Symbolt created in a new release of Creo

I am trying to open a custom weld symbol and I am receiving the following error:

   File G:\Engineering\PROE_DATA\A_A_Proengineer\fillet_2line.sym was created in a newer release of Creo Elements/Pro.

   Error reading symbol file. Symbol not retrieved.

I have Creo2 and Creo3 on my computer, but isolated.

As you can see, the symbol hasn't changed since 1/7/2013 and I used it up till a month ago. Any thoughts out there?

Thanks,

Dale

Open the symbol in notepad or some other text editor.  The version it was last saved in will be clearly displayed.

Not sure how this happened, but:

Re: Symbolt created in a new release of Creo

I'd try creating a new symbol in WF5 and copying that line from the WF5 symbol into the other symbol you are trying to use.  Make a copy first so you don't jack up the original.

Worst that can happen is that it'll corrupt the symbol and you're back where you started.

When did Creo 2, M030 come out?

Some semi-useful thoughts:

You might be able to locate an earlier version of your symbol, perhaps on another computer or a sym.1 where this is sym.2.

Symbol files don't have history to say who changed it, but in hunting down why the symbol was modified, you might have some luck looking at the file timestamp, and thinking who would have been on that computer then, perhaps figuring that by locating other Creo files they'd have made at the same time.
