How to open a TFP17 drawing on TFP15

Hi
I have recently purchased and downloaded TFP17 on my home computer.
I have TFP15 purchased and downloaded on my work computer.
I have designed a floorplan on TFP17 and emailed the file to my office computer so I can print on larger paper.
The TFP15 in my office will not allow me to open the file.
Can anyone advise if there is a work around that will allow me to do this.
Thanks

Hi Dannymac,

Although the share the TFP name, TFP 15 and TFP 17 are two different programs, created by different developers, with different capabilities, file formats and UI.
The TFP 15 file format is .bld and the TFP 17 file format is .pro, therefore, TFP 15 doesn't open TFP 17 files and vice-versa.

A workaround => prepare the files for printing as PDF files => email the PDF files to you office in order to print files.
I've a free tutorial about printing in my website http://www.punchhelpers.com/printing_punch.htm

Hope this helps  :)
