I had a large number of .RDF files I wanted to use in Pages, I put the s/w to the test and in a couple minutes I converted 5MB of files to .DOC documents. ALL converted with no hiccups or problems in the process. Well worth the $ for this fantastic piece of s/w Thank you for you work .. I will register this s/w right now - did what it claimed it would do and solved all my problems by putting all my mishmash info in .DOC format. Bye ye to .RTF documents!

I have been using the software since 2008 and I feel it deserves to be rated.
I would like to see this app in the app store for simpler updates. It is not perfect ( need to update it manually, PDF could be added to Word ) hope my rating will encourage the dev to add those features.
Keep up the good work!

works exactly as advertised, very easy to use ( drag and drop thing ). The devs are more than responsive which I find really important. I find the price range a bit steep, but then since i dont work for free I dont expect other people to work for free either. 4.5 stars for all the features, and if they would include a video encoder too ( as per their email they might ) it would get a 5 star from me.
Bottom line: Usefully tool to have.

I need a program that converts Macwrite files to a current Word format. (or even a not-so-current). I have a number of MacWrite II files that I can no longer open. I understand this program USED to have that functionality but they've since removed it. I presume because they figure no one needs it anymore. Well, some of us DO. Perhaps they can release a stand-alone MacWrite converter? That would be most helpful for I believe a number of us, and a great introduction to your program. On another note, I have a bunch of old mac/aol sounds that need converting, and unfortunately nothing current opens those EITHER.

Or maybe I just need a virtual old Mac...

hey this is NOT shareware , only a stupid DEMO...
which obviously doesn't make accessible the only features could interest. very very SMART dev LOL...
for the rest the application is totally useless since now we have out there many others which can accomplish the same for Free...

and frankly im not willing to pay just to have a black farting shining app on desktop...

I was just wondering how you guys feel about how you trashed your program by deleting the MacWrite, Sound, and other files from OS 9 and below. You do not give one damn about the MacUser at all! I gave you the files to do it and you did, you did it so well that I could open them in Text Edit with all setting save as well. But you could not stand to give me any credit for it or even give me a serial number so instead you took a step backwards and removed it but, I save my DLs and just went back to the original version so even though I cannot do batch conversion, I can do it one at a time. At least you were stupid enough to not put a timer on it and I have resurrected almost almost all my reviews from 1985 - 2000. Your program had such potentiality but, you had to bite the hand that fed you. Like I said you could care less about the MacUser. Well, at least I have the satisfaction of how your downloads have dropped. You deserve everything you get. End of Line...

Dude, we get the point. You gave them some way to convert an old, obscure document format, they didn't credit you. Nobody wants to scroll past all your rants to read the actual reviews. You don't have to force this shit on MU's users just because you didn't get what you wanted from the dev.

When I read what I did in the responses, I decided to refute what has been said. First let be be clear, I did send them MacWrite and sound files from pre OS X and they did integrate them into the program. I am guessing that most of the people that are asking why I made a fuss over AC. Many people have been using Macs since OS X and no idea of what life was like on OS 9 and early. If they are like me, then they have a folder like I had was a folder of MacWrite & MacWrite Pro docs they wished some converter for these files. BY the use of my contributions they expanded the use of AC. I was going to give them a copy of a rosetta stone that was composed for OS9 and earlier. At that point, I felt that I did deserved some minor compensation but, they would not put this wonderful feature in the description. If they did then they would have to credit it to me. I wrote them on only to land on a deaf ear. Then they did a reversal update by removing the OS 9 features which told me that these people were not a Mac person company. So, Virtualruffy as you see, it ran much deeper than you realized. If I was to guess You probably never worked in pre OS 10 to realize how important for those who go back to the 128k cannot understand the # of MacWrite Files we created. I still have a version of AC that can still convert MW docs in to RTF that can be opened in Text Edit. So for you as far as I can tell the significant of getting back you files back was a miracle AND THEY DELETED IT. Yes I was a reviewer for over 23+ years. If you wish to see some go to
atpm.com/archives/What's Under the Hood and you be able to place your foot in you mouth and read my stuff. End of Line

I write again because these people are very spiteful. They have removed the MacWrite converter from their last PPC version. This tells me that they do not give a BM about MacUsers by doing this. Luckily I had an earlier copy and went back to it. People who develop software for us normal care about us and do their best to supply us with as much as the program can do. This is the first time in my writing history where a developer took a step backwards just to spite my comments and take away a resource that seasoned MacUsers needed. I was at a user group meeting not too long ago and took a poll of how many people wish there was a converter that could convert pre-OS 10 media into usable OS X media and about 200 hands went up. So there is a need for a converter and the people that AC basically shot them selves in the foot for their own stupidity! I urge a boycott of this software because obviously they do not give a damn about MacUsers! I have noticed that the download count has dropped so some people seem to agree with me. All I know is if a programmer is willing to take a program a step backwards, obviously should not be supported.

I wrote one comment about them, now I will say more. These are the most selfish people I have ever dealt with. They still neglect to say that AC can also convert old MacWrite files to RTF that can then be opened in Word because I gave the material needed to do it and I have never got a thank you from them or even a serial number for the time I spent helping them! That is the reason they do not state it because they would have to give me credit in it's development. I have other material I would like to send them, but with I could care less on how you help us, I refuse to send them any more material or programs that would infinitely increase the over all power of this SW that would help Macusers with files prior to OS 10. I am a very ill person who cannot work and only gets SSDI each month and that does not even cover my bills. I hoped that by my help they would include me in their development team to that maybe I could make a few dollars to help me. I have written to them directly several times and they never responded at all! I do not know the age or what type of people they are, but, by their treatment of me I would say the are a bunch of spoiled, selfish, uncaring, bites the hand that feeds them and sadly it is the users out there that are losing out of major converting processes that I have from OS 9 and lower that they could incorporate into the program. My help has gone thankless and they purposely leave out the fact about MacWrite docs. This a good program, but I have the material to make it great. End of Line...

I like this app a lot. It's simple and effective. But HOW do you upgrade?

There's no check in the app, and no upgrade link on their website. I have a registered copy of v3.3.3, it's now at 3.3.9. I downloaded it and it says UnRegistered, with no way to enter my registration details. Seems my only option is to buy again at full price.

I'm damned if I want to pay the full price for a point.point release. TBH, I don't really want to pay anything extra for bug fixes and compatibility updates.

I have a REGISTERED version of AlienConverter 3.3.4. On downloading and installing this latest version of AlienConverter, (i.e. version 3.3.6), I received the application clearly marked (and identified in the Menu Bar) as UNREGISTERED. I can find absolutely no option to input my previous License Number, nor any information whatsoever as to how to license it. So what is the position ? I have no desire or intention to pay for this application again.

g8tgod had trouble on 15 Jan 2006
I'm having trouble converting from Word 5.1 format to Word X format. Is this supported? It appears to be, as the file seems to convert (the program appears to process the file), but there is no new file produced, and the old file is not overwritten.

Is the program able to distinguish between these two versions of Word? It would be a great boon to be able to convert all of my old 5.1 files to either the new format or RTF.
