Importing a show file created in version 6 while in 5

Postby robcharles » Sat Jan 12, 2019 12:38 pm

Hi There,
Does anyone know if it is possible to open a show file created in version 6 while running version 5?
I have received an XML show file that cannot be read along with a PBB bundle pack with content.
Thanks

Hi,

there is no guaranteed downwards compatibility. So the answer is: I might work, but in most cases it will not.
The reason is pretty simple, new Version have new features and thoses features need to be saved in the Showfile.
An old Version 5 does not know what to do with the new features and might even misinterpret the saved data or just reject the showfile as not valid.
Sorry.
Version 5 is also quite old, last version 5 was released in Dez 2016. That is over 2 years ago.
