Update a customized project after having chosen to not update it



A customized project created in an older version of ArcView was opened in a more recent version but was not updated when prompted.


1. Open the project file in a text editor. The first few lines looks like this:

FirstRootClassName: "Project"
Roots: 2
Version: 31

2. Change the Version number from the current to an older one. In this example: 31 to 30.

3. Save.

4. Reopen the project in ArcView.

5. Allow the Project Updater to update the project.
