WD5X: Installing the RFT-DCA Converter in MacWord 5.x


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Word for the Macintosh, versions 5.0, 5.1, 5.1a


The Microsoft Word 5.0, 5.1, and 5.1a installer does not install the RFT- DCA converter. You must install the converter using the Customize option in the installer. This is also the case for Works 2.0 for the Macintosh.


To install the RFT-DCA converter:

  1. Double click on the Installer icon on the Word Install disk.
  2. When the first window appears, click OK.
  3. Click Continue.
  4. Click Customize.
  5. Scroll down until the converters you want are in view. Choose the RFT- DCA Converter option.
  6. Click Install.
  7. Word asks where you want the converters installed. Locate the folder that the Word program is in and click Install.
  8. At the end of the installation, choose the Quit option.


For more information on performing a custom installation of Word 5.x, see page 12 of the Word versions 5.0, 5.1, and 5.1a Getting Started manual.
