How come I am having problems opening my AbiWord document?

by on March 3, 2009

Q: I was recently working on a paper on my computer. I saved it early that morning and when I woke up four hours later and tried to click on the document, it said error importing file c:/documentsandsettings/administrator/mydocuments/mybook/thebalconyabiword.abw. What can I do to fix this?

    It’s been a long time since I’ve used AbiWord, but I think that the program has an automatic backup folder somewhere on your computer’s main hard drive. Open AbiWord and search the Preferences and Help for more info on that possibility.

    If that fails, you may wish to COPY the file from your mybook folder and paste it onto your desktop. Then try to open the version of the file that is on your desktop.

    PS: It is extremely dangerous to run Microsoft Windows as THE Administrator. It is safer to run it as AN administrator.

    Does this help?
