Hmmm so from what I am gathering is that I cannot open my Archicad 12 educational files in Archicad 13. Archicad 13 educational is not available yet - so I'm stuck in 12 educational? I apologize if I am missing the obvious....

Yes you can! See my previous post.

Does this has anything to do with TeamWork2?

You should open a new thread, but to be clear YOU CAN OPEN EDUCATIONAL AC12 FILES in AC13 Commercial. You CAN NOT copy/paste between an EDU and a Commercial Version which apparently is what you are trying to do.

Based on what you wrote, close the AC12 file running in AC12 Educational open AC13 and open the file, AC will give you the warning that it is switching to Educational and that's it.

To repeat again.

You cannot CONVERT from EDU to Commercial, nor copy/paste between them, link files or modules.

You can OPEN EDU in Commercial but it will switch the Commercial to EDU as long as the file is open. For this to work you need your USB Dongle even though the EDU is controlled by a serial number.
