LegacyFileConverter is a 32-bit Windows application that make it easy to run the old Word for Word file converters in modern Windows systems. It uses the 1995-era Word for Word for DOS program, briefly released by Adobe in its Adobe File Utilities package, now packaged in a compiled AutoIt script. The package only converts files in formats in use before 1995; do not try to use it with modern formats like DOCX, ODT, Word 2007, etc.

The utility was first released in its current form in May 2020.
