Incompatability between versions. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been using Microsoft Streets & Trips since 2005.  I have saved virtually every trip that I have taken for archival and reference purposes.  Today, I was looking through some of my old trip folders and discovered that I cannot open the older trips with S&T 2011, even though they have the same (.ext) extension.  Is there something wrong with my version of S&T 2011, or did some idiot at Microsoft just feel like screwing the folks with older versions.  I really can't describe the frustration of not being able to open my old trip files.

    1.  Why didn't they at least have the decency to notify people to keep their old (legally paid for) versions of S&T on their computers so that they could open these files.

    2.  Why did they keep the same file extension (.ext) if there was a copatibility issue?

    3.  Is there some way of retreiving these files so that they can be opened with newer versions of S&T?
