Hi, You are trying to open from higher version to lower version i.e. 6.0.3 --> 6.0.0.

It is one type of downgrade. I hope it is not possible to do this. But u can open CB 6.0.3 back up in 800xA 6.0.3.

it might also be good to know that 800xA 6.0.3/6.0.2 use Control Builder 6.0.0-1, which is the latest version of Compact Control Builder.
