I am looking for the software which I had in Win98 Se, but not available in XP. I have two documents in that format which i need to print. I have looked at a number of file type converters but none apply to this file type.

Microsoft Picture It - File extension .mix

After a quick search I have come across two possibilities. Both have had mixed reviews as to working for some but not others.

1)If you have MS Office installed then open Word. Select insert image. Then choose the .mix file.

2)Make a copy of the file and change the extension to .jpg. I am seriously doubting this will work. <_< That is why I suggest you do it with a copy of the original. In case it corrupts the image you still have the original intact.

I`m still looking should one of these two not work for you.

Doing some research I read that Microsoft Digital Image Starter Edition 2006 can convert mix files to jpeg.

Specs say the program works with 98.
Its a 60 day trial but all you really want to do is to convert the file to a more common format like jpeg.

Edit: IE6 is required

In the beginning there was the command line.

If you have MS Office then there is Microsoft Photo Editor that you have to select when you install Office. If add it if you still have the Office CD then you goto Add/Remove Programs and uninstall Office then you will see options to add other options.

If you don't have Office then you can download Microsoft Photo Editor 3.01 but it does work the same as the original as you can't open all picture types.

I've used Microsoft Photo Editor for many years and I still do on my WinXP and Vista its the best and quickest photo editor going. :wink:

Thank you all, for your responses.I don't mean to have other people do my research for me, but I did not get any of the responses mentioned in the replies, when I searched.

The MS Digital Starter Edition -2006 Did the job. Got the images converted to jpeg. The APP installed under Windows XP, using IE8, so I assume the comment Re: IE6, means, IE6 & above.

Thank you again, Gentlemen !
