are older MSCAD versions able to read the 2004 version of .flx files?
I have an old old laptop with 2001 on and not really wanting to install 2004 on my new PC wondered if the flx versions MSCAD will read 'forwards'. I still have the odd call to grab data off older vesrions MSCAD.
regards Richard

MSCAD2004 can read in the older FLX files from previous versions of MSCAD (2001, 2002).
Older versions of MSCAD(2001, 2002) can not read in the 2004 FLX format as it was not in existance when the older program was written.
To get the older program to read in the newer job, it would have to be opened in 2004 and saved to an older FLX format (or a DWG format supported by the older program).
