    You could try OpenOffice or Word Viewer.

    I question the sanity of trying to open a file that is of not common use. Even if we did not know what wps was, why would you try and open the file sent to you via email from someone I assume you know without asking them first what program you need to open the file.

    Reasons... spyware/malware/viruses, to find out if they did send it or if their system is infected with a virus that is spreading via email, to easily find out what they used and to notify them that this filetype is not of common practice and they should try and save it in document form.

    WPS files are created by MS Works, not WPS office.

    Depending on your version of word (if you have it installed) this converter may do the trick.

    That was good advice jhoegl, but if you didn't know how to open the file, why post?
