With the release of PLAXIS 2D CONNECT Edition V20 Update 2, we reintroduced the ability to convert older files from PLAXIS with our CONNECT Edition. This means that older PLAXIS files with the *.P2D can directly be converted to PLAXIS 2D CONNECT Edition V20 Update 2 right from the Input program!This includes files last saved in PLAXIS 2D 2010, 2D 2011, 2D 2012 and PLAXIS 2D Classic, all with the file extension *.P2D.See also Video: PLAXIS 2D Classic Converter for CONNECT

The procedure of converting projects created with PLAXIS 2D Classic, PLAXS 2D 2012 or an earlier version (with extension .P2D) for our legacy versions (PLAXIS 2D 2019 and older) can only be done with PLAXIS 2D AE. Since it is inconvenient to constantly switch between installed versions, you may use this tip to have both versions (2D AE and latest legacy version of 2D) are available in your system:
