So does that mean the .DOTX is NOT supported with the 2007-2003 converter

NFR key for Veeam Agent for Linux

Veeam is happy to provide a free NFR license for one year.  It allows for the non‑production use and valid for five workstations and two servers. Veeam Agent for Linux is a simple backup tool for your Linux installations, both on‑premises and in the public cloud.

It's not a .doCX file. It's a template .doTX.

I've just installed the converter and am unable to open it. So i assume it's not supported

Greetings LFC1980 !

You cannot open Office Word 2007 template files that were saved in .dotx or .dotm format with the Compatibility Pack.

Reference: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word/HA100444731033.aspx under Install Compatiblity Pack subtopic.

Best wishes, war1

You can convert docx and dotx files to RTF/PDF format with a freeware app called NW Docx Converter

http://www.nativewinds.montana.com/software/docx2rtf.html

There are a couple other apps out there as well, but this one is simple, straight forward and portable so you can drop it onto your IT USB keydrive for use anywhere.

Hope this helps.
