That error comes up when the file was saved in a later version of Illustrator than you're running. Have you tried updating to the latest version of Illustrator?

I created it on illustrator 2022 or 2021, but the thing is it shouldn't be a problem because I few weeks ago I open this document on illustrator 2022 and was fine.

Hi @Louis22388245quuk,

 

Sorry to hear about the trouble you are facing. As everyone said above, this generally happens when files contain some objects/ elements which have some properties/effects applied to them which are not compatible with an older version of Illustrator.

I would request you to upload this file to Creative Cloud/ Dropbox/ Google drive or any similar service and share the download link here with us or via DM. We will check it on our end.

 

Looking forward to the file.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Anshul Saini
