Unknown Action

Hello.
In PowerAutomateDesktop, I copied and pasted a flow I had already created into a text file.
Then I copied and pasted it into a new flow in PowerAutomateDesktop.
The flow used to display properly, but yesterday I started getting an error message saying "Unknown Action".
I am using the latest version.
How can I solve this problem?
Thank you for your cooperation.

The PAD you copied the code from was probably version 2.14, while the PAD you copied into was 2.13.

They are not directly compatible.

Thank you very much for your response.


Your suggestion that there is no direct compatibility between PAD versions 2.13 and 2.14 has helped me to understand the cause of the error.
The PAD itself is backward compatible, so flows created before version 2.13 can be executed in version 2.14. However, I have copied and pasted the code created in version 2.13 into a text file, and of course that text file has not been updated to be suitable for version 2.14. Is this understanding correct?
I solved the problem by copying and pasting the code of the flow opened in version 2.14 PAD to the text file again.

 

I'm not good at English, so I apologize if this is rude.

Thank you very much for your help!
