    An error message in Word 2013

    An Error message in Word 2013 when opening a file is:

    This file can't be previewed because of an error in the Microsoft Word previewer.

    Is there a solution to this problem?

    Have you tried turning the file preview off in Windows Explorer?

    Thank you. It seems that for some reason the most recent Microsoft Word Update didn't download automatically. I discovered this some hours after posting my query and then downloaded it manually. The problem now appears to have been solved, but I'm left with the question of why the download didn't occur! Any thoughts?

    Thanks again.
