The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for the Macintosh, versions 5.0 and 5.1


Double-clicking a Word Settings file generates the following error message:

The document “Word Settings (5)” could not be opened, because the application “Microsoft Word” could not be found. Could not find a translation extension with appropriate translators.


Apple’s “Macintosh Easy Open Setup” version 1.0 CP is installed on the Macintosh. This utility is unaware that Word can open a Settings file.


To successfully start Word from a Settings file, turn Easy Open off:

  1. From the Apple menu, choose Control Panels.
  2. Open the Macintosh Easy Open Setup control panel. Select the OFF button (no need to restart the Macintosh) and close the control panel.

You can now start Word by double-clicking a Settings file.
