    Importing ai files into Fireworks 8

    Samplecraze

      Hi,

       

      I have searched the forums but no joy re the problem I am having.

       

      I had a few logos designed by a company and they sent the files to me in .ai extension.

      I do not have Adobe Illustrator. I have Dreamweaver and Fireworks 8.

       

      Every time I try to import an ai file into Fireworks I get the following error message:

      'Could not import the file. Please save your files in Illustrator 8 format.'

       

      I can open the ai file within the Fireworks 8 tutorial about the Townsend Cafe banner design but not this ai file.

       

      Is this a version issue or something else and is there a workaround?

       

      Thank you for your time

       

      Eddie
