Hi Áron,

Thank you 

When reporting problems like these, it's always helpful if you are
specific. When you say "I cannot open old Lyx files", that doesn't give
us much information to go off of. Why can't you open old LyX files? LyX
does not open? Or it opens and gives an error? How exactly are you
opening the LyX files from within LyX using File > Open or are you
double-clicking them in your file browser?

Also when giving a bug report, it's useful to say what your operating
system is and what the version of your operating system is. For example,
I'm using Ubuntu 15.04.

Finally, what is your LyX version? Is it 2.1.4? You can find this
information in Help > About.

Is there an old LyX file that does not open for you that is
confidential, that you could send to this list (which would make it
public)? Or are they all private (which is understandable of course)?

Please respond to the list and not to me personally.

Best,

Scott
