I need to give some more information here before anything else. In more recent years I have had different PCs which ran Windows 7 and XP but I was transferring files from even earlier PCs going back to Windows 95 and 98. The problem now seems to be that my current PC (HP Pavilion all in one) runs Windows 10 and it doesn't seem very friendly.
The file in question was written in Lotus wordpro and ran perfectly well in Windows 7, XP. However, I have tried Bill's (Wallace) suggestion and the PC will not let me get past clicking on kvlotus.exe. I have even tried another download from a different website with the same result, except that my PC allowed me to take 40 minutes to download 345MBs and then told me it could not run it. Incidentally Bill, I have the full official software for Lotus Smartsuite but Windows 10 will not even let me download that.
Thanks for the other advice lads (Brian,Barry,Mac,John,Ricky) but you are talking to someone who is not computer wise. I will try to get my head around what you all say but I might have a job.
I wrote a book some years ago which went to 400 pages of text and photos which I saved to a disc. My PC is trashing that with the same type of gobbledegook. So, it's not the end of the world but very disconcerting all the same.
