I have a host of lwp files sprinkled across multiple folders that I would like to convert. To practice I opened a Command Prompt window and navigated to a folder. I entered the following command: D:\Applications\LibreOffice\program\soffice.exe --convert-to DOC a.lwp It does its thing very silently. No feedback, no nothing ... and no new files in the source folder, either. So....what am I doing wrong here?

Works for me like a charm (though I don't understand, why you want to convert from a deprecated file format .lwp into another deprecated file format .doc)

C:\...\Test>dir

2021-01-13  18:15    <DIR>          .
2021-01-13  18:15    <DIR>          ..
2021-01-13  18:03            22.588 Lorem.lwp
               1 File(s)         22.588 bytes

C:\...\Test>"C:\Program Files (x86)\LibreOffice\program\soffice.exe" --convert-to DOC Lorem.lwp

C:\...\Test>dir

2021-01-13  18:15    <DIR>          .
2021-01-13  18:15    <DIR>          ..
2021-01-13  18:15            15.872 Lorem.DOC

Regarding your "Answer:"

.....ECC12_9-.lpw

This doesn't look like .lwp but .lpw

I'd prefer to convert them to DOCX, but I do not believe this is an option. At least Word will open DOC files. Here is my attempt to copy what you did on a file I know LibreOffice will open ...
