This is not something that can be "fixed".  I am not aware of any software that is 'forward' compatible - that is an older version of the software having the ability to read a file created with a newer version.  Since you know the file was created with V7.3, you will need to have at least V7.3 in order to read it.  

Why do you not want to upgrade your version of ERWIN?

the error message that you are getting is telling you everything that you need to know.

"The file is File Format v18.
This version of the application can only laod files of File Format v16 or older
please update your software."
