Error: The package catalog database is for a later
If you receive this error, it indicates that the schema version of a catalog
database is newer than the schema expected by the
dds process that is
trying to actually make use of the catalog.
dds catalog databases are not
forwards-compatible and cannot be downgraded.
If you generated/modified the catalog using a
dds executable that is newer
than the one you attempted to open it with, it is possible that the newer
dds executable performed a schema upgrade that is unsupported by the older
If you have not specified a path to a catalog,
dds will use the user-local
default catalog database. If you receive this error while using the user-local
database, the solution is to either upgrade
dds to match the newer catalog
or to delete the user-local catalog database file.
Deleting the catalog database will lose any customizations that were contained in that catalog, and they will need to be reconstructed.
