Yes of course. Are these files you opened before? Maybe they are academic or some other issue?

The ST6 files are academic version, but not ST7. Is It because that?

 

Thanks for answer dcstaples.

Yes. You cannot open academic version files in any commercial Solid Edge version.

If you need the files you can save them from the academic version as parasolid and then open these parasolid files in your ST7

Hi Guys,

 

Going through similar problem. Learning SE on ST7 trial trying to open ST6 files from the S. Tickoo book.

 

"..files last saved in a format incompatible with the Solid Edge product you are using...."

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi Ernesto,

 

I suspect the file[s] you're trying to open were created [or last saved] by the Student Edition of Solid Edge.

Sean,

 

Thanks for the swift response. 

That's probably it. Haven't seen a reply to my inquiry to the support team on the book's companion website, yet.

I guess the author missed stating this condition about the exercise files on their website.

 

Again, I appreciate your help.

 

Ernesto
