DesignBuilder dsb file version compatibility
Posted by Andy Tindale on 14-Mar-19 10:47 AM

DesignBuilder supports compatibility, i.e. new versions of the software can successfully read in files last saved in older versions. However it does not support forward compatibility, i.e. older versions of the software cannot read in files last saved in more recent versions.

This is especially important when users must use a specific version of the software for certification (e.g. SBEM). In this case models should be created in the same version of the software that will run calculations.
