This freeware quickly converts ANSI-code page files into Unicode. However, our tests found a stability issue under Windows 2000. Ansi2Uni's straightforward interface displays the bare minimum needed to use the application. You easily select the ANSI-code page type, browse for the file to be converted, choose the desired Unicode format, click convert, and you're done. The file converted is saved with the original filename appended with the chosen Unicode format as a suffix. Ansi2Uni worked just as smoothly when converting multiple files. The inclusion of a help file to explain ANSI and Unicode formats would have been a great boon for novices. Our tests found installation of this program in Windows 2000 machines caused an exception error, but it worked fine in Windows XP. Any level of user needing this specialized type of file converter will find this freeware well worth a download.
