FileConvert.exe is a Windows 32 application that translates MultiGen - Paradigm Inc.  Digital Elevation Data (DED) files to National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA) Digital Terrain Elevation Data (DTED) format files.  Version 1.0 allows you to open a DED file using the File Open menu selection

Once you have selected a DED file to convert, select Convert DED->DTED to convert the file.

If you attempt to select a file that is not a DED file you will get an error message which tells you the file is not a DED file.

If you get this message just click on the OK button and select a DED file.

FileConvert places the output DTED files into a subdirectory structure based upon the Longitude of the data contained within the DED file.  The DTED files are named with the first initial of Latitude hemisphere and the Latitude.
