    I recently downloaded the free ArcGIS 10 60 day trial for evaluation.  I was able to use the trial for one week and it stopped working on my computer due to some technicalities...

    I then had to re-install my 9.3.1 license.  When I came to open any map that I had worked on in Version 10, I could not access them as they were opened with a newer version.

    All versions should be made compatible to facilitate data sharing and avoid the above situation (or at least carefully warn the client).  There are a few maps that I will have to recreate which will be very time consuming.  Luckily, I did not have 60 days worth of work saved...This would have been a catastrophy.  Not everybody has budget on demand.

    I appreciate your time.
