I want to run a slx file on my MATLAB R2016b version but the file is produced on R2018b. So can anypne help to convert it for a previous version for me?
P.S. It is not a commercial file, so don't worry about it.

I have seen posted a completely different work-around, a Simulink setting that permits you to import from newer versions, more or less by turning off the error check. However, when that was done, any changes in model representation would not be applied in a backwards-compatible way; for example initializations might not be moved from their newer locations to their previous locations. Using the official export to previous version tool is more robust.

Okay, I will try to find someone to convert this file as installing this version isn't possible at all.
Thank you so much for your efforts and concern.

I used Chrome and Firefox to access MATLAB online. Each time I tried to upload
some MATLAB Simulink file I got "upload failed" error. Once, I switched into Microsoft Edge
as, the upload was succeeded.

1)Open Matlab Online from Microsoft Edge
2) Download matlab drive from mathwork website & Put the needed files to be updated in it
3) from the website , open the file & export it to previous version
Wish that help you :)
