Generally the current 1.0 version of OpenStuio ResultsViewer should be able to open SQL files made with earlier versions of EnergyPlus. If you want to send the SQL file or the IDF and weather file used for the simulation to OpenStudio@xxxxxxxx we can take a look and see if we can identify and fix the issue. You may try re-running the simulation first on your end to make sure the SQL file isn't corrupted.
Your second issue is importing pre-EnergyPlus 7.2 IDF's into the 1.0 version of OpenStudio. OpenStudio 1.0 only imports EnergyPlus files with a 7.2 version. You can import older IDF's by using the "IDFVersionUpdateder" included with EnergyPlus to upgrade the IDF to version 7.2 prior to importing to OpenStudio. We are working on support for EnergyPlus 8.x IDF files.

> When i use openstudio resultviewer (version 1.0.0) to open a sql file generated from E+ version 6.0, there is an error message saying "Unsupported file format". And when i use openstudio to import a idf file (E+ version 6.0), there is another error saying "file is not valid to draft strictness". But these files can be opened by a old version of openstudio (0.7). What is the problem? Thank you.
