   Subject: Transferring .sla file from Windows 7 to Vista Gives Error
Hi all,

I have created a .sla file on a friend's machine in Windows 7 on

I would like to be able to carry on editing it on my Windows Vista machine,  
but when I copy the file across and try to open it on Vista it says that the  
format is invalid. I searched on that error message and it says that normally  
this happens when you try and open a file in an older version of the program,  
but we both have the same version.

Could this be a mismatch between a 64bit and a 32 bit machine?

If so, is there any way to rescue the content so I can still edit it (eg. I  
have been playing with the Collect for Output option in the file menu)?
