SQL compare V7.0 can not handle project from V3.4

I am testing the SQL Compare 7.0 and I am getting runtime error at startup when I have in the default project directory at least one projects stored in format from previous SQL Compare

When I remove the old projects from the default project directory it works fine.

    Projects from v3.4 aren't compatible with v7, but we shouldn't be throwing unhandled exceptions - I'll have a look at it. If you could send me the project file in question (to [email protected]) that may help us understand the problem.
