PDM Standard File Version Upgrade Tool

I'm gradually working my way through figuring out the migration from Workgroup PDM to PDM Standard and evaluating it for use at my company. Came across an interesting issue, hopefully someone knows the answer to. Does PDM Standard provide the means for the File Version Upgrade tool to work properly? I've tried setting it up to upgrade some files from 2015 to 2016 in my test vault but at the very end of the wizard I get an error "Call to check revisions failed. Error code 0x080040203". Haven't been able to track that error down on the internet so I'm wondering if PDM Standard even supports the use of this tool? And if not, how are we supposed to upgrade our files each year? I'm sure not wasting days of my time manually opening everything up to upgrade.


Haven't contacted my VAR about this yet, I suppose they may know the answer. I just wonder if anyone has thought about this yet. It's all fine and dandy to get my stuff over into PDM Standard but if I can't run this tool every year then that might be what it takes for me to start looking elsewhere for document management ...
