    I recently installed AS 9.0 on a machine that has QC7 on it. If I save a new
    AS 9.0 file as a .CAD file (so that others within the organization with
    QuickCAD can read the file) and then try to open it in QuickCAD, I get an
    error stating that it is an older file version and that QC can not read it.
    If I attempt to open any SKF with QC7 I get the same error ---- older file

    I have no problems opening files (using AS 9.0) that were created in QC7.

    It seems that AS 9.0 is saving the files as a .CAD file that is not
    compatible with QC7.

    Does anybody have any insight into why this happening? Is there a

    Yes.....there is a work-around.

    File>Save As>drop down Files of type dialogue

    Then go into Windows Explorer and rename the file from an .SKF file
    extension to a .CAD will open just fine in QuickCAD 7/8.

    Dumb....I agree. Don't shoot the messenger....!!!!

    I think they changed the format so it is not backwards compatible.
