Is WordPerfect X3 compatable with Windows 7

We just bought a new computer with Windows 7 installed. We have many, many files in WordPerfect Office X3 and do not seem to be able to install it. Corel is absolutely no help. I know this should be no problem. Can you help?

  1. I did some digging around. I did not know WP was still around!! Personnaly I was a WordStar fan. It appears there may be a way to open the files in Office by using the open with; format "."

    Also appears that Open Office will open your files. Its a free download. I would try Open Office, convert your WP files from there.
  2. Yes, it is compatible with Windows 7.

    What is the specific issue you are having with installation?
  3. Go here for the answer:

    Enter the product "word perfect" and you'll see what is compatible and what isn't.

    I have tried to install WordPerfect Office Editor 3 as I have used it for years but I can not get it to work in my Windows 7 vm (parallels). It states that it is not a 32 or 64 bit version. It worked in XP but not in Windows 7. I found one site at:
    http://www.columbia.edu/~em36/wpdos/wpdosbox64.html
    that addressed using WP with Windows 64 bit but the site is old and the files were from a dropbox that does not appear to still exist.

    My issue is that even with DOSBOX installed it hangs my computer which I am using Wndows 7 (64 bit) and would love to be able to use it again as it does a lot of things that I can not do with other editors like search for or insert new hard returns as part of the search and replace function.
  5. May not work with 64 bit, try with 32.
