I have a ai. file to need to open to to verify it's content. Can I use something else to open it instead of Adobe Illustrator ?

Have you tried Acrobat? Those files can be pdf based in which case it should be able to read them. And that exhausts my knowledge of .ai files.

english, what a awesome thing..........



It stated "it couldn't figure out the format of the file" So I guess that didn't work.


Well I will just have to send it as is and hope its the right file..


Thanks for the help....

English site for xnview
HERE is the link for xnview,and the files it will open.

It will open ai files, but you need to get GhostScript which has a link at the bottom of the page... Rhett

Where did you get the .ai file?
Was it made with Adobe Illustrator?
Do you have Adobe Illustrator and is so can you do a save-as or export into other formants?
