Can you be a bit more specific ?
Which version of EpiData Manager ?
If it is earlier than the current most up to date ( *v2.0.2.28)*, then
get the latest and try again.

What types of fields are in the files where it does not work ?

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
abandoned.

Is there a reason why you would like to use v1.4.4.4 and not 2.0.2.13
for your project ?
