open old SE files with current SE ST5 Version Trail?

N/A
Hello!

I've tried to open *.par and *.dft files which are appr. 4 years old and I doesn't know from which version of SE.
I got a warning with following information:

The file you want to use was saved in a format which is not compatible with current used SE-Product.


Is there a way how to open that files?


Many thanks in advance!

Current versions of SE can most definetely open older versions, so that's not the issue. The message you are seeing is most likely the result of the files being created in a restricted license such as an academic license or the 45 day trial may be restricted from opening files created with a commercial license.
Where do these older files come from?

Thanks,
