Upgraded your project and forget to backup your original files, only to find out that the new version isn't working like you think. I've been there.
Now, is there a way to downgrade a project? Here's how I did it
- I copied out the sample 2014 Project in the %APPDATA% folder to my desktop
- Use a text editor (I use Notepad++) and open up all the XML files in the root of the project folder.
- Now search for this text. <ProjectVersion>7</ProjectVersion>
- Replace it with <ProjectVersion>6</ProjectVersion>
Voila, now you can open the sample project in 2013. Anyway, there are a lot more changes in the xml file than you think. So unless it is critical, do not use this method. And always remember to backup. Speaking of backup, there isn't a standard procedure to backup a project. What if the database is corrupted? What if I want to restore a drawing that I did the day before? Guess I will discuss that in another post at another time.
Anyway, how do you do a project backup now?
