Here is a short video of how to make copies of your Nutcracker files:

Here is a table of theattributes that might need to be added into your xml file if your version is older than 18.
    missing = missing + wxT("|ID_SLIDER_Brightness|ID_SLIDER_Brightness=100");
    missing = missing + wxT("|ID_SLIDER_Contrast|ID_SLIDER_Contrast=0");
    Meteors1 = Meteors1 + wxT("|ID_CHECKBOX_Meteors1_FallUp|ID_CHECKBOX_Meteors1_FallUp=0");
    Meteors2 = Meteors2 + wxT("|ID_CHECKBOX_Meteors2_FallUp|ID_CHECKBOX_Meteors2_FallUp=0");

    // Lots of variables to check for  text effect
    Text1 = Text1 + wxT("|ID_TEXTCTRL_Text1_1_Font|ID_TEXTCTRL_Text1_1_Font=");
    Text1 = Text1 + wxT("|ID_CHOICE_Text1_1_Dir|ID_CHOICE_Text1_1_Dir=left");
    Text1 = Text1 + wxT("|ID_SLIDER_Text1_1_Position|ID_SLIDER_Text1_1_Position=50");
    Text1 = Text1 + wxT("|ID_SLIDER_Text1_1_TextRotation|ID_SLIDER_Text1_1_TextRotation=0");
    Text1 = Text1 + wxT("|ID_CHECKBOX_Text1_COUNTDOWN1|ID_CHECKBOX_Text1_COUNTDOWN1=0");
    Text1 = Text1 + wxT("|ID_TEXTCTRL_Text1_2_Font|ID_TEXTCTRL_Text1_2_Font=");
    Text1 = Text1 + wxT("|ID_CHOICE_Text1_2_Dir|ID_CHOICE_Text1_2_Dir=left");
    Text1 = Text1 + wxT("|ID_SLIDER_Text1_2_Position|ID_SLIDER_Text1_2_Position=50");
    Text1 = Text1 + wxT("|ID_SLIDER_Text1_2_TextRotation|ID_SLIDER_Text1_2_TextRotation=0");
    Text1 = Text1 + wxT("|ID_CHECKBOX_Text1_COUNTDOWN2|ID_CHECKBOX_Text1_COUNTDOWN2=0");

    Text2 = Text2 + wxT("|ID_TEXTCTRL_Text2_1_Font|ID_TEXTCTRL_Text2_1_Font=");
    Text2 = Text2 + wxT("|ID_CHOICE_Text2_1_Dir|ID_CHOICE_Text2_1_Dir=left");
    Text2 = Text2 + wxT("|ID_SLIDER_Text2_1_Position|ID_SLIDER_Text2_1_Position=50");
    Text2 = Text2 + wxT("|ID_SLIDER_Text2_1_TextRotation|ID_SLIDER_Text2_1_TextRotation=0");
    Text2 = Text2 + wxT("|ID_CHECKBOX_Text2_COUNTDOWN1|ID_CHECKBOX_Text2_COUNTDOWN1=0");
    Text2 = Text2 + wxT("|ID_TEXTCTRL_Text2_2_Font|ID_TEXTCTRL_Text2_2_Font=");
    Text2 = Text2 + wxT("|ID_CHOICE_Text2_2_Dir|ID_CHOICE_Text2_2_Dir=left");
    Text2 = Text2 + wxT("|ID_SLIDER_Text2_2_Position|ID_SLIDER_Text2_2_Position=50");
    Text2 = Text2 + wxT("|ID_SLIDER_Text2_2_TextRotation|ID_SLIDER_Text2_2_TextRotation=0");
    Text2 = Text2 + wxT("|ID_CHECKBOX_Text2_COUNTDOWN2|ID_CHECKBOX_Text2_COUNTDOWN2=0");

The point of this list is to say, i will be checking and modifying the xml file if i see missing values or misspelled attribute names.

So please, make a copy and then use ver 19.

These fixes should eliminate those annoying message about some attribute is missing.
