I am a new user for openlca.

I already succeed to import methods database. 

However, when I tried to import LCIA method and  I follow this procedure: file > import > select "import entire database" > from exported zolca files > select the file on my computer > Finish.

A message is displayed : "An error occured - database import failed"
When I open the error details : this what I see :

Apologies for the inconvenience! This seems to be a problem with the new openLCA version which we will fix as soon as possible! In the meantime,

1) Download the methods as usual and import them into openLCA via right-click restore; open the database which contains only the methods and export the database as JSON-LD file; import the exported methods into an existing database

2) Use openLCA 1.7.2 https://sourceforge.net/projects/openlca/files/openlca_framework/

Of course we will provide a fixed openLCA 1.7.3 version as soon as possible!
