OpenCPN error: Usage, unexpected parameter

Before I upgraded to a newer version of OpenCPN, I made a backup copy of my tracks. Now, in 3.2.1, when I try to view those tracks, I get this message:
Usage: opencpn.exe[/unit_test_1][/p]/unit_test_1/p unexpected parameter

I don't know what it means, or how to restore those backed-up tracks. Can anyone help?

Re: OpenCPN error: Usage, unexpected parameter

It means you are trying to run OpenCPN with a command line parameter it does not know. In this case I suppose a filename of your tracks backup. That's not how it's supposed to be done.
Run OpenCPN normally. Open Waypoint manager. Import your backup (Actually not needed if you just upgraded - everything will be there. Not the case if you for some reason deleted your data during the upgrade)
And as you are in the upgrade - any reason to use 3.2.1 and not 3.2.2 which is the current stable version?
