Conversion of .max files (Paperport)

Post by mjmjcm »

I have several .max files that are the result of scanning files several years ago with a Paperport scanner. They are primarily genealogy files of documents and photographs. I would like to convert these into files that are of use today (.jpg or .pdf, etc) and I no longer have the Paperport scanner and software. Is this a possibility with XnView software or, if not, can you advise me where to go and how to do it. Thanks in advance, Mike

XnView doesn't support this format, but Visioneer and Xerox provide a free viewer.
