Unable to open/convert 2015 Mathcad file on Prime 8

Unable to open/convert 2015 Mathcad file on Prime 8

Hi all, I have a Mathcad file created by Mathcad2015 (my best guess). Now that I'm using mathcad prime 8 (trial version), I can't open the old file. When I use the XMCD,MCD Converter button in Input/Output and link the path to the file and press "convert", the "MCDX status" says "no license" and I can't convert to open it in prime 8. Could you please help me with this. I can send you the file for your reference.

 Hi,

 

1Starting from the 7th version of Mathcad Prime you can use the built-in converter (before the installation process, it is necessary to select it among the installation components).

2. You can also attach your file here (by zipping it) so we can convert it for you.

 

Hi,

 

I actually ticked that and was able to open the converter in the prime8. Just that when I press "convert" it says "no license" as I described in the original question (also as shown below). Please see attached the files that I want to convert. Many thanks for your help converting them for me.

 

However, it would be nice to know how to convert them myself so that I can do so next time. Thank you.

You've got Prime 8 Express installed, but not applied for (and received) a license. This license is required to use the full feature set of Prime (for a period of 30 days max.)

Read here how to apply for such license: https://community.ptc.com/t5/Mathcad-Installation/How-to-Acquire-30-days-License-for-Mathcad-Prime-7-0/m-p/721613#M413

After the license expires Prime falls back to Express mode, which means: No Symbolics, programming, solve-blocks, conversion, and advanced functions such as mean and stdev...

I would convert your files, but they are not in a .ZIP archive, so I cannot access them.

 

Success!

Hi, I actually applied and got a license via email. I then used it to register mathcad already. Still don't understand why it's like that.
