After Effects CC 2017 won't open a CC (16.0) Ver. Project

Can anyone help me with this? I've tried pretty much everything to open, spend some good money on this project file and the seller won't answer. If anyone has any solutions I'd appreciate them, thanks!

The project was made in AE CC 2019, aka version 16. You're working in AE CC2017, aka version 14.

People have NEVER been able to open project files made in a later version using an earlier version. Never. But that doesn't mean you're sunk.

You need to download BOTH AE CC 2019 and AE CC 2018. Then you need to backsave the project file. First, open the CC 2019 project in CC 2019. Using the Save As command, save the version to CC 2018, aka version 15. Now repeat the process in CC 2018, backsaving the newly-saved 2018 to 2017.

Now you can open that file in CC2017. That's what it takes.

Would be nice if Adobe used a logical versioning system, like CC2019 was numbered 19.XX...

Along a similar vein, has anyone tried or have experience with this script?:

I was looking into this when it looked like I was going to have a ton of work not, only for going between AE versions, but on different OS platforms as well.
