Problem: When you try opening an Word 2007 file in 2003 using compatibility pack, you will be shown the error ‘This is a pre-release version of the Compatibility Pack and can open pre-release Office 2007 files only. Do you want to check for a newer version of the Compatibility Pack?’.

Cause: Files created other than Original verion of Office 2007 will cause this issue. (like the file created in ultimate edition, when opened throws this error).

Solution:  You need to recreate the file one of the Original version of MS Office.
