    Cannot restore Z-Wave controller

    I have a Z-Troller. I backed up the interface, then tried to restore. If fails with the message:
    "The destination interface is not supported for a restore since it is too old."

    I searched forum and got suggestion of downgrading the Z-Wave to earlier version. My Z-Troller version is:
    Z-NET V2 Configuration - Version 1.0.23

    My Z-Wave addin is version

    How do I resolve the failure to restore?

    Is it possible to roll back to a older version of the Z-Wave plugin?

    Similar issue has been reported for the SmartStick+ and HUSBZB-1. It appears it affects the Z-Net as well. I suspected this might be the case and chose not to update to this latest version for this (and other) reasons.

    The previous Z-Wave plugin release version was, dated 23 December 2019. The install archives are available at for Windows for Linux

    There's a file within each named install.txt that provides a roadmap of where the files go.


      I put in a support ticket for this a week ago. I got a request for some additional info, which I provided, but there has been no more action that I know of.
