I am getting the attached error when I am trying to open .cpf file.
Created data model in one server and trying to open that in another server. I have transfered the entire folder to another server and trying to open that
Both the server contains the same version of cognos(cognos 10).
How can I proceed??

Compare the version and build numbers between the two environments. Also, compare the version information identified at the start of the model.xml file between models created in each environment.

This is the information I found in cmplst file of one server
and the following in cmplst file of another server
What I have to do now?
Re: Error when opening a .cpf file2012-04-30T20:48:44Z in response to yuvranWell, you obviously have a difference in version like the error message was telling you. The first server is using 10.1.1 and the second is using 10.1. Your strategy going forward depends on how much content is in each system. Your options are:
1. Upgrade 10.1 to 10.1.1 and test all your upgraded content
2. Downgrade 10.1.1 to 10.1 and redo the work you have done in 10.1.1
- If the 10.1.1 system has only been used for FM modelling then you might be able to replay the log files to recreate the model in an earlier version. It may also be possible (although unsupported) to modify the initial header information in the model.xml to make it recognizable in 10.1.
Personally, I would say that you would be better off using 10.1.1 because of the additional dynamic query mode capabilities for DMR models.
