I have 14000 Freehand mx file and need to be able to open them in Illustrator cs6.... how can I convert them to ai files ... I do not have cs4 or cs5....
You can trying downloading a trial of an older version (use an FTP program if needed).
Then trying using a script such as this one to batch convert from Freehand to Illustrator.
Let us know if it helps, also may the force be with you, since Adobe is not.
