Information about the .mix (mix) file type

This is one of five possibilities that we have on file for the .mix file extension, follow this link to view all five possibilities.

Below is all the information we have available on file about the .mix (mix) file type.

Microsoft Picture IT! picture file. Proprietary image file format from Microsoft (meaning that they never published the file format specification). This format is no longer supported by Microsoft.

Microsoft Word 2002 (Office XP) or Word 2000 can display .MIX files, although you may have to install the "Microsoft picture it/Kodak FlashPix filter". It should then be possible to save it as another type of file or to copy it from word and paste it into something else.

For Word 97 the "Kodak FlashPix/Microsoft Picture It!" filter is hidden away in the "Valupack" folder on the Word installation cd (but only on the service release 1 cd), to install run <CD>:\ValuPack\FlashPix\FPXFLT32.exe.

Some versions of Coral Draw reportedly can open .MIX files.

Unfortunately Microsoft appears to have produced more than one version of .MIX file, so the above may work with some .MIX files but not others.

Where this is available we would like to include file format information on .mix files, as well as information on how to view or open files of type .mix. If you know of any information which we have missed then please let us know.
