Hmm, the supported migration paths are configured in registry, see the
"Migration" section at
I see only the release versions there. It seems that migration from
"Dev" builds has never been supported. I guess that Dev builds could
inherit configuration from a release build but not from the older Dev
The best solution would be to produce build-specific registry entry. I
am not sure how to do it easily.
Anyway, the migration should work in the official Alpha, Beta, RC
