Hi,

I recently upgraded my P4V to P4V/NTX64/2018.1/1637591 and when I launch the "P4Admin" tool under Tools > Administration [Ctrl+Shift+A] I get a popup saying that the admin tool is not compatible with comments created by an older version of P4Admin (see the attached image). I'm not sure what I should do here. I don't want to risk running the suggested operation because I have users who are still using older versions of P4V/P4Admin and I don't know what the consequence will be.


Thanks,

-Jonathan Wilson

This just means you could/should change your protections table comment style from the old wonky one to the new hash character (#) style. If it works like it did before P4V was upgraded, it will just present you with a blank protections table (probably like what it's doing now when viewing old style comments with a new P4Admin.)

If you ever use the commandline to edit your protections table, you should change the comment style immediately IMHO. Then just have people use the latest P4Admin, there's no reason not to.
