Yes, it does. Unless you install Mathcad 15 along. For Prime versions 1 to 6, a co-installation of Mathcad 15 is required to convert.
- With a license for Prime you are also entitled to license Mathcad 15 on the same computer. You use the very same license file that you used for licensing Prime.
- While you can convert 'real' mathcad files (.mcd, .xmcd and .xmcdz files) to Prime format, there is no conversion back.
- Prime has some advantages over 'real' Mathcad, but it also lacks sufficient features that Mathcad provides.
- You should be able to install Mathcad 15 alongside Mathcad 13 and have them both operational. Mathcad 15 can save files to Mathcad 13 format. Prime cannot save ANY file to a lower version.
- Mathcad 13 uses Maple as symbolic engine, Mathcad 14, 15 and Prime (up to version 6) have MuPad as symbolic engine. Prime 7, the latest version, has a new symbolic engine.
