I have older mindmanager-files I would like to open (version 2002, or X5?). Earliest from 2003. I am using MM17, but get an error-message when I try to open the old files. Is there any way to get around this issue? Regards

Download an older version. I believe 2012 will do. Save as mmap instead of .mmp and you should be ok.

Lars, it depends on the type of error message you're receiving. Also, 2012 files have a different file extension and will not be selectable to open in current versions of MindManager (I think versions X5 and 6 had an 2002-import plugin which was removed in later versions) so it looks like you're talking about a .mmap file which is for versions X5 and up.

If you want me to have a look, could you please send the file to ?
