This version of Roon is not compatible with your database

Roon Core Machine

I’m failing to migrate Roon Core from my PC to my new NUC. So here are details of both.

Source machine
Model: It’s a custom-built workstation, so there’s no model name.
CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 5900X 12-Core Processor
Operating system: Windows 11
Roon Core version: 2.0 (build 1223) production (64bit)

Target machine
Model: Intel NUC11TNHi5
CPU: Intel Core i5-1135G7
SSD: 512GB
Operating System: Roon Optimized Core Kit Version 1.0 (build 254)
Roon Core version: Version 2.0 (build 1143) production

Networking Gear & Setup Details

Both machines are connected to the local network via Ethernet.

Connected Audio Devices

I have had no problems with audio devices on the source machine. And I’m shut out of the new machine so can’t set them up there yet. So I’m not listing the audio devices at this stage.

Number of Tracks in Library

506 tracks

Description of Issue

I successfully installed ROCK on my new NUC.
I made a backup of the Roon Core database on my PC.
I restored the backup to the NUC and rebooted the NUC.
I disconnected Roon on my PC from the Roon Core on the same PC.
I attempted to connect Roon on the PC to Roon Core on the NUC. That failed with the following error message:

This version of Roon is not compatible with your database.
This usually indicates that Roon was downgraded after installing a version that changed the database format.

The Roon Core versions appear to be the same on both machines. I would appreciate any suggestions.

You need to bring the ROCK‘s core version up to date. Which is 1223.

As stated you’ll need to update your new Core as it is not at the latest version.

Thanks @ Bernd_Kurte and @ SandsOfArrakis. That worked.

My mistake was assuming that the build numbers were not significant.

They usually are. With the latest version I’ve received the message that the database was being updated.
