PrintShop Print Shop Pro 23 - can it / should it be able to open version 6 files?

A friend had print shop pro 6 for years on their xp box.  moved to win 7 and couldn't get v6 to work on it.

Bought version 23 but now it doesn't recognize the .pdc and other file extensions from the version 6.  should it be backwards compatabile?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Tell her to open print shop, and close the Project picker by clicking on the X.
Click File>Open
Make sure she navigates to the folder where the file is.
Change the File type to all Files, and it should then open the file, some may not be formatted correctly.
