Cannot open the .mds file because it is not a valid project suite or project file

Dear Forum,

 

We have developed a TC framework using V12.

 

However, we have to migrate our machines and we can only have V11 on the new machines.

 

And now we cannot open the TC framework developed before.

 

Do we know if it is related to TC version or the migration to new machines?

 

Thanks and Regards,

Sara

It's related to version.  Once a project is converted to a major version (like from 11 to 12), you cannot back-port it to an earlier version.

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.
