    Open a Capture 16.3 .dsn in Capture 9.2 Reply
    Does anyone know of a way to open a .dsn file (version 16.3) in capture 9.2?  My understanding is the file format changed in 16.3.

    I do not have Orcad 16.3, so I cannot export the file to be read by 9.2.  I only have 9.2, and I am trying to open a 16.3 dsn file.

    You might be kidding. This works in theory and in theory, theory and practice are the same.

    In practice they are not, so it does not work.

    How about I send you a design in 16.3 and if you convert it to 9.2 I buy you lunch?
