7.1i CORE Generator - Opening and/or converting pre-7.1i COREGen project files in CORE Generator 7.1i or later

Description

Keywords: cgp, conversion, migrate, open, format, coregen.prj

How do I open an existing CORE Generator project, created with version 6.3i or earlier, using CORE Generator 7.1i?

Solution

Pre-7.1i "coregen.prj" files can be opened in CORE Generator 7.xi and later versions. However, when selecting File -> Open Project, the Open Project window allows you to select only *.cgp as the File of Type: value.

In the File Name field, type *.prj, then browse to the correct directory and select the "coregen.prj" file.

The file is automatically converted to the new CORE Generator Project (.cgp) file format. The default project file name will be "coregen.cgp." Select File -> Save Project As ... to save the project with the prefix you choose (e.g., my_cool_design.cgp).
