With Pointwise's Open command, you can open any Pointwise project file (.pw) created in your current or previous Pointwise versions. Note that
Pointwise cannot open files created with a version of Pointwise newer than yours.
Note that you can also open a native Pointwise project file by simply dragging and dropping the (.pw) file of interest into the Display window.
A Pointwise project file contains all the information pertinent to your current project such as the database entities (if any), grid entities (if any), entity
display attributes, layer settings, view, defaults, and tolerances.
