    Trying to open Works Data base file.


    I have just had Windows 10 pro installed. One of the casualties is the fact I cannot open the Microsoft Works Data base files I have had since the very early days (1990's) which has worked fine up to now. I understand Windows 10 doesn't recognise the programme. I have tried a downloaded convertor to Excel I found on Google but Java Security has warned it could do damage to use. (?) Can anyone help me please?

    Additionally, I think LibreOffice (free) is able to open them.
