    If they are really FH8 doents, FH9 will open them with File > Open.

    If you're on a PC and the files were created on a Mac, the files must have
    the .fh8 filename extension. Are you sure they're FH8 doents and not EPS
    files?

    thanks Judy, well I am not sure whether they are coming from mac but they
    have already fh8 extensions, and when I try to open them in fh9 I got an
    error of this is not a valid freehand doent. I have converted the ext. to
    eps, no luck.

    It is weird..

    thanks anyway

    Not true at all, the filename extension has nothing to do with the
    contents of the file, only Windows' ability to associate it with an
    installed application - if you show all files in the File Open dialog
    and select an extension-less FH file FreeHand will still open it, as
    long as it is a valid FreeHand file.

    If you are trying to open it by double clicking on the file, you will often
    get the error message you noted. If this is the case, try opening it by
    going to File>Open> in the program. If this doesn't work it may be a
    corrupted file.
