Please note that a course opened in iSpring Suite 9 or created there from scratch won’t function in iSpring Suite 8. When you open an old iSpring course in iSpring Suite 9, a backup copy of it will be automatically created, so you can always get back to the backup copy if something goes wrong.

How to create a backup copy of a course

Open your course in PowerPoint and go to the iSpring Suite 9 tab. When you click on any of the tab’s options (other than the Information options), a popup window prompting you to update your project will appear.

After clicking on the Update project button, the process of creating a backup copy of the course will start.

As a result, you will receive a new .zip archive, which will be called "(Backup) %Presentation_Name%". The backup is saved in the same folder as the original project.

Immediately after the backup copy is created, the update process will start to make your course work correctly in iSpring Suite 9.

When your course is updated, you’ll be able to work with it in iSpring Suite 9. If you need to work with the course in iSpring Suite 8, you can go back to the backup copy, unzip the archive, and open the old course in PowerPoint.
