Conversion from Mendix 4.7.2 to Mendix 5.0.0-rc1 not supported

When I try to convert our project from 4.7.2. to 5.0.0-rc1 I get a error that conversion is not possible. "The project located at C:\abc\def\xyz\project.mpr could not be opened, because it was created with version 4.7.2 of the Modeler, which is incompatible with this version of the Modeler." Is there a way to work around this, or when will it be supported in the next Mx5 version?

Mendix 5.0.0 will be released tomorrow! That version will be able to convert Mendix 4.7.2 projects.


Mendix 4.7.2. was released after 5.0.0-rc1. Therefore it indeed, cannot be converted. The release notes of 5.0.0-rc1 state the following:

Modeler 5.0.0-rc1 can open projects created with Mendix 4.7.1 (was 4.6.1 in 5.0.0-beta8). It includes all fixes and features introduced in Mendix 4 since 4.6.1.

So only projects up to Mendix 4.7.1 can be openend / converted in 5.0.0-rc1.

Probably the next release will be able to convert 4.7.2 projects.
