One of my customers has been sending me a lot of different jobs lately, and I see that Studio 2011 rejects doc files or ppx files from the word go, and I always have to up the version to docx or pptx, whereupon it works perfectly. The customer suggested I should activate tw4Winmark for the Office formats, and I did that, but it still refuses. It's not critical in that I can always update the versions, but it's annoying.

Anyone know how to fix it?

Thanks.

Fix what? Mar 2, 2015

Hi Mervyn,

That's a bit of an open question I'm afraid as there couiild be any number of reasons for this problem. If you have a warning about tw4Winmark then you can address this in the filetype options. But if not then the problem is more likely to be something else.

Sometimes a DOC/PPT is really a DOCX/PPTX, or even the other way around, depending on how they are created. This can cause Studio to get a little upset too as it uses the extension to help with the recognition and know what filetype to use.

If you can share a file or two I'd be happy to take a look and see whether I can help identify the issue?

Regards

Thanks Paul Mar 2, 2015

... once again. I'm afraid I can't share files, sorry.

I wasn't clear about its, sorry, but I don't get a message about tw4Winmark, it's the customer who said it might be that. The message, roughly translated from the Spanish, is:

Cannot load File or assembly [????] "Sdl.FileTypeSupport.Framework.Adapter.Framework1. Version=1.0.4623.24376. Culture=neutral". PublicKey Token=c28cdb26c445c888, or any of their dependents. The system cannot find the file specified.

None of which I understand, obviously.

... Studio cannot find a filetype to match the file you are asking it to open. So I would be suspicious of the file itself.

Just a thought Mar 2, 2015

Have you checked your project settings (Project Settings\File Types) to make sure that Microsoft Word 2000-2003 is enabled?

If it isn't, you can dig it out of the list of available file types and enable it manually.

... and apparently they can work with the doc. Word is enabled OK, all versions, as far as I can see. Customer's looking into it as well.

... because Word doesn't care whether it's a DOC or DOCX or a wrongly named Word extension. Studio does because it's not Word and it uses the extension to help with the file recognition. Maybe you can anonymise the content and share a file? So search and replace all the text with crosses or something like that, and delete all the images?

Might be easier to resolve if we can stop guessing?
