Having a bit of trouble opening a Watchout show someone sent me. (the sender is not available to answer this question)

The error message is:
"Can't open file: Undefined class: MediaCueBase on line 2185, offending item: MediaCueBase; File version 5.2"

My system is running Watchout version 5.1.
Could it be that the file I'm trying to open was made in version 5.2?
Can you not open a 5.2 file in 5.1?

Hi Bob-as is customary in most software, Watchout is backwards compatible only, meaning it can only open files of the same or earlier version.
Any reason why you haven't upgraded to 5.2?

Since this show was made on 5.2, you need to update to 5.2 in order to open it. This is a free upgrade for any v5 user. You can always open an older show version with a newer version of the program, but generally not vice versa.
