Can't Move Backward

Mike - thanks for the idea but even a script like this fails
    on mouseUp
       lock messages
       go stack [legacyStackPath]
    end mouseUp

The result is the file I chose is not a stack file.

So currently I can't open a stack which is a nearly two years of work in 
an older version of Livecode.  Meanwhile, 7.0.1 is so full of bugs (even 
playing a sound after 'waiting till sound is done' crashes) I can barely 
use the stack.  I failed to maintain piles of old versions of my project 
trusting Livecode's claim that a release is stable and relying on the 
legacy saving ability.  Both of these have failed leaving me pleading 
for suggestions.

Anybody?

You might turn off messages before opening the stack to see if it loads.
Also, if you're double clicking to open the stack, try using the file menu
instead.
