HI I've downloaded SP 1 for Office and the compatablity pack and I still cannot open *.docx files from work. I have restarted my computer.
A little more info: I have a PC and a laptop at home and on my laptop downloading the SP1 and the campatability pack worked and I can open my work files; however, I did the same thing on my pc and the *.docx files just download as a zip and they will not open in word. I know there is something funny about the beta version, so I have tried opening exactlly the same file on my laptop it will open and on PC it won't. Only diff I know is home comp is running XP Pro and laptap is running XP Home. Can anyone help this is VERY fustrating!
Thank you,
Kris

Did you read all the fine print and made sure eveything was good before installing the pack?

Yes, I did. Thank you for the suggestion though. Any other ideas?

Update it to SP3

I tried downloading SP3 for Office. Reloading the compatability plugin and then restarting and trying to open the *.docx file on my pc, (the same file will open on my laptop) but still no luck.

More ideas????

Did you install SP3 AND the rest of the Office updates, before installing the compat pack?

you could try and save the documents in .doc instead of .docx
