Newer software can open files created from older versions unless it is a REALLY old version like 1.0

HOW FAR FOWARD OR BACKWARDS FROM V6

With V6 you can open files as far back as V1.5, and as far forward a V6

BTW, I was able to open files as far back as V1.5 with Aspire V9.

You must be asking about Vcarve as I don't believe there was an Aspire V6, think it went straight from V4.5 to V8 which brought both Aspire & Vcarve inline with each other version number wise.

Not sure how the vcarve versions work in relation to Aspire prior to V8 so can't say how far back V6 of vcarve would be able to import files, there is no forward compatibility at all so you wouldn't be able to open any files created on a version latter than V6 :lol: :lol:
