Ever heard of the term "forwards compatible" ? Neither have I, and that is because it is impossible to design such a program.
You made a mistake, I realize it may be frustrating but you ought to own up to your own mistakes, that is how one grows older and wiser and doesn't keep repeating mistakes. You could have simply given the file a new name, even added a single character when saving, then you would not have had this problem. You overwrote it with new data, and that leaves you in the position of needing the program that wrote the data to modify it.
You opinions to me are useless. Are you a Vectric Wizard of Shame? I am really surprised to receive this type of attack on a forum of this magnitutde-
To others: I did not come here to attack Vetric9 Just looking and learning.
Attack ? Sheesh excuse me, I thought we were all adults here.
You are the one who made your mistake public - You don't get to select who replies, and you can't expect all gentle rubs on the back.
Saying "hostage" in the post title implies criminality and is borderline slanderous, the whole episode is an error on your part, not a money making scam from Vectric.
