Windows XP Pro Corporate with SP3 - wordpad problem

When I try to open wordpad by any means I get a dialogue box saying:
“Failed to create empty document”
This is a new install of this O/S and the target file is present. Any ideas please, - Thanks.

    I managed to fix this with a prog called "XPLite" free trial, it let me uninstall wordpad (and most other windows packaged sortware) then reinstall it - problem solved!

Just delete the wordpad.exe in "C:\Program Files\Windows NT\Accessories" and then rename the wordpad.backup to wordpad.exe

Hope this help!!

PS. would be a good job to copy wordpad.backup, just in case something goes wrong tomorrow or another day ;-)

Delete the Wordpad shortcut you are using, even if it is in the Start menu. Then we will create a new one that should work.
OK - Ready to create the new one? Good.

- Open My Computer or Windows Explorer (make it a size that leaves some desktop showing)

- Navigate to:
"C:\Program Files\Windows NT\Accessories"

- Find "wordpad.exe"

- RIGHT CLICK on that file and HOLD the button down on.

- While holding the RIGHT mouse button down, DRAG the file to the desktop - then release it.

- In the little menu that shows up, select "Create Shortcuts Here"

The new shortcut should start Wordpad OK.

SP3 is the third and final service pack released for Microsoft Windows XP, and it eliminates many of the security holes that previously affected XP. While Microsoft recommends that users download SP3 using Windows Update, some users are unable to do so. However, it's easy to create a Windows XP SP3 installation CD; it requires only that you download the pack from the website and burn it to a CD-R/DVD-R using an ISO burner program.
Download the SP3 installation ISO by visiting the first link listed in the "Resources" section of this article. Save it to your Desktop. Download ImgBurn and save it to your Desktop. Double-click the installation executable for ImgBurn and click "Next." Follow the remaining onscreen prompts and click "Finish" to complete installation of ImgBurn.

Xp pro sp3 setup problem for optional windows components


It looks like you have a copy of Zone Alarm on your PC and Windows XP Pro SP3 is not liking it. One thing that you can try is to disable Zone Alarm by right clicking on the icon that it creates on the lower right hand corner of the screen and see if you can find a "disable" or "shutdown" option. After doing so, then try to install again. Another thing that you can try is to completely remove Zone Alarm, try to install SP3 again, and if it installs, re-install Zone Alarm. However, I think the easiest path is to disable Zone Alarm temporarily. Let me know if this helps you or not.
