have you tried it with a file made on a dodgy version of VW2008?

VW2011 pops up the "illegal file" web page, but the file does not actually open

If this is still a problem please see my post.

You need to Migrate the drawing through each version.

Hi Grant

Thanks for the plug. I actually wrote a quick migration guide for those moving from the old Renderworks (pre 2011) to 2011 and above.

But there is a full Getting Started Guide for Renderworks, written by the excellent Danel Jansenson. You can download it from the Vectorworks website.

Hope that helps

No problems that I have noticed opening another designers vw2008 files.
