Version Incompatability

I have version 7.04.006 of starccm+. I have been sent a .sim file from someone but when I open it I get a message that says:
Error: incompatable version: newer files can not be restored into older versions of the program.

Can anyone help with this?

Maybe he is using the latest release 7.06.009?
I am installing it now yay!

Read the error message:
You can not open a simulation file saved with a specific version of STAR-CCM+ with an older version of STAR-CCM+.

The only solution is to use the same or a newer version. You can find out the version of the sim-file when you press "info" in the open dialog.

is there anyway is it was created in 7.06.009 you can open it in 7.06.006 or perhaps convert it?

You may try exporting a *.ccm file (proSTAR Volume Mesh) and importing it to the version you are using. This works in both directions (up- and downward different versions of CCM+). It also includes all Interfaces you have created in your model.
