Where is all legacy Mathcad stuff ( Electronic Books, Add-ons for Mathcad 8, 2000, 2001, 2001i) ?

Where is all legacy Mathcad stuff ( Electronic Books, free Add-ons for Mathcad 8, 2000, 2001, 2001i) ?

Much of it was/is loadable even by newer and current Mathcad editions !

I did not find anything here, also Google does not find anything special if I look for "Mathcad Electronics Books".

Btw, I am still using Mathcad2001i - no software activation, enough math power -, for my own internal development purpuses. It runs well on W2k and WinXP.

If an employer or project owner asks me to do something with Mathcad, I expect a current version of course :-), thats the business.

With the newer Mathcad versions, it is still possible to save in the Mathcad 2001i format (but not in Mathcad 2001 format, or older ) :-).

Sincerely

Rolf

That is not quite correct. MC11 will save back to version 6. MC13 will save back to version 2001i. MC14 and 15 will save back to version 11 (I don't recall what MC12 could do, and can't be bothered to install it just to find out)

The final question is:

How to travel from the

http://communities.ptc.com/community/mathcad

to this menu level

http://www.ptc.com/appserver/mkt/products/resource/list-books.jsp?&rccg=888&nav=5279

, by what link or series of pages with links ?

So if I press "home" on

http://www.ptc.com/appserver/mkt/products/resource/list-books.jsp?&rccg=888&nav=5279

I get to

http://communities.ptc.com/community/mathcad

but how to get back ?

I am shure that not just me has a problem with that.

Thanks in advance.

Sincerely

Rolf

I don't think you can be honest.

So if I press "home" on

http://www.ptc.com/appserver/mkt/products/resource/list-books.jsp?&rccg=888&nav=5279

I get to

http://communities.ptc.com/community/mathcad

but how to get back ?

There seems to be an error when you click 'home', which doesn't allow you to return to the previous page. To be honest I have tried clicking the 'home' link a couple of times and it only works sporadically. How about not pressing the home button, thus eliminating the need to press the back button

Sorry to say the question again, *** to the webmaster of PTC and the PTC moderatorrs ***

If I don´t use a deep link as I was told here,

how should customers go from the Matcad community main page

http://communities.ptc.com/community/mathcad

to the ressource page with the electronic books, and all the other links to the "Mathcad Resource Page" ?

There is some link "missing" AFAIK.

This is not an academic question, but a question how to use this website.

Indeed, I asked the question orignally, so that other users can "find" it.

a)

Comment

If you call

http://www.ptc.com/appserver/mkt/products/resource/list-books.jsp?&rccg=888&nav=5279

you can access all other menu items

If you call

http://www.ptc.com/appserver/mkt/products/resource/list-books.jsp

you see the SAME page, but you cannot access all other menu items, it looks as if there is no "real" contents if you click on it.

b)

Additionally, where is the Home URL of the "Mathcad LIbrary" ?

Smith Chart

http://www.ptc.com/appserver/wcms/standards/textoimgothumb.jsp?&im_dbkey=61423&icg_dbkey=888


says that it is part of the "Mathcad LIbrary",

but the given link is broken too.

http://www.ptc.com/resourcecenter/mathcad

Probably the file can be found at

Mathcad Resource Center: Mathcad Example Files

http://www.ptc.com/appserver/mkt/products/resource/list-dtav.jsp?&rccg=888&nav=5283

or do you expect to find it at another place ?

Ok I asked the webmaster about this, too, now...

See the last post in this thread:

(which does not answer your question, it just reinforces your point).

Richard, MC12 saves back to Mathcad 2001 -- I just checked.

I seldom use my copy of MC12, since MC13 seemed to be much more stable when it came out. And I continued to rely on MC13, even after MC14 came out, because MC14's print preview crash really ticked me off. I only started using MC14 when the M020 release came out and fixed the print preview crash.

Actually, the only reason I keep MC12 around now is to be able to compare its features with those of its predecessors and successors, as you are doing now.

Re: Where is all legacy Mathcad stuff ( Electronic Books, Add-ons for Mathcad 8, 2000, 2001, 2001i) ?

I use MC11, for some legacy worksheets that will not work in later versions (due to SUC, the demise of the Numerical Recipes Function Pack, and a couple of other changes that occurred going to 12), and for the Maple symbolic engine. I use MC13 only for the Maple symbolic engine when the results are too large to display in MC11, and for testing/comparison. I use MC15 (and prior to that MC14) for everything else. The only thing I would ever use MC12 or was testing/comparison, so last time I went through the long and tedious process of installing all the Mathcad versions I couldn't be bothered with 12
