Hello and thank you for choosing JA for your support needs. I know upgrades can be a true pain, but I am here to assist with the resolution of this issue. I need to know what program would normally use these files? Word 2013 or X program? Also, if you are sure that these are MS Word used files. Then use this link to grab the latest MS Word viewer software from Microsoft: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=3657ce88-7cfa-457a-9aec-f4f827f20cac&displaylang=enPlease let me know of your results...
