Hi mezetti: Download and install NeoOffice. It will open a wps file, you can then convert/save it to one of many file types including .DOC.
Available at: http://www.neooffice.org/neojava/en/download.php#download
Are you SURE Word won't open it? This is cut and pasted from Words help file:
Open a file that is in a different format
Word provides file format converters to open files that were created in other applications. These converters are installed with Word.
On the File menu, click Open.
On the Enable pop-up menu, click the file type that you want to open.
File types sometimes become unavailable. If you don't see the file type, or if you don't know the file type, click All Documents.
Locate the document that you want to open, and then double-click it.
Because Word must convert the file to open it, some changes might occur in the document's formatting, graphics, and fonts.
I'm having the same challenge and found this blog on another board interesting:
But, no luck yet. Gonna try some of the fixes shown here; THANKS!
