Strange Database Schema Error

So I have 2013 and 2014 installed on the same PC.  I made some components and assembled them in Inventor Pro 2013.  I also exported a STEP file for another person working with Solidworks.  Now I am getting Database Schema errors when I try to open the .iam in the 2013 version - where it was made.


"Database schema for file C:\Users...FRAME.iam is (18.0 (Build 180130000, 130)), which is newer than this version (17.0 (Build 170138000, 138)) of the software."


All of the piece parts still open in 2013, just the assembly is pointing towards a newer version.  Did it use some part of the 2014 installation to modify my assembly?  I've been on several machines with multiple versions and never ran into this.


Anyone familiar with this?





*I was able to get an old version from my cloud storage to work, but if you can provide any insight into why this happened I'd like to avoid this issue in the future.
