This is more helpful to those users who still do not use the upgraded Microsoft Works.

Now days, lots of users selected to utilize Microsoft Office including all the features along with Word, Access and Excel. Most of us are not using Microsoft Works. When you use the Microsoft Works for very short time and then uninstall it, the files created using Microsoft Works cannot be opened.
