Need to view a Microsoft Works for Windows document on your Mac? There's an app for that.


Finally, you can view the contents of Works email attachments without having to ask a friend to borrow their Windows laptop!

Works Document Viewer uses the same technology as our popular Works Viewer for iOS (available on the App Store).

Works Document Viewer converts Works for Windows documents into PDF, RTF, or TXT. Drag and drop files into Works Document Viewer, or open them directly.

Our handy batch conversion feature allows you convert all of your documents at once!

Once you've exported your Works document, you can edit the results in your word processor of choice.

• Works Document Viewer is NOT an editor: it converts your WPS documents into a format that can be read on your Mac.

• Works Document Viewer does NOT preserve complex page formatting, metadata, margins, headers or footers. Please see the screenshots for representative examples of converted content. Works Document Viewer supports Microsoft Works 2.0 for DOS and Works 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 for Windows (Works for Mac is NOT supported).

• Works Viewer only views document files; it does not handle spreadsheet files (XLR).

Technical support is readily available from: [email protected]


Release Notes:

• Improved file extension support.

Unexpected Gold For Quick Conversion - Installed and was able to view many documents in Works and Word immediately. Upon installation in Applications, Works Document Viewer went through all files and folders and automatically converted these to be able to view on my iMac. It was a relief to find a program that did not require me to open it first and place files in it to convert. At such a reasonable price it was worth the money. AAA+

Does not work properly - Spent $$ for this WPS viewer, but it cuts off most of each document. One page per document is shown. This is a worthless application that does not work properly.

Has batch conversion option and save to .docx - Had a question for the developer who responded promptly. This App allows you to batch convert your .wps files. This is a real time saver! Also, this App allows you to save directly in the Microsoft Word formats .doc and .docx.

Easy to use - This is a great app! Just drag and drop and everything pops up for you in a new window as perfect as when it was first written. Thank you so much! Way better than the apps that only show you half of the document. Thank you so much!

Simple to use and the best! - I need this app since I spent too muich time working on a PC. This gets all of my Works files up and running on OS-X, where I tend to migrate the files to other publishing platforms. Thank you!

Works very well — Developer very responsive to questions - Just purchased this program and it is extremely easy to use.. just click on the file (or even multiple files at the same time) and convert them.. Fantastic.. thought I had hours of recovery time to fix the files… Had a question and the developer responded within 3 hours… WOW.. well worth the money..

Does not work for Microsoft Works files that show up as .exec - No luck with older Micorsoft Works fiels that show up on Yosemite as .exec files.
