Q: office 2007 compatibility pack not working on office 2003 This thread is locked from future replies

Hi - I am using Office 2003 on XP OS. I downloaded the Office 2007 compatibility pack months ago and it worked great. Then it stopped converting at some point. Now, when I try to open a .docx, Word says the file was created in a newer version and asks if I'd like to download the compatibility pack. I've removed the pack, re-downloaded it and it still doesn't work. Each time Word prompts me, I try to download it again. It shows as a successful install. I have all my high priority updates, etc. I haven't had an opportunity to test PowerPoint, but Excel works and handles the file conversion just fine. Any idea what might be happening with Word?




Uninstall Office Compatibility pack from your Computer.

Delete Office 12 and Office 14 folders from the location mentioned below:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\

And then you may download the latest compatibility pack for Office 2003 using the link below:

Also download and install the Service pack 2 for the compatibility pack.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
