# Alternative software for processing Molden files?

I am trying to salvage old data, and one of my output files is in Molden format.

2. Is there another way to access Molden format files?

Thank you very much.

• Even though ChemCraft does not open .molden files, it is able to open .wfn files. So if using ChemCraft (or any other .wfn-compatible software that can't read .molden files) is imperative, my answer might be helpful. Jan 20 '17 at 19:11
In case you're OK with converting, Molden2AIM may be a good alternative. It is able to convert .molden files into .wfn files which are easier to handle in my opinion (the software actually does a bit more than just that, such as generating .47 files for NBO analysis).
If your .molden files were generated by ORCA, you may also try an automated script that handles the details of using Molden2AIM for you.
