Clarisdraw *.cdd files in XP

  Brucemac 17:24 23 Dec 2005

I have several old files drawn in Clarisdraw 1.0 originally a Mac program but I have a windows version. Unfortunately, installing the Clarisdraw on my Win XP Home PC does not seem to open the old *.cdd files - any ideas. The files will not open in anything else either.

It's a long, long time since I last used Claris Draw - and that was only on a Mac - but it sounds like the answer is in your question. It is understandable that the Windows version will not open the Mac files - the whole thing is so differently coded. One of the few exceptions to that would be MS Office for Mac, which can - I think - open and save files in both formats. Your only hope is to look at the Claris website - if there is one - and see if it has any of the kind of plug-ins that MS Office has to use for alternative file types.
