It's possible that there are leftover processes that may use the file when you open it in another version. Try using Revo Uninstaller. Even if it can't uninstall the application normally, it will force it to uninstall by wiping out all traces of its presence from the system.
After that, try running AdwCleaner to make sure that there are no leftover rogue registry keys or toolbars in your system.
Once you complete these steps, open the file again. I am sure that it will work this time.
