Best Practice - Convert Mathcad Files
Mathcad 15 and the Mathcad Prime editions do not share file type and files need to be converted from Mathcad 15 format in order to be able to be opened in Mathcad Prime.

- Mathcad license must be available
- Both Mathcad 15 and Mathcad Prime must be installed on the computer on which the conversion is performed

- Each successful conversion creates a new worksheet with extension *.mcdx in the same folder as the source file. The source file is not modified.
- An *.mcdx file cannot be converted back to a *.xmcd file.
- Users who have purchased Mathcad Prime are automatically entitled to get Mathcad 15. The same license can be used to configure Mathcad 15.

This guide describes the steps when converting a Mathcad 15 file (*.xmcd) to Mathcad Prime format (*.mcdx). Errors that can occur are presented in the end of this guide.

Note that if you are using flexnet 11.14 only one license is needed for the interactive conversion mode.
