Compatibility Pack for MS Office, doc to docx, ppt to pptx, xls to xlsx


This tip is all about the compatibility issues between the Office 2000, Office XP, or Office 2003 with Office 2007. Because all programs in Office 2000, Office XP, or Office 2003 used the old file extensions for its different programs. For example Word 2000 saved files with extension .doc, Excel 2000 with .xls and PowerPoint 2000 with .ppt. but on the other Office 2007 used the new file extensions for its different programs. For example Word 2007 saved files with extension .docx, Excel 2007 with .xlsx and PowerPoint 2007 with .pptx. Now the problem is that when you will try to open Office 2007 files into Office 2000, Office XP, or Office 2003 you will not open the file due to compatibility issues between both office versions (before 2007 and after 2007). Microsoft provides a free compatibility pack to convert Office 2007 documents to the Office 2000, Office XP, or Office 2003 format. There are many third party free converter are available but here we are using Microsoft office compatibility pack.

Please follow the given link to download free Microsoft compatibility pack -

Just install the compatibility pack after downloading........

01 - I Am A Pilgrim - Alabama.mp3 <- WHY mp3 on there?


Computer keeps all its files with an extension. This is basically for the computer to know what associated program it should use to read that file. Here, the mp3 extension means it is a music (song) file, and it should open a medial player to read that file. For example, documents have a .doc or .odt extension. There are several more. When computer sense that extension it will open MS word or open office.

When i tried to open the file it says ''this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Creat an association in the Set Associations control panel''.


Each Windows Operating System, 98, NT, 2000, XP, Vista and Windows 7 associate files with programs. This means that the file will open with that program each time it is clicked on.
The error indicates that the file type does not have a program associated with it.
1. You do not have the program it is looking for loaded on the system
2. The program is installed but the association is broken

Google can help you with locating the program you need to open the file type you are looking for.
1. Make sure your system is showing you the extension for the file. This is the three letters following the period at the end of the file name. Example MyLetter.doc: doc is the extension.
2. Go to Google and type in a search for that extension. Example:type File extension flv, in a Google search. Notice, no period is used in the search.
3. Look in the results summary for the words Open an flv file (in your case you would substitute your extension)
4. Download and install the program associated with the file.

You will need to know what program the file was created in. For example...If I were to send you a file with doc at the end of it you would need Microsoft word installed on YOUR computer to be able to open the file. Get in touch with the person that is sending you the file and ask them what program they created it in. Then you will know what program you need to install on your computer.

Hope this helps.

Word docs


documents open, by default, according to settings on your PC/laptop, as they do not 'know' what created them.

for example, all documernts created by microsoft works word processor would normall have file names ending .wps or .wpt.

In Control Panel > Folder Options (under the File Types tab) there is a list of every File Type and what application will be used to open this type of file.

On my XP system, for example, I see types WPS and WPT are both associated with ."microsoft works word processor ", so it would be used to open such files.

It is possble this information is corrupt on yours, but unlikely. I do not suggest you try to 'fix' this as you may make this worse. Try to get a friend or\ local shop to look.

Alternatively, you may be (accidentally) giving your files the EXTENSION (the .xxx part of the name). If so, that would make your PC believe they were some other type and try to open them with the wrong application.

Sorry if the above doesn't help. It may at least point you or a friend further down tyhe path.

By the way, this is not a Router related issue, as posting heading suggests, but never mind.

Need to set an association to open a file


The first thing that you have to find out is what type of file is it. Normally if the file is not associated with any program on the computer then that means that the program is not installed. To find out the type of program that it is you can go to the link below then check the file extention. The file extention by the way is the letters after the period in the filename. EX. hello.DOC the capital letters is the file extention

Java programming


To open a '.doc' file, you need to have installed either:
* Microsoft Word Viewer
* Microsoft Word
* Microsoft Office
installed on the client's computer.
Since this is not always the situation, you should look at converting the DOC file into a "compiled-help" file, since every Windows computer has access to the "help" subsystem.
