Word Perfect 11

by rjo72223 / August 15, 2007 8:18 AM PDT

Cannot open my documents in Corel WP 11. Keeps asking me for a wpnwin11.dll which I have downloaded but do not know where to install to get up and running again. Any help? Thanks!

rjo..

Are you sure it's the "wpnwin11.dll"? I believe the .dll you might be referring to is "wpwin11.dll", without the "n" between the "p" and "w". I would check the spelling again to make sure it's correct. If it's the one above, it belongs in the following location and folder:

C:\Program Files\Word Perfect 11\Program

Best of luck..

Thanks for your reply... it appears that the wpwn11.dll is in the program files. It also appears that I have a Word Perfect 11 and a Word Perfect 11 (2) in my Program files and the WP11 still does not load and says preparing to install and then defaults to a "patch" and closes. Stil need help?

rjo..

You're welcome. I wish I could be of further help, but I don't know if can. Ordinarily, I might suggest a reinstall, if you have the origianl CD. There's alot involved, and I don't even know if it's warranted in your case. I would suggest posting at Word Perfect's forum before attempting anything further, unless someone else here has an answer for you. There's a great deal of information there, even you decide not to post. There may be WP user's, with the exact same issue as you, and I suspect there are. If you do decide to post, make sure you give them more information then you've provided here. This would include information about your operating system, and all/any error messages you might be receiving. Also more detailed information about the "patch" you're referring to. "WP11 (2)" might be a service pack. It's difficult to tell with little information you've provided. If you're able to open it all, go to Help>About and give them whichever version you see. I think they'd be better equipped to help.

Corel's Knowledge Base might also help.

Thanks for the links... I was able to install my old Microsoft Word 2002 and convert my WP11 files to Word so I am not "so diabled" right now...

...my WP 11 docs convert to Word 2002 but are "jumbled" and have to be corrected separately. If you know anything further, please advise asap because it will take alot more work than installing a .dll... thanks
