File Conversion Center does not limit what types of files it will try to convert; the file extension and the operating system’s file associations are used to determine what application to use when converting each file, and if it is one that File Conversion Center supports.




Upon installation, a set of commonly used files extensions are validated and mapped to one of the applications supported by File Conversion Center as listed in Required Applications. File Conversion Center can convert any file that can be opened and printed by any of the supported applications. As new file extensions are encountered that can be opened, they are added to the list of files types that can be converted.

File Conversion Center comes pre-set to convert the following types of files; new files are added dynamically as explained in the next section.

Microsoft Word files (*.doc, *.rtf, *.txt, *.wri, *.log, *.xml)

Microsoft Excel files (*.xls, *.xlw, *.xlc)

Microsoft PowerPoint files (*.ppt, *.pps)
