How to import old file import filters in Illustrator CS. - Adobe Illustrator Windows

Hi, Due to the limitations of our CAD system we need to import DXF files in R12 version.

    Default How to import old file import filters in Illustrator CS.

    Hi,
    Due to the limitations of our CAD system we need to import DXF files
    in R12 version. Actually we are doing this with an old "beta" export filter
    that was done for Illustrator ver 7.0 that works great.

    We have been updating our Illustrator up to ver 10.0 and we could use
    this filter without any problem.

    Now we are trying Illustrator CS (Tryout version) to see if it will
    be compatible with this filter, but we could not find anyway so that
    Illustrator recognizes this old export filter.

    How can we add this export filter? Where do we have to save it?

    Thanks in Advance,
    Dani.

    Dani,

    Plugins\Illustrator Formats is the correct location - although whether it
    will work with CS, I couldn't say.

    Thanks,
    but this was the first thing I did, and it does not recognize
    that IT EXISTS an import file plugin...
