How do I convert a word pro file (*.lwp) to something that MS-word understands?

I have recieved a word pro file from someone. Alas, I can't read it neither find any utility that can.
I really need to get at the contents of the file quickly. I have of course asked the person for a copy of the file in a more common format, but this could take forever. And we wantss it, precious, we wantsss it.

I've used this in the past open some unusual formats in my exclusively MS environment.

Good luck

1) Go to eBay and buy a copy of Lotus Suite, real cheap.

If you're in a hurry:

2) QuickView Plus will let you read the file, and it offers a trial version.

Downloaded QuickView Plus. It works fine, and even lets you copy the text to clipboard.
yclipse, you saved the day. Thanks!
