I have many maps from previous versions of MindManager which I now cannot open in version 2012. Also note I am operating on Window 7.

The error I receive when I try to open up the old maps is in in the attachment.

All maps after and including MindManager X5 should work with MindManger 2012. And it should open .mmp files from previous versions and convert them to .mmap files. Do your files have these file extensions?

All my map files (50+) now have the mmap file extension. But the majority of them will not open in MM2012.

You could try opening them in an earlier version of MindManager e.g. 6 or 7 and seeing if that works.

You can download a trial from here:

If you install this on the PC with MindManager 2012, the old version will have control of all the exports and interfaces. Run Repair of MindManager 2012 in Control Panel to restore the situation after your test.

Alternatively send me a .mmp file and I will try it in some different versions of MindManager. andrew@cabre.co.uk
