Adobe Illustrator – Can’t Open a File From a Newer Version


This has happened to me twice in the last month, so here is a free solution.

I’m trying to get a newer Illustrator EPS file to open in my CS3 Version.

  1. Start Adobe Illustrator CS3.
  2. File – New.
  3. Select – Drag and Drop your newer Illustrator EPS file  into Illustrator.
  4. Now you can do a Save As and save your file in your older Illustrator version.

Here’s a YouTube video with the solution.
