An executable named .doc


GNU/Linux kernel 2.6

Hi:
I entered www.pcchips.com.tw/PCCWebSite and have downloaded what is said to be the M758 motherboard manual. It has extension .doc and the file command says 'Microzoft installer'!? Under windows (MS), Word refuses to read it. Neither adobe acrobat does. Neither djvu.

What could possibly be the sense of this? Any sugestion will be welcome. Thanks for reading.

It's exactly what it said, a Microsoft installer. It installs the *.zip file which you then unzip to create the *.doc file. It needs to be done in windows, not linux. It is a binary file, not a text file, so is not readable by text reading programs.

Please take windows questions to a windows forum, not a linux one. You'll get more help that way.

@tommyttt :
Read post # 5 : Just unzip the 758+s51.zip
with the command : unzip 758+s51.zip
And open the result = 758+s51.doc with OpenOffice...
.....

It's just 52 pages of text about an old mother board.. QUOTE :
This mainboard has a Socket-370 processor socket for Intel FCPGA Celeron,
FCPGA Pentium III or Tualatin/Tualatin Celeron processors.
You can install any one of these processors on this mainboard.
This mainboard supports front-side bus speeds of 66MHz, 100MHz or 133MHz.
.....

He might not have Windows, and it's hardly worth installing Wine just for a text editor.
