Szabolcs has asked WRI support about mx files, in particular:
- Can we expect that MX files written by Mathematica 10.0.0 will be readable by future point released such as 10.0.1 or 10.0.2?
And this is true, in V10.3 I can open .mx files generated in V10.2. However, I can't open files from 10.3 in 10.2, getting an error:
DumpGet::bgnew : File ***.mx has been written by a newer version of DumpSave and cannot be loaded.
Why this matters?
$VersionNumber is still
10.2... so I can't work on my desktop 10.3 with projects that involve cloud interactions with mx files. Or I have to create work arounds from my current setup. Like using 10.2 from time to time or Cloud side
To fit the MMA.SE scheme, let me ask the question. Can I
DumpSave from 10.3 so that it is readable on Clound and/or 10.3 desktop MMA?
