hello, yes I did and here is the answer I got after tryin to open the project archived:

Selected path doesn't seem to be a project archive

I can not find the subject anywhere, do I need to downgrade to resolve 15 ?

can I even go from a windows to a Mac ? it is weird that I find so little information on the subject !

thank you very much for any type of help.

You will need to export the drp project files from the Windows Resolve 15 machine and then transfer them to your Mac Resolve 16 system and import them. Easy.

Keep in mind that all your media links will be referencing your Windows file paths so you will probably have to relink all your media.

Hi Arthur

From the Project Manager, you can import and export projects as DRP files.
You can also Restore/Archive projects - which creates a folder called .dra (along with media used in the project).

You may want to try the Import option instead of Restore if you have a drp file.
