Anyone have a Picture It! .MIX converter?

Topic says it all.  I've got several CDs of .MIX files, but don't want to purchase "Picture It!" just to convert the images to photoshop or psp.  Is anyone aware of any converters that can convert it retaining the layer information to a Photoshop or Paintshop Pro format?

From what I understand the MIX format is a proprietry format which Microsoft will not release details of, as such they can only be opened with Picture It and PhotoDraw.  There is however a little work around you could use if you have MS Office XP (2002).  If you dont have the XP version, then you can try to update the convertors of an older MS Word version from the following site: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q212265

The workaroud is as follows:  In Word, insert a picture from file and select you mix file.  Once inserted, choose Save as Web Page, and then select a location.  Now, just explore to that folder where you saved the files and you should have the mix file converted to a jpeg format... although it will have a different name from before.

Hrm.  But like I said, " retaining the layer information "

Converting to a JPEG wouldn't do that.  However, that does pretty much answer my question.  I guess I'll just try to dig up an old copy of Picture It.  Thanks.
