    Hi there,
    Try the following:
    1) Open the NWDS and check-out for edit the 3 files and add them to activity in Development Infrastructure perspective.
    2) Close the NWDS.
    3) In project directory on the file system find the 3 files and replace them with the fixed one.
    4) Open the NWDS and build the project. Now it should build successfully.
    What I fixed in the 3 files is to remove some artifacts associated with boundary events
    that have no corresponding activity and their scope cannot be determined.
    This is a result of compiling the process that was modelled with previous version of NWDS.
    A new validation was added to newer NWDS versions.
    Kind regards,
