E-Prime 3.0 provides the user the ability to upgrade experiments that were originally designed in E-Prime 1.x and E-Prime 2.0 (Professional and Standard) to the new .es3 experiment file format.
The following experiment file formats can be upgraded to the current .es3 format:
- .es files created in E-Prime 1.2
- .es2 files created in E-Prime 126.96.36.199
- .es2 files created in E-Prime 188.8.131.52, E-Prime 184.108.40.2063, E-Prime 220.127.116.116
When loading an .es or .es2 file into E-Prime 3.0, the system will notify you that the experiment is from an older version of E-Prime and requires upgrading:
It should be noted that upgrading the experiment to the new .es3 format cannot be undone. However, the original .es or .es2 file still preserved. Clicking 'No' simply cancels the upgrade operation.
Upgraded experiment files will maintain the original file's Toolbox Defaults.
Although there are several new defaults in E-Prime 3, the ONLY changes that are enabled upon upgrading .es or .es2 files to the new .es3 format is the addition of two new devices: the ButtonDevice and ScriptDevice.
Experiments created in E-Prime 3.0 (.es3 files) can not be opened in E-Prime 2.0. This is because E-Prime 3.0 has many new features not supported in E-Prime 2.0.
