encOffice/encDOC - Unable to view secured files in Word 2000
I investigated a question from Frank from The Netherlands. He could not open an Excel document secured with encXLS in Excel 2000:
I found that a different message is displayed in Word 2000 when trying to open an encOffice secured Word document.
On opening the MS Word document that was secured using encDOC, MS Word asks first for the password. After the (correct) password was entered the following message is displayed:  
The document name or path is not valid. Try these suggestions.
* Check the file permissions for the document or drive.
* Use the File Open dialog box to locate the document.
Please note that viewing documents created by encDOC is only possible with Word 2002 (XP) or later.

This is because Word 2000 and earlier versions do not support strong encryption. They only support a cryto service provider with known vulnerabilities. EncOffice uses a Crypto service provider (CSP) with strong encryption. That CSP is only supported from Word 2002.
