I am trying to import the latest openLCA methods pack (v.2.0.3), which is not a zolca file but a JSON-LD file (.zip). When I use the import tool inside the open database in openLCA, I select the "Linked Data (JSON-LD)" option. Then in the directory selection screen, the .zip file is greyed out, and I cannot select it to import. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for your help.

Hi Nicole, I will forward this information to out developers. I do not know why the *.zip file is greyed out. In the meantime however, as a workaround, the openLCA LCIA method package 2.0.3 is also available as a *. zolca file on nexus.openLCA.org. You can import it into your existing database via import entire database. I hope this helps! Please let us know.

Hi Nicole, that is indeed strange. I was able to do both ... restore the 'openlca_lcia_methods_1_5_7_updatedCED.zolca' file as well as to import it into an existing database. If you want, you can send me your log file and I will see what I can do.
