I can't open any of my microsoft works documents with word 2013 on windows 8

I can't open any of my Microsoft works documents with word 2013  on windows 8 ,word 2013  keeps telling me I need a works converter file which I have  downloaded and installed but it still won't open my wps files.  Just keep repeating that I need the converter.




Thanks for the reply.  My works files are from my windows 7 laptop.  I had already downloaded the converter from here:  which is supposed to be the Microsoft Works 6–9 File Converter.  At first it did not install, but after a reboot I tried it again and it finally installed correctly.


Thank you for your help Suzanne.
