    Wordperfect 11 files cannot be saved in windows 7

    I am using a dell desktop with windows 7 preinstall. I installed the wordperfect 11 software but to my surprise i cannot save any of the created wordperfect11 files . Whenever i try to save a file a new window appears which asks me where i want to save the file and also asks me the name of the file and the type but does not allows me to enter the type. This is i feel totally different from the old method of saving the word perfect file. please help me regarding this matter.

    If you want the wordperfect 11 to work with windows 7 you need to change compatibility settings by yourself or run the program in the compatibility mode of windows XP. For doing thi syou will have to select start under that select programs and then right click on the worderfect icon select properties and then click the compatibility tab and then check "Run this program in compatibility mode Windows XP ".

    I was not sure whether the wordperfect11 is compatible with it or not So I did searched and found it compatible with the windows 7. If still it does not work then try to visit the official corel website and find whether you need some update to be installed or something to run this software in windows 7.

    I think you need to perform the steps which are mentioned below in order to make your word perfect 11 to save all your created file.
    * Right click on Wordperfect to properties.
    * Select the compatability tab and check box to run program in compatability mode for: then move arrow to Windows XP
    * Click OK and reboot your machine.

    I have also faced similar problems with word perfect 11. Although my computer is not capable of using the windows XP virtualization tool i solved this problem in a different way. Right clicke the wordperfedt 11 and then select trouble shooting and let it take you through the entire process but still it not worked so in desperation i restarted my system. Which really worked for me.

    I am not aware what the perfectfit does for word perfect. But for the time being i have removed it from the system. So you must open program files under that open corel/wordperfect office under that you will find programs try to rename the PerfectFit Document Management folder to XXPerfectFit. I hope that this will solve your problem.

    Hello Camryn,

    Have you checked compatibility?
    Just an FYI for you.

    It is always best to check with the software manufacturer FIRST. They will tell you if they have tested the product and the version, as well as whether or not it will work with Windows 7.
    Check out the Windows 7 Compatibility site: (There you will find out about hardware and software compatibility.)
    There is a pulldown from which you can choose "hardware" and "software".

    There are also some great articles, instructional videos and such to help with your Windows 7 at our Springboard site:

    In any event a lot of the times, Vista drivers will work in lieu of Windows 7 drivers, however, it's not 100%!

    As stated previously, it's best to have the Windows 7 certified drivers installed.

    Microsoft does have an official Windows 7 Support Forum located here . It is supported by product specialists as well as engineers and support teams. You may want to check the threads available there for additional assistance and support.

    Thanks again,
    John M.

    I wasn't able to disable perfectfit nor did changing the compatibility work. But I did find a workaround. It does create backup files. I set up a working directory for saving and for backup and set backup to occur every 1 minute.

    I would start my document. Type a few lines and then wait for it to back up.

    Then I would go in and change the wp<wp>.bk1 name to my document name.

    then I would open the renamed file. WP will save that file going forward. It won't save as. To do that, you have to rename your file outside wordperfect.

    I do use Word more and more. Word allows you to copy in heavily formatted stuff from the intenet. But I am a touch typist, and do my basic composing in WP 11. I have up to Wordperfect 2002, but I bought these suites from an academic supplier and the later versions, you had to call Corel to get a special code to install the program. So I installed WP 11 on my new
    Windows 7 laptop.

    I found a common issue in Word Perfect in Windows 7. I am using Corel WordPerfect 10 hwere there some problem in setting up the tool and saving the file. For that I found a solution related to compatiblity. For that right click on the icon and then choose Properties. Then go in compatibility tab and then choose Windows XP. Close and use it.

    I use Word Perfect 11 and Windows 7. I too was having difficulty saving my Word Perfect 11 files in Windows 7. I tried everything else that was suggested and nothing worked. However, a friend of mine took the time to check it out and this is what he came up with and it worked.

    Open Word Perfect. Go to TOOLS, SETTINGS, FILES and un-check USE ENHANCED FILE DIALOGS if it is checked. Mine was and when I un-checked it, my problem was solved. Hope this works for you.
