I have a Dell 8100 using Win ME, P4 1.3G. For some reason, I decided to upgrade the ME to XP. After several unsuccessful trials to get the XP to load, I was finally able to get back to ME with XP supposedly uninstalled. Unfortunately, since that time I have been unable to use my Microsoft Works V 6. Nothing happens when I click the desktop icon, and when I reboot or try to load from a file, I get the error message " Works file WKWAT.DLL APPEARS TO BE CORRUPTED. REINSTALL THE FILE AND TRY AGAIN". I tried to uninstall the program using the control panel option: Install-Uninstall. The setup loads and begins to uninstall - then stops with the error message "The I/O operation has been aborted because of either a thread exit or an application request". I have a CD for Works V 6 and I tried to install/uninstall using the CD and got the same result. I have a big database (more than 8,000 records) that I use weekly and I need to get Works going again - help!
