    Hi @vinod chinthakindi,

    Yes, this is a known issue. It's due to a change that was made in the XML representation of processes/objects in Blue Prism with v6.6. There's a utility on the DX that can be downloaded to address this. You can find it at the following link:

    Hi @Eric Wilson,

    We are in similar situation, our Dev environment is on higher version 7.1.1 and STG & Prod are on lower version (6.10.1) yet to be upgraded. We have one urgent process which needs to be migrated from Dev to STG and Prod. Question is are release file backward compatible? are there any risk which we should be aware or be cautious.

    Hello @Paras Pabari,

    A bprelease from v7.1.1 should work fine in v6.10.1.

    Thanks @Eric Wilson. for sharing the DX link.
    It worked for me as expected.​ I just noticed the targeted versions are from BP 6.5 to BP 7.1. My requirement was in BP6.4.2. Anyway I converted to BP6.5 and imported to BP6.4.2 and it worked well.

    May I know is there a chance to include previous versions below BP 6.5 in this tool in coming days.

    @vinod chinthakindi,

    We have no plans for going back beyond v6.5 at this time. However, I believe that in most cases a .bprelease converted to v6.5 will likely work with v6 to v6.4. The only items that will cause problems, to my knowledge, will be Web APIs and Skills. This will no work with any BP release before v6.4 as that's the version they were introduced in.

    Cheers,

    Hi Eric

    We are in a similar situation where our lower environments are in v7.1.1 and Prod is in v6.10.1. We are seeing that any elements which have been spied in v7.1.1 are not working in Prod (v6.10.1). Here is an error that we are encountering when running the code in 6.10.1:


    Any idea how this can be resolved.

    Hello @Kunal Doshi,

    Yeah, this seems to be related to changes that were made in v7 with regards to application model definitions. I don't have an immediate solution for you though. 😞

    So you don't get an error when you import the VBO into the older version of Blue Prism, only when you actually try to run a process that uses the VBO?

    Cheers,

    Yes Eric. We do not get an error when we import the object into v6.10.1 from v7.1.1. It doesn't show an error in the Blue Prism code validation either. When we run the process it isn't able to identify the element.

    @Kunal Doshi,

    What happens when you view the model in the v7.1.1 Application Modeler? Does it show the same definitions as what you see in v6.10.1?

    @Eric Wilson,

    It doesn't show any of the attributes in v6.10.1. When I go to view the attributes for the elements imported from v7.1.1 to v6.10.1, it gives this error popup:

    @Kunal Doshi,

    Glad you understood what I was asking even though I had the versions backwards. 😂​ So this definitely an issue related to changes in the application model. Just to be clear, after you exported your VBO from v7.1.1 did you run it through the Compatibility Tools asset on the DX before importing it into v6.10?

    Cheers,
