For starters, that really doesn't have the slightest thing to do with DOSBox.Kiwi Dazza wrote:The next problem is that when I try to open the DOC files with MS Word, I get the following message:
â€œYou are attempting to open a file that was created in an earlier version of Microsoft Office. This file type is blocked from opening in this version by your registry policy settingâ€ (OK).
Read my last post again. You can put the files in any folder you want, but you have to mount that folder as its own drive letter in DOSBox.With Dosbox, do I need to keep the original WPT files in the same folder (directory) as the Brother conversion software, or can I put it in a sub-directory? I did try this at first, but I didnâ€™t have any success until I put them all in the same folder. Am I missing something? (It is no real problem if I cant, I will just cut and paste the converted files to a different location).
