Error “This script was generated with an outdated DFE engine”

If you encounter the following error when trying to replay a script created with previous versions of VuGen:

Fatal Error -26000: This script was generated with an outdated DFE engine, regenerate the script in order to successfully replay the DFE steps.

Warning: Extension lrwreplaymain.dll reports error -1 on call to function ExtPerProcessInitialize

Error: Thread Context: Call to service of the driver failed, reason – thread context wasn’t initialized on this thread.

This error occurs because the script is being replayed with a version of the DFE engine newer than the one it was generated by. It usually happens if new patches are installed after the script was recorded.

There are 2 possible workarounds for this issue

1. Navigate to the script folder
