Hi, I'm having trouble opening .mif files with Trados Studio 2009.

I already converted the .fm files to .mif, but an error message saying the .mif file was created with an earlier version of Framemaker (before 8.0) appears. However, I am using the latest version (I have never used it before and just downloaded the trial version).

The original error message (in german) is:

Die ausgewählte MIF-Datei wurde mit einer früheren Version von FrameMaker (vor 8.0) erstellt und kann nicht geöffnet werden.
FrameMaker 8.0 v

Many thanks in advance!
