Hi. What operating system are you using?
Try moving the file to the same directory as your publisher .exe file. Will it let you open it now?
The file association needs to be fixed for Windows 7.
Click on your start button, then click default programs. then click associate a file type or protocol woth a program. click on the the file type .pub and click change program. windows should bring up publisher for you to select, or click on "other" and navugate to publisher that way
Nevemind the comment for moving your file to the .exe file. Sorry about that..was meant for someone else :-) let me know when yiu are successful :)
Okay tried that three times, still states not valid Win32 Application
If I open Publisher I can open a Publisher doc in the H drive, but this is the long way around and time consuming, a Pub doc
should open directly
Also get incapatible application!
I understand and agree that you shouldn't have to do it that way. No worries! We will get it fixed. I want you to right-click your .pub file and choose "open with", and then choose publisher. Is this successful?
Yes. R click on Publisher opens okay
I have to go soon, so are there any other options I can try
To change the file association, please do this : Right click the .pub file and then click > Properties > General tab > Type Of File > Change > Choose Microsoft Publisher from the list of recommended or other programs or else click Browse to select Publisher. Let me know if this method works for you.
Hi Im back again still with the same publisher problem, I tried your last suggestion, but thats what Ive tried previously and yes it opens Publisher. I still cannot open any of the previously installed Publisher docs only by opening Publisher first.Maybe I will have to uninstall/reinstall Publisher, your thoughts
Still no luck! still get error not a Win32 Application
When trying to open a Publisher doc still getting not a Win32 Application
Still waiting on a reply!
As it is a company LT computer and ongoing issue, I have decided to sort out the problem locally. thanks anyway
