The file is from Mathsoft MathCad, but I want to run it in the new PTC MathCad what is the solution please answer ASAP. And are the two software same?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Mathcad and Mathcad Prime are sort of the same. Mathcad Prime is newer, but much less capable. To convert a worksheet from Mathcad to Mathcad Prime you need both Mathcad Prime and Mathcad 15 installed (your license for Prime will also work for Mathcad 15). However, since Mathcad Prime is less capable than Mathcad 15, there is no guarantee that the converted worksheet will function correctly.
Can you convert these files into .MCDX please ?
I can't download Mathcad 15 as I do not have a licence anymore and I have a demo version of Mathcad Prime.
I would like to use former files.
1. How did you (manage to) loose that license?
2. If you qualify as a 'new' user, you can download Mathcad 15 and install it for a trial period of 30 days...
You may do it yourself the next time - as user of Prime you are also entitled to use real Mathcad 15 which has to be installed for the converter to work.
Here is the converted file (Prime 6 format) - you will have to reformat it concerning line and page breaks and the display of arrays.
I see most of you have already answered the question for the conversion. I am just confirming the process in detail here.
Worksheets created in Mathcad 15.0 or older version can be converted into Mathcad Prime version using XMCD/MCD converter. When you install Mathcad Prime on your machine, converter also gets installed. Ensure to have both Mathcad 15.0 and Mathcad Prime application installed on the same machine and licensed. Single license would work for both.
You can open Mathcad Prime application click input/output tab and click XMCD/MCD converter and browse for the Mathcad 15.0 worksheet and click convert. A new file would get created in the same folder which can then be opened in Mathcad Prime application.
You can also run the XMCD/MCD conveter directly by running the XMCD/MCD converter app without opening the Mathcad Prime application.
NOTE: If you have multiple versions of Mathcad Prime application installed, then file would converted to latest version of the application installe on the machine.
For eg: if you have both Prime 5.0 and Prime 6.0 inistalled on the same system and if you use Prime 5.0 converter, even then worksheet gets converted to Prime 6.0 version only
Mathcad 15 should install without problems on a Windows 10 system. For licensing it, you can use the very same license file that you used for Prime.
See here for more information:
Be sure that you have the right prerequisites:
• Windows XP Home or Professional Edition, Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, Windows Vista, or Windows 7; Windows XP SP3, XP-x64 SP3, Vista, or Windows 7 (or later) recommended
• Windows Installer 3.0 or later
• Microsoft .NET Framework® 3.5 or later
• MSXML 4.0 SP2 Pareser and SDK (this exact version of MSXML is required)
• Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) 2.8 or later
can someone help me to convert these two files from XMCD to MCDX, please!
You should state which version of Prime you are using as otherwise, if you are not using the latest, you may end up with a converted file you can't open.
And ... it sure would help if you attach the files you want to see converted 😉
Always check your posting after posting it in a forum ...
Here are the files converted to Prime 6, without any postprocessing.
BTW, you can download MC15 (even the 3o day trial will do OK), install it and do the conversions yourself. For the rest of this year the license for Prime will also be OK for real Mathcad (MC15).
