Batch convert wpa files

Act 19.1.63.0

 

Many of our very old attachments are wpa files.

If I click the attachment in Act, it can be converted to the newer format.


Is it possible to convert all wpa files at one in a batch run or similar (COM, scripting ...).

 

Convert to doc would be nice but is not mandatory.

I used AutoIt to convert thousands of old wpa files to newer format.

Hi,

 

There would not be a way that i know of but there maybe an addon available that will do this.

 

I would like to mention that if you converted the file a .WPA to a .doc the attachment within Act! would remain the same as it includes the file extension, you would also need to reattach each file within Act.
