    Project created with GUI will not build from command line

    I edited a project with 2014 SP1 in the Advanced Designer and built it. I then tried to run it during the nightly build process and it failed to build with the following error:
    [buildinstaller] Original project unchanged
    [buildinstaller]
    [buildinstaller]
    [buildinstaller]
    [buildinstaller] You are attempting to open an InstallAnywhere Project created by a higher
    [buildinstaller] edition of InstallAnywhere. InstallAnywhere will attempt to load and view
    [buildinstaller] the requested project however, all actions not appropriate to this edition
    [buildinstaller] will be removed. Saving or building the project will cause the original

    The build just hung there and did not continue.
    I am using the same installation of Install Anywhere for editing the install and building it from the command line.
    If I can't make changes to the install this is pretty useless.
    Any ideas what is going on?
    Thanks you.

    Same problem here with IA 2015.

    Is anybody from Flexera even looking at this forum?

    Delete ~/.InstallAnywhere

    I worked around it by going into the home directory, and moving/deleting the ~/.InstallAnywhere directory -- notice the dot at the front of the dir.
    After that I was able to build without hanging. FYI, this happened on a Centos 7 Linux box with InstallAnywhere 2017 SP1 and 2015 SP1.

    Code:

    [buildinstaller]    edition of InstallAnywhere. InstallAnywhere will attempt to load and view 
    [buildinstaller]    the requested project however, all actions not appropriate to this edition 
    [buildinstaller]    will be removed. Saving or building the project will cause the original
