Select Notepad and press Just Once, as you won’t generally be opening XER files in this application.
A text document will open with the XER file’s information. In the upper left hand side of the document, you’ll see the P6 version number. Change this version number to the version of Primavera P6 you’ll be importing to. Then, save the text document as an XER file by selecting File > Save.
The selected project file should import and open within the program.
