    The DSN file format is evolving since 16.3. in 16.3, select the DSN filename in the Project Manager window, then File>Save as, change the "Save as" type to "Capture 16.2 Design (*.DSN)", this willk save the DSN file in the earlier format.

    That's it... The 16.3 DSN file format differs from the previous versions since, after about 10 years the format evolved to support new requirements. The File>Save as allows the file to be saved in the previous DSN file format, 16.0 is unable to open the 16.3 formatted DSN file data directly, so either re-install 16.3 and save the file back to the previous file format, or start again in 16.0
