I guess you have seen this faq: http://support.automation.siemens.com/WW/view/en/13396711
That message comes when protool project was saved in later version of Protool. But Protool v6.0 + sp3 is latest.
Perhaps Servicepack 3 for Windows XP is the problem. Here is compatibility between Protool and Windows: http://support.automation.siemens.com/WW/view/en/8795248 There is no mentioning about Windows XP + sp3.

It's a very strange thing I have never seen. But try to use Windows XP+SP2 with your protool.
I didn't seen this problem as While I was using Windows XP+SP2 and protool, I moved to winCC flexable. And then I moved to Windows XP+SP3 with winCC flex. No more work with protool. Any way, just try to use Windows XP+SP3 or try to use WinCC flexable. You can migrate the protool project to WinCC flexable project easily and without instaling Protool.

|Hi New Tech,
I have had the same problem, and it was not solved by uninstaling XP SP3 or by reinstalling the PC with a brand new Windows XP SP2 ...
It was solved by reinstalling Step 7 V5.4 with it´s SP 3.1 - and nothing more.
I think that the problems occurs from the upgrade packs for Step 7 SP4 & SP5.
Try to reinstall Step 7 without the additional upgrades, and then install Protool. After that you can install the Step 7 upgrades.
