Resolution

The files created in SCIEX OS Software are not backwards compatible with other versions of the software. This error appears when a processing method created with a higher version of SCIEX OS Software (e.g., 2.0) is opened with a previous version of SCIEX OS Software (e.g., 1.7).

To open a processing method created in the latest version of SCIEX OS Software with the older version, export the processing method as a text file. Then open a new processing method in an older version of SCIEX OS Software and import the components and integration parameters from the text file. Once all integration parameters are imported, save the method.
