I am about to get tomatoes thrown at me, but I don't know what else to do. I began my career with FreeHand 8, then upgraded to 9 then MX.
After losing everything, I can not find a way to obtain a legal copy of FreeHand 9 or MX for my own, ome machine use. I truly need help, please.
Moved to The Lounge forum.
I'd be careful about downloading from untrusted websites. You don't know what you might be getting yourself into.
Inkscape is in active development.
Affinity Designer is allegedly able to open Freehand MX files. I've never tried it.
