DO NOT BUY DOCXCONVERTER! I made the mistake of buying it myself, last year. I installed it, and was surprised to see that it required an Internet connection. Moreover, it required online activation and a series of hoops to jump through, just in order to use what I had already paid for, fair and square. One year later, my computer died, so I started using by spare. I tried to re-install DocXConverter on it and--guess what--it would not install. Online activation told me that I had already "exceeded the limit" by trying to install it on a second computer. Meanwhile I face lots of downtime until I get this resolved, if ever. Suppose I write to the programmer and ask him what's going on. Do you think that he will respond on the weekend? Fat chance. What if his little company goes out of business this years? Who is going to activate for me from then on? Do not make the mistake of buying this program.
