When I tried opening Scrivener today a dialogue box popped up to tell me that my current project was not compatible with this version of Scrivener. I don’t remember anything that could have caused this. The last time I exited the program yesterday was by shutting down the computer, I think. Is there any way I can make the file work again? I have a back-up that works, but it’s from last month…
Probably the version.txt file got corrupted, which is an easy fix.
- In File Explorer, open your project’s .scriv folder, then open the Files folder
- Open the “version.txt” file there in a plain-text editor (e.g. Notepad)
- In the editor, select all, type “16” (no quotes), then save
Then try opening the project again in Scrivener.
Thank God, it works. (And thank YOU)
