    PWI files are not opening in Windows 7

    I have Dell Laptop which is powered by Windows 7. I have some files in it which is in .pwi format. When I tried to open it, the file is not responding for me. The PPC device stores documents in .pwi format. Any ideas to open these documents on my Laptop. The .pwi files I have on my Laptop are created in plain text. i.e.,Notepad. I have checked a lot of online groups but have not found anything that works. Can anyone help me by giving suitable solution for this problem.

    Friend,
    Some PWI files can be opened on a PC with Microsoft Word.
    However, the ink data may not display correctly.
    Microsoft OneNote 2003 can read handwritten notes and text in PWI files.
    Some older versions of Microsoft Works can open Pocket Word documents, including Works 7.0.

    Dear friend,

    The .pwi files are created for pocket Word documents. Microsoft outlooks Notes can be used to view these files. If you are facing problem with opening these file you can use Microsoft OneNote 2003, which can read text in these files properly without any problem while displaying the ink data. Also check whether these files are not corrupted. You can also use following programs to open them: Microsoft OneNote 2013, Microsoft Outlook 2013, Microsoft Word 2013, Microsoft Works.

    Thanks!

    Dear Friend ...


    Follow the below steps carefully


    First you open Word ... click FILE ... Go to the OPEN

    Then Browse to the folder containing the PWI file ... then select the " All files(*.*) " from the file type Drop Down


    Double click the PWI file to open it


    That is it

    If you want to convert it to the WORD Document .. click FILE ... go to the SAVE AS option

    Make sure the file type Word Document ( .docx ) is selected



    VERY GOOD LUCK

    Well dear i think these files are not supported by your system.for it you have to install a pwi reader in your device and then you will be able to read those files.
    You should connect your pc to the internet and then download any pwi reader.after downloading that locate that in your system and then install that.
    Now open the reader and there open the file and it will be opened.thank you

    Re: PWI files are not opening in Windows 7

    The .PWI type files are not opening in your Windows 7 system because,

    1. the file type registration is missing in the registry,
    2. the host application to run .PWI files is missing.

    Log into www.open-file.com/file-extention-pwl.html, there will be a free registry scanner, download , install and scan the registry. it has option to Fix the problem.

    Fix it and the .PWI files will run.
