How to open amipro files in Word

Besides using Wordport to convert sam (amipro) files, I have learnt of a way to open it directly from Word. You need to do the following to enable Word to read your amipro files.

1 Download the Amipro to Word converter from http://www.gmayor/downloads.htm
2 Look for the Amirp converter for Word whose length is 114 kb.
3 Click on it to save the file
4 Unzip this file to a new folder called Ami332.
5 a) For Windows 32-bit user,
copy Ami332.cnv to C:\\ProgramFiles\CommonFiles\MicrosoftShared\TextCnv\Ami332.cnv
b) For Windows 64-bit user,
go to the 64-bit folder and copy Ami332.cnv to C:\ProgramFiles(x86)\CommonFiles\MicrosoftShared\TextCnv\Ami332.cnv
6 Merge the registry patch given

Now if you open any amipro or sam files in Word, it will be opened without fail. Then you can save the file in doc or docx. It is another way of converting your sam files to doc or docx files.

I hope this tip will be of use to those who still have sam files but do not have the amipro software anymore because all those sam files can be converted using the above method.

Happy computing.
