Actrix 2000 supposedly has conversion support, but they're kinda quiet
about it.  External sources
<URL:> indicate that
they do pretty well.  Is perchance the Actrix file format known?

From the website:
"Actrix runs Visio in the background to perform the conversion"
So they do OLE too.
As for their .axd, I don't really know...

I guess using OLE to convert files is the only viable option.  Does anyone

Do you remember which company it was that offered translation?

The software is ConceptDraw. The conversion service is here:


I've had a mail exchange with them, and their file format is not open
either.  I'm trying to convince them that opening it would be a good idea,
but I doubt that I shall succeed.  It's a corporation, after all, not
intelligent people.
