Hi to all,

My friend has just purchased Adobe Illustrator 10, but she cannot open my files that are prepared with the Adobe Illustrator 9.
Seems that it is not backward compatible. Can it be??? Or is there a way around it ??

I need your advise please
Thanks

I don't know the file extention Illustrator produces but what your saying seems crazy that Adobe would do something like that

The extension used is .eps and .ai

Yes, it sound crazy, even so because Adobe Photoshop 7 is backward compatible, and it can read files prepared with older versions.

Does anyone use Illustrator 10? If so can you open files prepared with the previous version?

I have Illustrator 10 ... if you can point me towards A file made with a previous version I'll be glad to try opening it

ps... those are the extentions that are shown in v10

Thank you so much for trying this for me

She can't open them though, she gets an error message.
What do you think her problem is? Any ideas?

I just noticed...
The files are named logo.eps & logo1.eps
Do you mean to say that when you save them they save as logo.ps & logo1.ps?

I am not sure what error message she gets, I will have to ask her. She can't open the files though
Maybe she did not install it correctly and she ought to re-install... any advise? is installation straight-forward?

Thanks again for helping out

As near as I remember the install was straight forward

the error message may tell alot ...although a fresh install should do the trick

good luck
