Any project which just once has been opened and saved by version 2 of 
EpiData Manager og EntryClient will have the file updated to version 3.

The version mentioned refers to the structure of the XML file, not the 
version of the software.

So someone in your organisation have opened and saved the file with the 
newest version. Which you should also use, since we have fixed many bugs.
Manager: v2.0.2.28
EntryClient: v2.0.2.13

It will always be such that a later version of the software can open ANY 
earlier public release version. BUT also such that you should NEVER use 
the testing version of Manager or EntryClient found on 
epidata.dk/testing.php on real project data. Since during the testing we 
might have changes to the xml structure of the project which are later 

Is there a reason why you would like to use v1.4.4.4 and not 
for your project ?
