drive has been rescued. I have a new laptop but I don't have all the software I need and someone gave me a copy of open office.org so I can open my Microsoft Publisher files. I can't afford to buy the microsoft software, but I daren't load the version I had before because I've been told its illegal and that microsoft can track it on your pc! I have tried to open the publisher files with the open office draw program but it won't work. My business is based on designs i have created in these publisher files and most of my work over the last 18months I have created in Publisher. Does anyone know how to do it? I have spent the last 4 hours searching the net, including the open office and linux websites, but have found no information!
