WP 10 RTF Export requires MSWord!

Ronald-
Sorry, but you will have to install a version -any version of MSWord - on your computer to use WP 8 or subs!

Why? Because you need to use the "Word" version of the RTF reports, and UFT won't save it to file unless it finds a copy of "Winword.exe" on your computer.

Call it a glitch, or call it convoluted programming that didn't quite get fixed at the time they pulled the plug on UFT 3.1. Either way you need a copy of MSWord to Use current versions of Wordperfect.

Why did it work with WP 6 and 7? Custom tailoring to use WP line/boxdrawing fonts before the release of 32 bit Word with its vector line drawing features.
