When you UN-Install use this FIX-IT:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us...

It should remove any registry keys that may be left floating around by the
regular uninstall program.
You might also want to run something like CCleaner and remove any stray
registry files it finds.

Found this page, but it seems to apply only to the WPFT 632 part of the
error message. It also is a registry hack.

They do offer a software solution, but it appears to be for recovering a
corrupt document. Proceed with caution, as I have never used this site.

What type of file are you attempting to open?

Have you tried doing a Repair from Control Panel?

Hi Mike,

Thanks for your response l have attempted repair in control panel that doesn't work.
The file am opening in Word 2016 is the Word option to see if the converter has been inactive or active this is when the above messages appear then it allows me in.

What type of file are you attempting to open?

Is it a PDF, DOC, or some other type file.
How was the file created?

I believe the error WPFT 532 is for Word Perfect files.

You might also try a Windows Restore to a date prior to the error and see how that works.

As a last resort, do a complete UN-Install and RE-Install.
