How to convert worksheets created in earlier versions of Mathcad to Mathcad Prime?

Issue:

  • How to convert Mathcad worksheets created in earlier versions ?
  • Steps to convert worksheets created in older releases (Mathcad 15.0 and earlier)
  • Cannot open legacy worksheets
  • Unable to open old Mathcad *.xmcd, *xmcdz, *.mcd, *.xmct, *.mct files

Cause:

  • Mathcad Prime is not downward compatible to Mathcad by nature
  • The converter program available with Mathcad Prime uses installed Mathcad capabilities

Resolution:

  • Mathcad 15 supports formats .xmcd, .xmcdz, .mcd (Worksheet), .xmct, .mct (Template) and .hbk (Mathcad Book)
  • Mathcad Prime supports formats .mcdx (Worksheet) and .mctx (Template)
  • XMCD, MCD Converter shipped with Mathcad Prime converts from Mathcad 15 and prior to Mathcad Prime supported format 1.Download Mathcad 15.0 datecode M010 or later.

Install Mathcad 15.0 M010 or higher on the same machine as the Mathcad Prime XMCD, MCD Converter. Your Mathcad Prime license will work for it as well, no additional license required.

 

Steps to convert legacy Mathcad worksheets to Mathcad Prime:
1. Start XMCD, MCD converter

  • Mathcad Prime > Input/Output > XMCD, MCD Converter
