RE: [NTB] The Version of This File Is Not Compatible With The Version of Windows
- WOW, that's odd. I have Win 7 64bit as well. I've had no such problems.
There are things to try like in NoteTab associate the .otl extension to
View > Options > File Filters..
See if that is in place, if not, add it.

Subject: [NTB] The Version of This File Is Not Compatible With The Version
I am migrating to a new PC running Windows 7 Professional 64 bit.
When I double-click on an outline file (OTL), I see the following error,
version of this file is not compatible with the version of windows you're
In Control Panel > Default Programs, OTL files are already associated with
NoteTab Pro 6.12/fv. Also, if I use the File > Open... menu from within
NoteTab, any outline opens and can be manipulated normally.
Possibly relevant: NotePro.exe is installed in D:\Program Files
What must I do to convince Win7 to launch OTL files normally?
Thanks for your help.

- Hi Laurie,
Thanks for your reply.
<<There are things to try like in NoteTab associate the .otl extension to
I had already done that. The problem is not with file associations. The error
message says the version of NTP is incompatible with Win7 64-bit.
I just discovered the problem. I was running version 6.12/fv. Moments ago, I
updated to v6.2/fv, and the compatibility issue disappeared.
Other strange behavior that is now corrected:
I didn't have the Swiss flag icon on OTL files nor on NotePro.exe itself.
None of my clip libraries were visible on the clipbar nor when I pressed F4 to
bring up the clipbook panel.
When I had double-clicked on any of the CLB library files, I was getting the
same incompatibility error message as was displayed when I had tried to open
an OTL file.
I am mentioning all these problems that are now corrected because others may
one day search the archive and they will see that the upgrade to version 6.2
fixes all these issues.
