Can't open WPS files with Word Starter 2010

Do I need another version of Word? My other computer which has Microsoft Office Professional lets me save the WPS files as Word Documents, but my Compaq Presario  came with the Word Starter and it won't let me open the WPS files I had from an  E Computer with Windows Vista

Hi hoffmata,

 

I just did some quick research and it appears Microsoft has a fix for this. Here is a link to Microsoft support article on how to make this work:

I hope this helps. Let us know how it goes.

To open WPS files, please download and install Wordviewer from the following weblink:

I am not sure Word Starter will allow you to convert the WPS files. Refer the following link which might resolve this problem:
