Hello,

I have licenced and tried to open Set of 500 ecology icons – stock vector – kaufen Sie diese Vektorgrafik und finden Sie ähnliche Vekt... , but all I get is a document with Russian text.

Any ideas why?

You need Illustrator or at least a program that can read Illustrator vector graphics. You can install the 7 day test version of Illustrator if you want to look at the file and may be export the file to a format you can use afterwards.

I have tried GIMP, AdobeReader, and an online concerter (to .JPG). I always get the same image looking like this:

This file format (*.AI) normally only can be opened with Adobe Illustrator.

Older *.AI (Illustrator 8 version) perhaps can be opened with Corel Draw.

Hi HJD,

I've verified that there is no issue with this licensed file when opened in Adobe Illustrator.

That’s a wise decision. If you have a problem with Illustrator, you may post in the Illustrator​ forum.
