Project Upgrade

The structure of Enterprise Architect project files is occasionally changed to support more features. When this happens, existing project files must be upgraded to the new format to ensure correct operation and to take advantage of all the new features.

When you try to load a project that was created in an early release of Enterprise Architect (for example, an archived project) using a recent release of Enterprise Architect, the system determines whether the project should be upgraded and, if the upgrade is necessary, displays the Upgrade Wizard, which takes you through the upgrade process.

Upgrading is a simple and quick process that brings your project to the current level to support all the latest Enterprise Architect features.
