If Works was correctly installed on an Windows XP computer, you should be able to click on Start-All Programs-Microsoft Works, then select the specific subprogram within the Works suite. That said, if you use Windows Explorer to navigate to the C\Program Files\Microsoft Works folder. If you click once directly on the "Microsoft Works" folder on the left side of the window, you should be able to see a number of files on the right side of the window, including the "1033" folder you have mentioned. That is, if it's installed correctly. Looking at the files listed there, you should see one named: "msworks.exe". Double clicking on it will bring up the Works word processing program. The "wksss.exe" file is the Works Spreadsheet utility, etc.
Then again, if Office was installed instead of Works, then you may not have all the files I've mentioned.
Hope this helps.
Got a new Dell as a gift (Win XP). Mom tells me she requested WORKS be on it. For two weeks I did not know this because I only see Microsoft Office with Excel, Word, etc. So I go to explore and there is a Program File WORKS folder with a 1033 folder. Everything in these is .DLL.
How can I get WORKS to open for use?
