Batch Converting Lotus Wordpro files

  sheila.weston 09:46 26 Apr 2009

I have just tried installing Lotus Wordpro on my Vista laptop and, of course, it won't install. I have read the ?two threads on this forum and also done a GOOGLE which brings up a lot of suggestions, but is rather confusing. Can anyone recommend a (preferably) free batch converter? I can convert them individually via Lotus on my XP machine, but hope to replace this soon.

Thank you, as always.

What do you want to convert them to?

Sorry - to a Word doc file or something which can be read by Word.

Very many thanks, AndySD. I have downloaded Lotus Keyview (on the page you give) which allows me to view the odd file (from the external drive) on my Vista machine. And I have also downloaded the ScriptFile converter, which appears to be just what I want. I'll transfer it to the XP machine and have a go over the weekend.

I'll mark this thread as 'Resolved'.
