django.core.exceptions.ImproperlyConfigured

I have recently moved to another machine and have had to check my project out from subversion again, but I am pretty sure this computer has Django 1.8 and the project is expecting 1.7.

I have tried to sync my db with the code to create the necessary tables but I get the following error.

C:\Users\jont\Documents\ATP\Webapp>manage.py syncdb

Answer

Dropping to Django 1.7 seemed to do the trick. There didn't seem to be an easy way to adapt the code to fit Django 1.8.
