Service Pack 1 for WordPerfect X5 Released

November 14, 2010 at 7:48 pm

The first service pack (patch) for WordPerfect Office X5 (WPO X5) was released earlier this month.

The patch, which can be applied to the Standard, Professional, Home & Student, and Try-Before-You-Buy editions of WPO X5, enhances the stability of the programs in the WPO suite; increases their compatibility with Microsoft Office; and — to the relief of many long-time WordPerfect users — restores the generic “File Open” format (i.e., so that the Open File dialog is set to display all files, rather than just WordPerfect [.wpd format] files). There is one patch available for English-language versions and another for French-language versions.

This page on Corel’s web site gives an overview of the suite-wide issues, as well as the issues specific to WordPerfect, Quattro Pro, and Presentations, that SP1 resolves. For a complete list, go to this ReadMe page.

Corel offers these “Quick Instructions” for downloading and applying the patch:

“To install this update:

  • Download the update onto your system by saving it to your hard drive.
  • Double-click the installer file to begin the update.
  • Follow the instructions to review the Software License Agreement and complete the install.
  • If you encounter any technical difficulties installing this update, please contact Corel Support Services.”

You can download either the English patch or the French patch from this page .

Note that the page with the quick installation instructions indicates that you might need your original WP X5 CD in order to complete the process.

After you have applied the service pack, the “build number” (release number) of your version — which you can find by launching WordPerfect and clicking the Help menu, About WordPerfect — should update from 15.0.0.357 to 15.0.0.431.
