I am having trouble opening the attached file with my current CorelDRAW 10 version. I am getting an error when I try to open up this old file with old data for 2008. Can't attach. This file was created on Illustrator CS2 and saved as a .CDR File (so that I can open it if I need to using Corel 10 or newer version 12 so that I can adjust the graphics). When I try to open this file using Corel 10 or 12 I just can't (see attached error message) and I can't even open it to convert it. Why do you think I have trouble opening this? Is it a setting, what filter is presenting this issue, or is it that this file Just can't be opened any longer?

You have used a local path from your computer to attach the picture. Unfortuantely, it doesn't work this way because you will need to host the image on an online image hosting website. You can use ImGur for this operation.

Based on my knowledge, I can say that Illustrator doesn't open all the CDR files. Try to open the file in Illustrator CS2 and then export it to PDF. You will have the possibility of opening the file in every Illustrator.

Note: Always save a backup copy of the files in Illustrator to AI. This way you will have the source file to export it to another format when needed.
