Hello,

Is your Prime 8 in "Mathcad Express" mode (the converter won't work here) or is it a full licence (or the 30-day free trial)?

 

If it's a full paid-for licence, then when you were installing it, did you check the XMCD, MCD Converter at this part of the installation?

Perhaps you need mathcad 15 installed too? - Just guessing.

As an FYI, starting in Prime 7, you don't need Mathcad 15 installed to use the convertor. (You did for Prime 6 and prior.)

Hi 

I am new and have the same issue. I have a MathCad15 file and need to use it in MathCAD 8 Prime.  The Converter on the IN/OUT tab is greyed out.  Is there something I need to install separately?  My files are too big to attach. Thanks for any help.

Full paid for version.  Thank you so much...Re-installed. Yes that worked.  Now i have a bunch of errors on the file I converted.  But this is a step up from where I was earlier.  I am new all around to this environment so I don't know how quickly I will work through these errors.  Thanks again.

HI I am also having issue with the convertor, however I do not get an option during installation to have the convertor installed. I am installing Prime 7, and it is a paid for licence through the university I work for.

I would like to fix this but below are 3 of my old files if someone can help to convert it for me or even if you are able to open the expandable sections and provide me a PDF of the pages. Thanks
