How to update from version 17.2.2555 to 20.1.228

I need to read a file produced by another designer but I can’t load it as the system says I need to update my 17.2.2555 version to version 20.1.228. However my free version says I’m using the latest update when I try to update using the HELP >> CHECK FOR UPDATE on main menu. Is there anyway I can read the file using my version please.

You can download the latest paid version from here, and probably you can use 30 days trial:

Or you can use the online version:

Yup, this is the way. Just open it up in the free web app. It’s by far the easiest solution for viewing/exporting a newer file.

There is this extension:

It would allow your 2017 to open files from 2020. It actually converts the file to be a 2017 version.

THank you guys thats very helpful and I can now read the file
