  • I have .lwp and other smart suite files but no longer have Lotus Smart Suite to open them.
    Is there any open source software that will do the trick?
    p.s. (I really need to open the files for a project I'm currently working on especially the .lwp files so email me if you've got a suggestion/answer. jwmt2nd@yahoo.ca Thanks. W

    A. After searching the Web there doesn't seem a simple way of doing it. The only way I found was by downloading this program from Lotus for free (Lotus KeyView);

    ftp://ftp.lotus.com/pub/lotusweb/product/smartsuite/kvlot32.exe

    This will open the .lwp file, so you can then copy and paste the data into OxygenOffice.

    NEW!!! ftp://ftp.lotus.com/pub/lotusweb/product/smartsuite/

    The above address now seems to hold the file, click on Kvlotus.exe file for download.

    Another free open suite derivated from openoffice is IBM Lotus Symphony from its site you must register in order to download it.
    It can open all your  old files with the extensions: .lwp and so on.
