We have some files that were originally created in 12.7. They have since been saved in version 13.43. We would like to revert back to 12.7, since we're running into some problems in 13.43. Is there a way to get 12.7 to open these 13.43 files?

Thanks

Steve

Hello Steve

There isn't a way for a previous full release to read a file from a future release. At each full release, the file database structure is modified to accommodate enhancements. It is possible to pass dumb Part Object Models to any earlier release by exporting them using the VX VXN format.

Very sorry to hear that you are running into problems in v13.43. If you contact your Reseller's Technical Support, they will be able to find out if the problems you are experiencing are known about by VX Corp. If they are known problems, then they could be fixed in the next release which is not too far away. There may be work-arounds available too. If they are hitherto unknown problems, then clearly VX Corp needs to know asap so that a fix can be applied.
