How iSpring Suite 9 treats courses made with earlier versions


Please note that a course opened in iSpring Suite 9 or created there from scratch won’t function in iSpring Suite 8. When you open an old iSpring course in iSpring Suite 9, a backup copy of it will be automatically created, so you can always get back to the backup copy if something goes wrong.

How a course’s backup copy is created

Open your course in PowerPoint and go to the iSpring Suite 9 tab. When you click on any of the tab’s options (other than the Information options), a popup window prompting you to update your project will appear.

To create a backup copy, click Upgrade Project.

As a result, you’ll get a zip archive titled “(Backup) the presentation name”. The backup copy will be saved in the same folder as the original project files.

After a backup copy is created, the update process will start to make your course work correctly in iSpring Suite 9.

When your course is updated, you’ll be able to work with it in iSpring Suite 9. If you need to work with the course in iSpring Suite 8, you can go back to the backup copy, unzip the archive, and open the old course in PowerPoint.
