.AWD Files will not open in win 2k.

By jbowman ·
When a fax comes into my win98 computer, it arives as an e-mail attchment called XXX.awd.
This file always opened in the windows Imaging program, I can also get them to open in Iexplorer. I then read the fax and fwd it to the person it belongs to.
We just got our first win2k pc, and it can't seem to open the .AWD files. I've tried Imaging, Iexplorer, Word, Wordpad, and all the rest. They all say the file type isn't supported. Any ideas?

I can't say that I've ever worked with .awd files, but I do have about 8 months worth of experience on Windows 2000. If you can e-mail me one of the files in question, I'll see what I can come up with. I can be reached during the day at grant@coolcall.com

Thanks

AWD extension is a faxview document. Open it with faxview.exe (in Win 95). You can try copying the faxview.exe file to your windows 2000 computer and see if it will work.

I would be more inclined to use Winfax Pro.

This software is one hundred percent more reliable and it work in 95 98 nt 2000 with some great advanced features.
