Dear Epidata team! 

I tried to open a project in manager but got this error message: 

"PROJECT HAS INCORRECT XML VERSION!
MAX SUPPORTED XML VERSION:3
PROJECT XML VERSION 4" 

I then looked at the file in an XML editor, the header indicated version
4: 

<?XML VERSION="1.0" ENCODING="UTF-8"?>
<EPIDATA XMLNS="HTTP://WWW.EPIDATA.DK/XML/2.1"
XMLNS:XSI="HTTP://WWW.W3.ORG/2001/XMLSCHEMA-INSTANCE"
XSI:SCHEMALOCATION="HTTP://WWW.EPIDATA.DK/XML/2.1
HTTP://WWW.EPIDATA.DK/XML/2.1/EPX.XSD" VERSION="4" XML:LANG="EN"
DATESEPARATOR="/" DECIMALSEPARATOR="," TIMESEPARATOR="." CYCLE="56"> 

I tried the change the header to this (taken from an earlier version of
the project which was working): 

<?XML VERSION="1.0" ENCODING="UTF-8"?>
<EPIDATA XMLNS="HTTP://WWW.EPIDATA.DK/XML/2.0"
XMLNS:XSI="HTTP://WWW.W3.ORG/2001/XMLSCHEMA-INSTANCE"
XSI:SCHEMALOCATION="HTTP://WWW.EPIDATA.DK/XML/2.0
HTTP://WWW.EPIDATA.DK/XML/2.0/EPX.XSD" VERSION="3" XML:LANG="EN"
CYCLE="56"> 

This resulted in a new error, although I managed to open the project.
But the project did not contain all CRFs and no data... 

New error message: 

"LIST INDEX (0) OUT OF BOUNDS.PRESS OK TO IGNORE AND RISK DATA
CORRUPTION  [....]" 

As this is a real lifr project and I had to be able to carry on, I
solved the problem by copying the records from the bad file back into an
previous project file by using an XML editor. It then worked fine. I
noticed only one difference at the end of the bad file, some log lines. 

Hope this can help the project. 

I am using the 2.0.13.64 64 bit Win version of Manager and 2.0.10.26 of
the Client. 

We had the same problem on the Mac Version 

Best regards
