Ardour 6 not opening old projects

I can still open these projects with Ardour 5.12 which I still have installed. But Ardour 6 crashes whenever I try to open my old projects.

First I get a message saying “This is a session from an older version of Ardour. Ardour has copied the old session file…From now on , use the backup copy with older versions of Ardour.”

Then I get this message after the project loads and then the program closes:

Any one know how to fix this?

I’m using an Early 2015 MacBook Air with 1.6 GHz Intel Core i5 processor. 8GB of RAM.

Does it open if you try to do so in safe mode?

If not, can you create a Mantis issue and post the .ardour session file into it that you are seeing this happen on?
