    Director 4.0

    KC9d
      I am trying to open an old Director 4 file. The most recent version of Director says it's too old to open - does any one know how I can access this old file?

          you need to open and resave the file with director 5 (or 6...?)
          If you haven't send me a private message and I can do that for you, if you want.

            Hello, thanks for the advice. I don't have Director 5 or 6 ( I downloaded the new Director as a 30 day trial in an attempt to open this file that was created about 10 years ago!) How would I send my Director 4 stuff to you - I think it's quite big. Thanks for your help, Kathryn

              Hi Kathryn,

              Yes, the previous reply is correct. The current version, which is is version 10, is
              too far ahead of version 4 for the files to be compatible. Perhaps if you have
              Director 7, you may be able to update with that vesrion, then you can update again
              from the version 7 resaved files. I happen to have Director 7 trial versions. Are
              you Windows or Mac? Email me offlist d.utian@unsw.edu.au and I' can arrange an area
              for you to download Director 7 trial.

              regards

                I think you have to use version 5 first then 6 or 7.
