Opening old project

I’m using Scrivener for Windows and trying to open some fairly old projects developed on the Mac version. My old .scriv files are seen as folders on my Windows laptop and there’re no .scrivx files in the folders that Scrivener can open. How can I get these projects into Scrivener and access them again?

Someone please correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t believe that the Windows version of Scrivener can convert the Mac V1 project format, as it never supported it (the conversion was done specifically to make compatibility between Mac and Windows versions more streamlined, if I’m not mistaken).

You’re going to have to find a Mac somewhere, download the trial version of Scrivener there, and open all of your old projects on that computer, which will convert them. The converted copies will open in Scrivener for Windows. If the projects aren’t too big, you can probably fit a copy of Scrivener and your old projects onto a thumb drive.

Thanks @rdale. I’ve still got the old Macbook. Was hoping not to have to boot it up but will have a go.

You are not wrong, sir.
