I got this error today “Word cannot start the converter mswrd632.wpc” I managed to fix this error so I thought I would write up about it here. I saw this issue on a microsoft windows 2003 system with microsoft office 2007. Below is a screenshot of the error message.
If you click on the red X the document will open with no issue. You get this issue with you open a plain text file or another kind of file that is not a Microsoft Word file, but has a .doc extension
To suppress this error we need to unregister the mswrd632.wpc text converter by doing the following.
- open regedit, click start > Run type regedit and click ok
- located the following key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Text Converters\Import\MSWord6.wpc
- Delete the MSword6.wpc folder / key
Below is a video I created which shows you how to resolve this
