I have downloaded and installed Archicad as a trial version to assess it
and have been given a project file by somebody else .

When I try to open it , appears there is a LOCK on it as it was created by
another TRIAL version.

Does anybody have any experience of this ?

Is it possible to open the "Locked" project with a FULL or STUDENT version,
save it out so that I can open it?

Cheers Simon

Maybe you tried to open the file with the FULL version on another computer. Try to open it with the FULL version on the same computer you used the Trial version.
