I'm able to obtain the URL to a specific version of a file. I would like to submit that URL to WAS to convert. However, WAS throws an exception:

List does not exist. The page you selected contains a list that does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user.

My sample url is: http://win-7v2cj24h9bk:31835/_vti_history/1024/Lists/Docs/test/AFI-Doc1.docx

However, when I submit this url, WAS works just fine: http://win-7v2cj24h9bk:31835/Lists/Docs/test/AFI-Doc1.docx

Thank you for any assistance anyone can offer.

I'm not entirely familiar with WAS, but based on that test, I'd say that the past version needs to first be published as a major varsion then pushed to WAS.

Thank you PirateEric. The specific example I have is the latest published version. The current version is 2.1 which is the second url that works. – Betty Jun 20 '11 at 20:58
