I have several .srw files received from client that I can't open. I have seen this topic in several discussions but couldn't really find the solution. The message I am getting is the following "Database format not recognized or read-only. It could not be opened." This shouldn't be a problem of corrupted files as the same message appears for all the .srw files. Can someone help me?
SewerGEMS / SewerCAD > Open existing file > locate the folder location, from that select the .swr file then you should be able to open it.
See below wiki for details on this.

If this doesn't help then if required you may upload model files for our testing.

Thank you for your quick reply.
Before I posted I tried opening the files according to the way you mentioned and, as I mentioned in my post above, the message that I get is the following: "Database format not recognized or read-only. It could not be opened."
I am attaching one of the files for your review.
I'm seeing the same error as you when I try to open your model so I've sent it to Development for analysis.
I'll respond back here when I get their response.
