WD6X: WinWord 6.0 Text Converter Locations and Their .INI Entries

Q106257



The information in this article applies to:


  • Microsoft Word for Windows, versions 6.0, 6.0a, 6.0c





SUMMARY

The following is a list of file locations and .INI entries for all the text converters that come with Microsoft Word version 6.0 for Windows and its supplemental text converters.



MORE INFORMATION

Text converters supplied with Word 6.0 for Windows are either shared with other programs or not (that is, used only by Word 6.0). If Word installs a converter in the C:\Windows\Msapps\Textconv directory (where C:\Windows is the location of your Windows program directory), it is a shared converter. If Word installs a converter in the Word 6.0 program directory, it is a non-shared converter. All shared converters are registered in the Win.ini file under the [MS Text Converters] section. All non-shared converters are registered in the Winword6.ini file under the [MSWord Text Converters] section.
