Import Project from upgraded version

Is there a way to downgrade Project ?

So, I have another Plant using 7.9.X and we are using 7.8.5. They have sent us a .proj file that I want to import into my gateway. is there any better way of doing it ?

There be dragons! For the simplest of projects, you can sometimes change the text header of the project file to match the older version’s header. But any component in the project that has new features and new properties will choke when loaded into the old server. Potentially catastrophically. If you try this, do it on a test system of v7.8.5 first, not your production system.


Use NotePad to open the *.proj file and change …and then save
