Failure to launch

Converting files to another format is a common task, but this program fails to get the job done.

Ultra Document to Text Converter promises to make it easier to convert files from one format to another, but it fails to even get off the ground.

This program's interface appears simple and user friendly upon first glance. There's a large screen for displaying selected files and file type. Along the bottom, several buttons offer help getting files, getting folders, loading lists, saving lists, clearing lists, and converting. Regardless of how simple the display appeared, we had absolutely no luck with this program. When we tried placing a Word document on the list for conversion, it failed to appear every time. Other tests with other file types that the program promised to convert netted the same results. A trip to the Help page was the final straw, as it simply provided users with a description of the product, with no information on how to operate the program.

This trial is limited to three pages, but it will only take one to see the problems with Ultra Document to Tex Converter. There are numerous other programs available that perform the tricky task of conversion with much more success than this faulty entry.
