Could you let me know how I can open files that were saved using an
State saving in Mev has been through several overhauls. Saved analysis from versions below 4.X can no longer be loaded in MeV. You should be able to open saved analysis files from version 4.x and beyond without any issues.
The only exception to this rule is version 4.0 beta files.
They aren't guaranteed to be compatible, since it was a beta version. Files saved with v4.0beta are *most likely* openable in any 4.x version, but we don't really support it.
Hope that helps,
How do you know which version my files are from? I don't remember which version I used to save them.
Here is how you go about finding the version
1. Change your analysis filename extension to zip. On windows you can right click the file, hit rename and change the extension to zip.
2. Open the zip file and look for a mev_state.xml file.
3. On opening the mev_state.xml you will come across a tag that says void property="mevMajorVersion". The number immediately below this tag is the version number.
If you do not see any such file on unzipping, you ran your analysis on MeV 3.x
