It is indeed. I'm still running Office 2007 on my laptop and, as you say, the default file format is DOCX. I've not come across a DOC file in years; this is a plug-in that few people will still require, I suspect.

I seem to have an issue with Wordconv.exe, it worked once and then even if I run it manually it won't convert anything and there is no output, not errors and the plugin ends with an error most likely because it cannot find the converted file to continue.

I've found more people struggling with this issue - is there any fix/resolution for that problem?

Solution is to save a .docx and use Calibre to convert the .docx file.

Yes, that's a solution for individual files. Not for 500 .doc files since that is then a very annoying process where I was hoping to get the help of the plugin.

have you tried rebooting? Have you looked at what's running at system startup since the last time you ran this plugin? Have you tried safe mode?

I've tried all the following:
- calibre restart
- clean calibre installation
- reboot
- different versions of wordconv.exe (2007, 2016)
- task manager to see if there may be a stuck process

It seems that there is no clear explanation as to why the wordconv does not do anything at all.

Found the problem. Most of the files that I've got had wrong names and had an extension of .doc instead of .docx therefore the plugin could not convert those for a good reason. The one file that worked was a correct .doc file which worked fine.

I've now fixed the file names and it seems to be working fine.

Thanks for the help!
