Issue Details

I have a schematic that was created in Multisim Full or Power Pro edition. Can I open it in Multisim Base edition?

Solution

Multisim Base edition will open and work with schematics created in Multisim Full or Power Pro edition.

In general any lower tiered Multisim edition will open and work with schematics created in higher tiered editions. Multisim versions are also backwards compatible, so as long as the version used is identical or later than the version the schematic was created in, it will open the schematic.

For example Multisim Base version 14.1 will open and work with schematics created in Multisim Power Pro 13.

Additional Information

One particular difference between editions is the element count of the built in component database. For a comparison of the component databases included in the available Multisim editions please refer to the NI Multisim Components and Models page.
