If the file extension is .uds, then it is the current file format and may be opened by any version of Generations from 5.2 through 8.5a.

If there are a group of files (7-9) in a folder, then it is in the older v4.2 or earlier format. That format can be 'upgraded' by the newer software to the current format. Instead of opening a file in Easytree, click on the Upgrade button on the start screen of the program and navigate to the location where the folder containing the group of files is located.
