    Compatibility Pack for pre-2007 Office not working in Win10 for xlsx


    Being cheap and "if it ain' t broke, don't fix it" I'm using my Office 2000 on my Windows 10 machine. Just as I've been using it for almost 20 years, in multiple operating systems.

    When Office 2007 came out, and the docx and xlsx formats, Windows provided a "Compatibility Pack" to allow older versions of the Office software to open the new file formats.

    I downloaded that onto the Windows 10 machine, ran it, and it works fine for docx files - Word 2000 can open, read, edit, save them.

    But not so for xlsx files with Excel 2000.

    A lot of these compatibility packs, maybe all, are gone from the web. I transferred to my Win10 machine from my Win7 machine the FileConverters.exe (version 12.0.6514.5001) that worked great in Windows 7 and ran it. But still, no fix. And I can, using that same version, use Excel 2000 on xlsx files in Windows 7.

    Is there some Windows 10 trick I need to do, to enable Excel 2000 to work for me, as it does in Windows 7?

    :)
