Sudden Compatibility Issues

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.

  1. In File Explorer, open your project’s .scriv folder, then open the Files folder
  2. Open the “version.txt” file there in a plain-text editor (e.g. Notepad)
  3. 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) :smiley:
