The documentation states "IMPORTANT! The SDK is completely independent from the Microsoft Flight Simulator executable" but it seems that the current SDK v0.20.2.0 is not compatible with the current live version of the sim. The newer SDK added extra attributes:
These throw errors when trying to build a project that has been saved with v0.20.2.0 and running the current live sim version.

Is this a known issue? I don't think I'd be the only one experiencing it. The project will only build with the beta version of the sim installed.
Trying to open the project from within the sim just generated the error 'Could not load project'
I do have spaces in my project path but I thought that was an issue that was fixed several Sim Updates ago.
