open 7.0.7 project in 8.0.10. disables automation lanes


if I open a project created with C7.0.7 in C8.0.10., all automation lanes have the Read status disabled.


System: Cubase 8.0.10. 64 bit on Windows 7 64 bit.

… I have to add that I also installed an update for the VSTi which is used in these tracks. Could that be related? But updating a plugin shouldn’t mess anything with the automation, right? All the automations still work as before, so there is no need for Cubase to disable them.

Just tried to open the 7.0.7. project in 7.5.4 and there the automation lanes are disabled as well. It only opens correctly in 7.0.7. itself.
