I have a series of simulations ran from OS 3.2.0. I installed the new version of 3.2.5 but then because it was time taking to while opening my files in new version, I decided to go back to OS 3.2.0 I uninstalled the new version and installed the OS 3.2.0, but I am not able to open the previous files. The OS is showing installed in my Program Files, but files do not open. Would you please advise on this?

@Houri can you add images of any error or warning windows that you see, or the OSM(s) you're trying to open? That would allow others to provide better help.

Did you upgrade your OSM files to version 3.2.5? After upgrading an OSM file from 3.2.0 to 3.2.5 you might not be able to open it in 3.2.0 anymore. Do you have the original files in 3.2.0 format? If not, you could try saving a copy of the OSM and manually changing the version back to 3.2.0. You might also try a newer version of OpenStudio.

I fixed the issue with Dr. Georg Reichard (VT). It was just because for some reason my files were linked to installer instead of the OS App. Thank you
