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,
