Import an old project

Use this procedure when you have a project created with previous Studio versions and want to turn it into a new project.

Info

You can import projects created with any version of Studio in the 14.x range.

  1. In the Welcome to Studio screen select Open.

  2. In Open File or Project select the folder containing the old project files and select OK.

If instead you are already working on a project:

  1. Select File > New > Project from Existing Sources.

  2. In Select File or Directory to Import select the folder containing the old project files and select OK.

  3. In Import Project from Existing Sources select Next to follow the steps in the procedure. You can also accept the default values. Select Finish in the last dialog to start importing the project.

Info

After an import procedure, a backup of a the original project is automatically created, it is the ImportBackup.zip file you can find it in the project directory.

At the end of the procedure, a README.md file appears in the editor containing the report of the operation and any errors.

Also at the end of the procedure, Studio automatically builds the new project. The result is documented in the Console and in the Event Log tool windows.
