The file opened ok before I upgraded (see below).


I up graded my server hardware to a Mac Pro with Yosemite 10.10.1. I used the full download 13v5 for Yosemite according to KB 13886.


According to KB 11953 the minimum setting must be done when NOT hosted. Maybe the setting got changed when I upgraded. So I unhosted the file and set to minimum 12 (that where is was set. I set at 13 and change back to 12 to be sure)


Still will not open.


Am I missing something?

Any other reports of this happening?
