Your backup is from a different version of Windows SharePoint Services and cannot be restored to a server running the current version.

I was working on restoring a WSS site from dev environment to test environment using STSADM. I receive following error message

Your backup is from a different version of Windows SharePoint Services and cannot be restored to a server running the current version.

The different between the two environments were that one is with SP1 and other without it.

6.0.2.5530 (Original)
6.0.2.6361 (SP1 Applied)

I had to make sure that both environments are running the same WSS versions by applying the SP1 before restore the WSS site.

You need to install;
Update for Windows SharePoint Services (KB924881)

It should bring your version up to 6.0.2.8117. I had the same issue. It does not install as a normal WindowsUpdate.

Good Luck.
