[WX] - Old WX project not opening in WX17

Startbeitrag von Yogi Yang am 01.12.2015 12:41

I have been able to open old WX 15 projects in WX17 and WX17 always seems to convert the old project and open it.

But just yesterday I got a project original created in WX15 but when I try to open the project in WX17 it process the project for a long time and then gives error.

The project is built with WX15 French version I think. While we are using WX17 English version

Does this difference of language matter?

How to solve this problem?

Does this happen with latest versions of WX also? If this problem is also in new version that I think moving (or rather jumping) to a new version (from WX17 to) say WX20 would be a nightmare as we will have to recreate all the projects from scratch!

no, the language is not a problem at all...

This CAN happen when something is broken in the original project. So you need to:

1. open it in 15, recompile it, repair it, etc...
2. try again to migrate
3. if that doesn't work, you need to identify what part of the project is broken and exclude it from the original project. Normally, the migration should display the name of the processed object (window, report, etc)... the last one displayed is the culprit
If it does not display, then you can create a new 17 project, and import objects from the old one by group, via the file import menu choice. You will be able to see which one is a problem that way

Best regards

Hi Yogi,

I can open my old WX14 projects only with the old usb dongle driver from the WX14 installation, perhaps this happens also to you.

Hello again,

I am getting this precise message when trying to open an old version project

Error loading project.
Unable to complete initialization:
The open file does not contain a valid object description
Internal Conflict (DL)

How to solve this?

Option 3 of Fabrice seems to be the only choice you have.
