I normally use the latest beta, but as the beta is expired, I had to go back to the latest official release 1308. Now when I want to save my file, it only allows me to save the files by default as .vc3 file. Which is for ViaCad v8. Even for newly created files. I don't know if it is my computer or everybody with a 1308 release experiences this problem.

I checked the settings, but can't see a setting where you can choose how to save it. I thought this didn't even existed and always saves it as .vcp file.

.vcp is the file extension for ViaCAD Pro 5,6,7,8,9,10
.vc3 is the file extension for ViaCAD 2D3D 5,6,7,8,9,10

The beta is ViaCAD Pro and will use the .vcp extensions. If your 1308 build is ViaCAD 2D3D then the correct file extension is .vc3

All v10 products read the same file format. If you need to read a v10 file into v9 do an export to v9 from v10.

FX 10 is the next upcoming beta.
