Onion from SIMCA-file created in earlier version (Q788)

The information in this article applies to: 
MODDE 12
MODDE 11
MODDE 10
Symptoms: 

MODDE is not responding after selecting a SIMCA .usp-file to import. Nothing happens when clicking Switch To or Retry in the 'Server Busy'-message that states "This action cannot be completed because the other program is busy. Choose 'Switch To' to activate the busy program and correct the problem."

Cause: 

When importing a SIMCA .usp-file to MODDE to create an onion design, and the current version of SIMCA on your computer is SIMCA 13 or later while the .usp-file was created in SIMCA-P+ 12 or earlier, a message may appear behind the application.

Resolution: 

Find the SIMCA-message using Alt+Tab and click OK. The message states "<name>.usp was created by an older version of SIMCA and will be converted before it can be opened.". Click Retry on the 'Server Busy'-message.
