Nice try, but the new fresh installed thunderbird on Win 10 is older than my Win7. Just read the specs in my question.  :( :(

Copy the profile from a greater version to a lesser version. That is exactly when the downgrade protection kicks in. It is the profile that it is checking for a last used with and your new install is a lesser version. It is also exactly what is described at the end of the article. I have changed the heading so when I send folks there with your issues they actually read the section. I will not be pasting the stuff here.

Please post back only after the downgrade over ride command line does not work.
