Citavi 4 beta: "project was created with a later version"

Postby aanon » 2013-04-09 00:33

System information: [ -, Windows 8, English, Other browser, MS Office 2010 32Bit, - ]

I have been working for a couple of days in Citavi 4 Beta ( Suddenly today I cannot open my main project file!

I get an error saying: "this project was created with a later version of Citavi and cannot be opened". The file has a .ctv4 extension.

What could be the issue here? How can I get my project back? I have tried repairing the Citavi 4 Beta installation, and also reinstalling the program, to no avail.

I have now solved this by installing a newer version of the Citavi 4 Beta ( Seems the problem was caused by me opening the project in version on another computer and then later trying to open it in version on this computer.

I was surprised to find that these two slightly different versions of the Citavi 4 Beta generated incompatible files. Nonetheless, happy that the problem seems to be solved now.
