It is a will program
Expert:  IT Miro replied 1 year ago.
There is a program called Kiplinger's WillPOWER. Do you see it installed?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It wasn't so I bought it and installed it but it does not use that extension. In all my research I keep finding that kamban word processor info too but he would have no reason to have it in that kind of language.

And will.isd 26mb
Expert:  IT Miro replied 1 year ago.
OK, let me check if I can find any other program that can open those file types.
Expert:  IT Miro replied 1 year ago.
Hello again! I did a thorough research on .kwp and .isd extensions (file types). For .kwp, it only mentions "Kiplinger's WillPOWER" program.For .isd, there are no known programs used to open that file type. However, please go to this page: and check if any of those files can be converted to a .doc file and opened with Word or WordPerfect. You can also try to open the original files with one of those text processors. If that doesn't work, you can try the following: 1. Start a simple text editor such as Notepad. To do that, click on the Windows Start button and then click on All Programs > Accessories > Notepad2. In an empty Notepad window, just drag-and-drop the Jay.kwp file3. Check if you can read the text, or find any meaningful word4. Do the same for the other file - will.isd That is all I can think of. I hope this helps! Regards,IT Miro
