The easiest thing might be to download QGIS 1.7 from and install it on your home computer (if an incompatibility is actually the source of the problem, that is). – Jake Feb 25 '13 at 13:28
Is this a QGS file because QGIS gives me an alert but usually opens the project file anyway. Can you also tell us what error message do you get? – MappaGnosis Feb 25 '13 at 13:29
