Please refer to the technical documentation for DocuWare 7.
The dwx file replaces the XML file from DocuWare 7 onward. You can inspect the structure of the dwx file. First of all copy the file from the storage location. You should not under any circumstances attempt to open a dwx file "in situ".
The dwx file is a zip file so you can extract the components with file explorer.
The metadata XML's are found in the folder structure "Document_nn \ Version_nn".
