Works: Opening Works 1.x Files in Works 2.0

PSS ID Number: Q39400 Article last modified on 06-10-1996



The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Works for the Macintosh, version 2.0


In the Finder, you cannot double-click to open a file created in a previous version of Microsoft Works unless the file has first been saved using Works version 2.0.


To resave these files, do the following:

  1. Remove earlier versions of Microsoft Works from the disk.
  2. Turn off the computer.
  3. Restart the computer while holding down the COMMAND and OPTION keys.
  4. When asked if you want to rebuild the desktop, click OK.
  5. Start Works version 2.0, then open and save the old documents. (If the Works icon disappears from a file in the Finder, start Works version 2.0 again, and open and resave the file.)

This information is taken directly from the Works version 2.0 “README” file.
