I have approximately 1000 *mus- files produced widt Finale products back to one million years ago.
Each and every year, as I update, I have to make a lot of button-pushing in order to change each and every file compatible with my new version.
That shoudn't be nessessary. Is there an easier way?

Although you can do batch processing with Finalescript to convert older files, (and possibly also with whatever native Windows scripting there is), my advice is only to convert the file if you need to open it.
Personally, I create PDFs of all my finished Finale files, so that I can print from those, without disturbing the Finale file.
