Personal Composer (1994) for windows 3.1

Personal Composer for Windows ( http://www.pcomposer.com/ ) is a full-featured program that is used by musicians and composers around the world. It is used to write music for publication and electronic music production. A DOS version of Personal Composer was demonstrated at the first MIDI NationalAssociation of Music Merchants trade show, at Chicago, in June 1983. Personal Composer for Windows was first released in 1994. Personal Composer for Windows runs under Microsoft Windows 3.1, Win95, Win98, or WinNT. It is compatible with Microsoft's multimedia standard for recording and multi-port playback, and supports popular soundboards. It will analyze and transcribe input from any MIDI instrument and reads Standard MIDI files. Personal Composer is distributed in three levels: 8-staff, 16-staff, and 44-staff. The two lower levels have other limitations relative to the features in the 44-staff program.

I have files created by Personal Composer system/2.  Is there any way of converting them to be used with the new version of Personal Composer?  Thanks!
