error opening saved rld files

Post by Guy Hanson » Tue Jan 10, 2017 12:57 pm

Yes - I'm running the older version of RDWorks that came with my machine because I was concerned about compatibility.

After I create and succesfully run a file I do a save as to the hard drive on the same machine. The problem is that I cannot reopen that file to run it again. I get a file format error message - every time. Now that I'm making files worth reusing I'd like to do so.

This also means that I can't transfer files from another PC.

Should I just man up and upgrade or do you have another idea?

instead of saving as a .rld file, export as a .ai, then import that when you need to open it again?
