    Compatability with WordPerfect


    I can't get my WordPerfect program to work properly with Windows 10. I don't know how to fix that.

    I'm not having any problems with WordPerfect X6 on Win10 Pro and X7 on Win10 Home.

    I have WordPerfect X7, Home and Student Edition. I can't publish any document to PDF without shutting down the whole program abruptly. Thanks for any help you can provide.

    That's weird. I am running an older version (X3 I think) without issues under w10 x64. But with Corel you can never be sure.

    Instead of publishing using WorkPerfect, why don't you try printing to a PDF file? You might have to turn on the Microsoft Print to PDF Windows feature from Control Panel >> Turn Windows features on or off. This feature adds an option under the select printer list that when selecting a PDF file is created rather than actual printing to a printer.

    Thank you. That is helpful!

    I have WPX3 and have just been given a laptop with Windows 10 on it. I downloaded my WP, but it won't work right. I can pull up old files that I transferred over to this computer, but I can't save them. I had been using Windows XP (my internet died on my XP). Is there any hope of being able to use my old WP on Windows 10?

    Wordperfect X3 was released in 2006, predating Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10.
    I seriously doubt it will run properly under Win10, even in Compatibility Mode.
    I suppose that it might run under an XP VM.

    If you do not wish to upgrade to WordPerfect X8 (the current version) or to try a supported version of MS Office, perhaps you might consider one of several open-source alternatives, such as Libre Office?
