Microsoft Office Word previewer

I have found that when I run Word 2007 and go to the open a file icon, I get the open file window that shows my Word documents. There is the preview pane and when I click on a file for preview, I get the error message: "This file can't be previewed because of an error in the Microsoft Office Word previewer".

How can I fix this? Thank-you,

Philip

right click the word icon, go to properties, find a compatability tab. select windows xp ( service pack3 )

Re: Microsoft Office Word previewer

Thank-you for your prompt response.

 

  1. I am not prepared to go from Windows 7 back to XP.
  2. The other reference you gave me shows that Microsoft has been aware of the problem for over 1 year and has not yet developed a fix, as they had promised.

 

I guess i'll have to do without the feature.
