The content of XBuilder is not correct due to mismatch of the XBuilder version

Issue

When importing an old database into a new version of Vista, right click on a Xenta Server and select "Edit" to open the Xbuilder project. (Change the version information in the property of Xenta Server. Refer to Lessons Learned Article #2513.) The old XBuilder project will automatically be upgraded to match the new version of XBuilder. However, the content of the project sometimes will be incorrect after this conversion.
