The new version 1.4 does not recognize / open old File projects (.ifp),
made with ver. 1.3.
"" The Project file is not compatible with this Version of InstallForge!""

Anyone know anything?
I hope there is a solution.

Thanks :roll:

yes, there is a simple solution. Just open the project file with any text editor and change ProjectFileVersion to 1.1.

The workaround works for me.

For the next version I strongly suggest that you make it retro-compatible. I only saw this workaround after I recreated my entire project. :roll:
