Re: Open XLR Files in Windows 7



XLR files were created by Microsoft Works and are not compatible with the newer versions of windows or office as  Microsoft has stopped Microsoft Works.


There are two options you can try and see if it helps:


- Download Excel Viewer and then right click on the file to select Open With. From Open with Browse


  to the Excel viewer  program and click Open.


- If the above doesnt help then you can download Open Office



You can also refer to this link information about Converters if none of the above programs work. Click Here
