Works Document Viewer Overview
What is Works Document Viewer? Works Document Viewer is an app that allows Mac users to view Microsoft Works for Windows documents without the need for a Windows laptop. The app converts Works documents into PDF, RTF, or TXT formats and supports batch conversion. However, it is not an editor and does not preserve complex page formatting, metadata, margins, headers, or footers. The app only views document files and does not handle spreadsheet files. Technical support is available from the developer. The app is currently on sale for a limited time at a discounted price of $24.99.

Terrific app! Worked perfectly and easily.
Over the last two weeks I set up a brand new Windows running El Capitan for my wife. After transferring the photos and documents from her old Windows, we discovered that there were several documents that Pages would not open, giving a “cannot open that format” or words to that effect message. After discovering these were Microsoft Works files, I found a reference to Works Document Viewer on the Microsoft Support forums and checked it out in the App store. It sounded like exactly what we needed, so I bought it—can’t go wrong for $3.99! It was incredibly easy to use and after experimenting with the conversion of a single file to ensure it would open in Pages, I batch converted all the Works files, which the program stored immediately in the new folder I had created for them. The batch conversion process took about one second when everything was ready to go. Couldn’t have been easier. We really don’t have any other files to convert, but this program was certainly worth every penny to breath new life into these old family documents. I recommend it highly.
It did the job (& very well)
I used this app to open an old WPS file that a family member had developed a few years ago in Microsoft Works. Before using this app, I first tried to open the file using my PC computer, thinking that I could open WPS files in Microsoft Word or via a free app in the Microsoft store. Wrong on both accounts. So, I went to the Microsoft App Store and found this program. It downloaded quickly and once it did, all I had to do was drag and drop the file into the program's “drop zone” (which opened automatically when I downloaded the program) and then the WPS file opened almost instantly. Couldn’t have been easier. After gaining access to the text, I pasted it into Microsoft Word, saved and printed the new Word file, and was on my way - except for writing this review! I’m not sure how often I’ll have a need to use this app in the future, but it sure did the job for me today!
Works very well — Developer very responsive to questions
Just purchased this program and it is extremely easy to use.. just click on the file (or even multiple files at the same time) and convert them.. Fantastic.. thought I had hours of recovery time to fix the files… Had a question and the developer responded within 3 hours… WOW.. well worth the money..
Easy to use
This is a great app! Just drag and drop and everything pops up for you in a new window as perfect as when it was first written. Thank you so much! Way better than the apps that only show you half of the document. Thank you so much!
