I have created mapbasic codes using 10.5 version.

Now I have to run in a lower version (9.1)

Please anyone help me how to do this..

How to copy paste the program codes from 10.5 version to 9.1 version?

Thanks, Jagan

According to research I found that you need to recompile the code in an older version of MapBasic (v9.0 or earlier), no other way around it. – Sunil Jan 23 '13 at 12:07

If you have not used any new MapBasic function above version 9.1, you could try and open the MBX in a text editor. Change the number in the second line: !Version 1005 to !Version 910

Note that if you try this you should make a backup of the original file first, and use a more sophisticated text editor than Windows Notepad which will corrupt the file on saving. Notepad++ will save the edited file correctly. – Andy Harfoot Jul 28 '15 at 11:09
