Hello, I am encountering an unexpected error when I try to import some THERM files into the "Frame Library" in WINDOW.   Files were simulated using THERM 7.8.72.0, and I am attempting to import them into WINDOW 7.8.38.0

The usual import dialog displays 3 subsequent error messages after trying to import: 1) "Invalid Material Properties", 2) "Unexpected File Format", and 3) "Trouble loading file: <filepath>"  (see attached pictures)

I'm encountering this error on 8 out of 9 files I have tried to import today; I tried restarting my computer, but that didn't fix the problem.  Can anyone offer advice on how to resolve this?  I'm trying to finish a time-sensitive energy simulation for my client this week.

I think the issue is that you are importing a THERM file created with a version that is more recent than the WINDOW version you are importing into. 

You need to use the same versions for both THERM and WINDOW when using them together. 

I would recommend using the latest version of 7.8 for both, which is 7.8.74

I updated to WINDOW 7.8.74 and that seems to have fixed the problem. Thanks for your help!
