Star(T) Edition 2021 and sample project files


I have just returned to using CAD from a 20 odd years hiatus as I'm finding it more and more difficult and time consuming to wait for consultants to prepare rudimentary drawings for me. The last Archicad version I used was version 6 or 7 (can't remember) but needless to say, that was a long time ago.

So I've started my new Archicad journey with Archicad Start Edition 2021, and I've enrolled in the Archicad Basic course. Unfortunately, none of the sample project files can be opened by Start Edition as they are in newer Archicad full versions.

Is there a repository of sample project files that I can open with Start Edition 2021, or a file converter that I could use so I can make use of the course sample project files?

Thank you in advance for any help offered.

I assume the Basic Course you mentioned is this one:

This is the converted file that can be opened with Start Edition 2021:

Please let me know if I can help with anything else!
