Can't open Freehand 8 files in Freehand MX in Jaguar - Macromedia Freehand

I have many old projects from 10 or more years ago created in very early versions of Freehand. I'm not able to get Freehand MX 11.0.1 to open them in Jaguar. I just resaved one of those projects in Freehand 8 (I don't have v.9 or 10), assuming that might solve the problem but it didn't. What is the solution to this? I may have to open many of these old files in years to come. Thanks, Sharon...

    Freehand 8 files will not open in FHMX if you drag the file on to the icon
    in the dock. However, If you use File>Open they should open fine. I can open
    files back to FH5 by this method.
