I purchased a Asus PC model CM6785, with windows 8. I have been using Word Perfectx5.

I was told that x5 would not run on Widows 8, but that Woed Perfect x6 would. I want to transfer my x5 files tothe x6 version.

I installed x6,but when I tried to open WP, I received this message - "Application has requested the runtime to terminate. Contact application support team."

Please help me

Hello there, Thanks for using Justanswer.

Add to Favorites this page ( Bookmark ). Use the favorites to come back if you loose this page.

You don't have to worry about this error.

There is a patch for this application. You need to install it manually.

Go to the page below.

Install the Service pack 1 (at bottom).

Then install the service pack 2.

After that install the Hotfix.

After that update the Visual C++ update from the following link.

Restart the computer after installing these updates.

Let me know the result.

Still says that the PC cannot run the app. I 1) went to pack 1 at the bottom, right clicked on save and downloaded (no run option appeared). 2)I downloed pack 2 ( in the middle - just clicked on run). Went to Hot fix and downloded - just run. 3) went to the Microsoft site and downloaded. A window opened, and I clicked on a box (File) three files were listed and a check mark appeared nest to each. I xlicked download, and the rejection message appeared. I did not restart my computer, because of the rejection.
After finishing the download, Run the downloaded file. Tell me the exact error you get.

Make sure that you run the downloaded Service Pack 1 file , Not the Word perfect application.

After restarting the computer WPx6 appears to be functional. But I have not prepared any documents.

I now want to transfer my WPx5 files to WPx6. They are on flash drives. What is the best way to make the transfer
You can just copy the files to your computer, That is the easiest way. Just copy it to the new computer.
