Load definition results in bugsplat if skp file was created in a newer version of SU


#1

Sketchup.open_file filepath
will gracefully give an error message if the file was created in a newer version of SketchUp

But
Sketchup.active_model.definitions.load filepath
will result in a bugsplat in the same situation.

Is there any way to test for the version of an skp file before load?

Already answered in the official bug tracker at GitHub.

… basically Greg’s edition is smallest and most concise … 4th comment

And I explore what happened in older SketchUp versions in the 6th comment.
