It's great to see you here, @Anonymous,
Welcome and thanks for joining our forum. I can share some insights about restoring a company file in QuickBooks Desktop.
The error typically comes up when you restore a backup or company file to a different QuickBooks version. To get past this, please ensure the new QuickBooks matches with the version of the old company. For example, if you created a backup copy from QuickBooks Premier, you can restore it on the same edition or a higher version of the product.
To know more about the compatibility when upgrading or restoring in QuickBooks Desktop, you can check out this article: Company File Compatibility with QuickBooks Desktop.
That should give you the information you need, @Anonymous. Please update me on the outcome. I'm a quick post away. Wishing you all the best!
