Have you applied the latest Service Pack for WordPerfect? Tried running in
Compatibility mode? Have you checked Corels website to find out about
compatibility with Windows Vista? WordPerfect 13 required a Service Pack
update to enable compatibility with Vista.

Hi Alan,

Check the information for v10 available here:
http://www.wpuniverse.com/vb/showthread.php?postid=32619#post32619

General information is found at the page top and between
the entries for v10 and v11.

Apply any and all relevant patches.

v10 is not supported under Vista.
Some people have it running OK.

There have been some discussions at

You need to register, but it's free.
Then you can search for: vista

Or perhaps even better and also free, try IBM-Lotus Symphony!

It is multi platform. The latest and greatest.

Hi,

I have WordPefect 10 installed from WordPerfect Office 2002 on my Vista 64
SP2 machine. It seems to be OK, but I have not used it much. I just have
it installed in case I need to open an old file.

I have one tip that often helps older programs run in Vista. Just one time,
right click the program icon and choose "Run as Administrator..." This
allows the program to set up registry keys, etc., that it can't otherwise,
and that often lets the program run successfully from then on. I can't
guarantee it will work for you in this case, but it's worth a try.

And thanks to Terry R. for the link that leads to the WordPerfect SP
downloads.
