    how open 1.1 text document on windows 8

    I have files from a previous version names " 1.1 text document" that my new windows 8 cannot open.
    Any chance I can recuperate those files ? Thanks a lot.

    Do you have OpenOffice installed on your machine?

    Usually those all open with Office, do you have office installed? Windows 8 is pretty good with identifying what programs go with what file extensions, but if the program is not there, it will not open. If you have "Works" that might not open it.

    I switched to Libre Office a year or so ago.

    I don't use LibreOffice daily, but all files open in MS Office (2003 - 2013). I guess you have a damaged file.
