At last... you can open Microsoft Works files quickly and easily on your Mac with WPS Wizard.

★★★ Mac and Windows Versions Fully Supported ★★★
Most versions of Microsoft Works formatted files are supported, including Windows Microsoft Works versions 2.0/3.0/4.0/5.0/8.0, and DOS Microsoft Works version 2.0.
★★★ Opens ANY Microsoft Works File Formats (File Extensions) ★★★
No need to change your file extension to view it in WPS Wizard. Simply drag and drop ANY Microsoft Works file into the program window and it will auto-magically open (hence the “wizard” name).
(WPS Wizard does NOT open .WPD files, which are WordPerfect files... as you probably know.)
★★★ Preserves Most Microsoft Works Page Formatting* ★★★
WPS Wizard presents your documents the way that they are meant to be: in paginated format (neat pages). Most text styling, footnotes, bullet point lists, line spacing, charts, and more are maintained.
(* Exact preserved page formatting depends on Microsoft Works file version. Please do not send us hate mail if a text underline is missing here or there.)
★★★ Simple Drag-and-Drop Interface ★★★
Simply drag the file into the program window to view! No need to waste time navigating your Finder each time to open a file... what a drag that would be.
★★★ Elegant Program Interface ★★★
WPS Wizard utilizes classic Apple design standards to provide you with a user interface that feels like a “native” Mac program. No fancy functions for you to learn here.
★★★ Zoom To Your Preference ★★★
Zoom in or zoom out to find your ideal reading size. Our mothers like the text big, while we like it small.
★★★ Quick Page Navigation ★★★
Use the PDF-style, sidebar page navigation or the old school browsing controls on the toolbar. It’s your Microsoft Works journey – explore it however you like.
★★★ Easy Content Export ★★★
You can easily Copy/Paste the WPS document content to another program, or export it as an RTF or PDF, so the rest of the world can also enjoy your masterpiece.
★★★ Find Things Quickly ★★★
Need to find something quickly in a 5,000 page document? No problem! Simply click the “Find” button, put in your search term in the box, and you’re on your way. If it is indeed a 5,000 page document, well, good luck with that.
This is the part where we say “go buy this now”, so go buy this now and start opening those Microsoft Works documents in seconds!

Works as Advertised - I just switched over to using a Mac after 25+ years as a loyal Windows PC user. Over that quarter decade, I have accumulated around ~800 Microsoft Works documents mostly from my work. I use this little program to open those documents when needed, and copy them over to Microsoft Word for Mac to save in DOC format. It's very easy to use, and keeps most (not all) of the original formatting and layout. I love the drag and drop feature; very useful. I highly recommend it if you need a way to open your Microsoft Works files on Mac.
I have tried every approach and all failed. - I tried many extensions and no extension. I lost a little money and a lot of precious time that I didn't have to spare. Anyone who buys this program is also wasting time and money. Oh yes, the program has no help on it and neither Apple nor Solvusoft has any help on their sites. Good luck if you buy it, but don't say I didn't tell you about it. As I now turn down to "Submit" I notice that "if a reveiw is deemed inappropriate, it will not be posted to the App Store." That may explain why it has high ratings!

WPS Wizard - Working great for me. Thank you to whomever created it.
Microsoft works documents .xlr files - On vacation with my new mac book pro, we were using microsoft works as a supplimental invoice program, So we had a thumb drive with files on it. Cient called and needed some rewording for insurance claims. no problem. insert thumb drive but could not open works files, so to the app store… After down loading the $9.99 program, tried to open .xlr file we get message of file not supported. A microsoft file xlr extension not supported? The only purpose of this program is to open a .xlr file and you cant do that. Please return my money, your program did not do what you stated it would do. Plain and simple. Marcello D
