Hi there,

Really in a bind here. I worked on the Mac version of Scrivener, and now have to switch back to my windows pc. When I load the .scrivx file the programme just ignores it. It goes to the 'start a project' splash screen.

When I try to open it from there, nothing happens. Is there an incompatibility here?

I'm a Scrivener enthusiast and experienced in PC/network support... but I am not a Scrivener expert. And I'm still editing on my first book. So take any opinion or advice I offer with a large grain of salt.

That helped! There where indeed files marked 'conflicting' and once I moved those to a new directory, the project loaded without a hitch. Thanks!

Would have saved me a lot of stress, though, if scrivener showed an error explaining this.
