File build with PS14 won't open in PS13

Hello all,

 

I'm a student who just got the license for using Plant Simulator 13.

Now my task is to improve an existing model but the file wont open.

 

I know that it was originally build with Plant Simulator 14 but my student license does not apply for this version.

 

Is this even the issue here? Does some have an idea that could help me?

Plant Simulation cannot open models from newer versions. This does not apply to maintenance packs (e.g. 14.0.0 vs. 14.0.1 vs. 14.0.2) which are mere sets of bugfixes, but beyond that, the file format simply differs.

At the moment, the student licenses still offer version 13 but we are changing that at the moment. Presumably, by mid January 2018, student licenses for version 14 will be available.
