This is a piece of software that batch converts DOC files to DOCX and DOCX files to DOC formats.
Batch Docx to Doc Pro is a windows utility to convert DOCX to DOC and DOC to DOCX in batches. Conversion can be done one at a time too, of course. You do not need to have the Microsoft Office Word program loaded into your machine. The interface is simple and straightforward. Though, I am not sure I like the color scheme so much. The icons are simple. They would have been intuitive too, except that one icon is marked “adds” and means, according to the tooltip “add a folder”. Similarly a button marked “removes” means “remove all”. That is not very intuitive! Once you have collected the files, it is just a single click on the convert button to get the process started.
The progress bar on the interface shows you how the process is going. One wishes there was a log feature also available. Format conversions are always tricky and there is bound to be combinations of features in one format and the other that can throw the process out of gear. Similarly, on some combinations the process may fail altogether. Either way, logs will be useful messages for debug. These are the reasons one should try out the tool thoroughly for the types of documents one uses in their workflow. You would need to make sure no problems exist, nor some artifacts are generated in the converted document. There was a spurious error message displayed during our testing. This is a limited functionality tool.
