.ai 9 to older

How do I convert Adobe Illustrator .9 .ai files into an older version for one of my very expensive but older works programs? Using XP, I have Coral Draw 12 which will not handle v9. I am willing to upgrade this to version that still works with XP, if really required. I don’t want to upgrade PC now, in 18 months the whole requirement will be gone, and a modern portable will be the upgrade. Thank you

This might be of use to see them: ClickHere "a little trick: you can rename an AI file from SampleArtFile.ai to SampleArtFile.pdf and open it in the PDF viewer of your choice - like, say, Foxit Reader" and then it goes on to 'What if want to have them editable'

Worked a treat, and Foxit is a great program. Thank you
