    CS4: Unable to Open a Premiere 6 Project File

    Shoestringfellow

      Hi!

       

      I'm trying to open an Adobe Premiere 6 (Windows) file in Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 (Windows 64-bit),and I'm getting the following error:

       

      The project appears to be damaged, it cannot be opened.

       

      As a possible workaround, I tried to import the Premiere 6 project into a newly created Premiere Pro CS4 project.  After selecting the Premiere 6 projet file, I clicked Import Entire Project, then OK... and then I got the following message:

       

      The project appears to be damaged, it cannot be opened.

       

      I'm able to open the Premiere 6 file in a text editor, and it looks undamaged to me.  Does anyone have any suggestions -- hopefully something less painful than starting from scratch in Premiere Pro?

       

      Thanks in advance.
