Get the landlord to use the key ?

Or on a more serious note, i think openoffice Might be able to open them but not entirely sure.

Edit:

Actually I don't think it can sorry was thinking of powerpoint not publisher for some reason.

https://www.pdfonline.com/convert_pdf.asp

As long as the file is under 2Mb, you can upload it there, and it will convert it to a PDF, then use FoxIt PDF viewer, or Adobe Acrobat Reader to view it.

Re: free program to open .pub files

I've got Publisher on my other box, if you get stuck I'm happy to open it and try and convert it to something more readable for you if that helps at all?

Re: free program to open .pub files

Looks like Druchi's way is probably best.
I looked in to this a couple of weeks ago too and OpenOffice unfortunately does not open it either.

In the future you may want to try saving the Publisher files as a web format that can open in Internet Explorer.

Re: free program to open .pub files

Adobe also offer this as a free service - but not at the moment!

http://createpdf.adobe.com/

I have previously converted a .pub to a .pdf successfully using this.

Re: free program to open .pub files

Which version of Publisher? I've got Publisher 2000. Don't know if that will open later versions.

Can your sister resave it in .rtf or .doc format so you can view it in Word? If that doesn't work, and she doesn't have a .pdf writer, GigaSize it to me and I'll convert to .pdf for you.
