  • Anonymous Jan 17, 2008

    Dear friend,

    I have three users in our single computer. However, I can't open my MS Office Word 2007 from one of the users and instead a prompt appears "that it has not been installed and run the set up to install application" which I did but same prompt appears.

    I would appreciate if there is anyone who can advice me on this ?

How do I open a docx file without it corrupting.


Docx file is the default file format for MS word 2007 and 2010. If you have those application then you can open it easily. If you have the 2003 and below version, you will need to download the Office 2007 compatibility pack and install it to your PC then you can open the docx file

How can i view the docx file?


Hello there, if you go to the Microsoft page and search for "Word viewer" it allows you to open any format Microsoft word document and view or print the file, but does not allow any changes to be made, hope that helps :)

What is the meaning of X in the word DOCX?


The X stands for XML (Extensible Markup Language), which is the programming language behind the scenes in Office 2007 programs.
Previous versions of Word were based on binary data. Binary data is, by nature, prone to corruption, and "bloated."
By changing the background code, Microsoft was able to create new tools and features in Word 2007 that would not have been possible otherwise.

Cannot open a file from docx documents


Hello there!

Well that problem can be caused only if you are using older version of microsoft office 2007. If you have MS2003 package, and trying to open docx file extensions that will not work, but you are able to use docx extensions with MSoffice2007 package. In your question you put that you already use MS office 2007 package,so i suggest your docx extension is somehow corrupted.

If you had downloaded it from the internet please redownload it again.

If that was your work try to save it in doc format 1st then in docx if you want to enable only msoffice2007 users to use it. Good luck ! =)

Please rate my solutions! =)

Sincerely
Aleksandar Adzic

I got MS office 2007 uninstalled and MS office 2003 installed now word documents doxc ,Wps files do not open .How to recover them?


To open Microsoft Office Word 2007 .docx or .docm files with Microsoft Office Word 2003, you need to install the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for 2007 Office Word, Excel and PowerPoint File Formats and any necessary Office updates. By using the Compatibility Pack for the 2007 Office system, you can open, edit some items, and save Office Word 2007 documents in previous versions of Word.

In which we can open .docx files


You can open docx extension files only with MS Office 2007. If you wish to open it in earlier versions you have to save it again in compatible mode. Click on File (top left most corner with the logo), Save As, Word 97-2003 Document. Just using Save option will save your document as "docx" and not "doc" document.
