I have a vault with  folder hierarchy with  different types of documents in it   ( Under Root folder it can have Folder1, Folder2....... Under Folder1 it can have Folder1_1, Folder1_2 ....

I have many .doc files inside the vault .  Because of some issues all the .doc files need to be converted to .docx format ( Word 2013)

Is there a utility to batch convert from .doc to .docx ?  ( The folders may have other types of files in it, like excel or pdf . It need to be left as it is)

I downloaded some BatchDocxConverter . But never worked in Windows 7  
 Other option I have is writing a small utility (Macro or .net) .   But Is there a standard proven free one for this ?
