You will receive the following error message when trying to print a Works for Windows document directly from File Manager, or when dragging the file from File Manager and dropping it onto Print Manager:

File Manager cannot open or print the specified file. Start the application used to create this file, and open or print it from there.

As a result, all of your Works for Windows documents must be printed directly from the application.

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Works for Windows version 2.0 and 2.0a. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
