The video editors render scripts appears to have been updated around the time of the 2.83 release:

@Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) About the programs which don't work anymore:
1.) One program that doesn't work anymore is "THE VIDEO EDITOR'S RENDER SCRIPT". But which is no longer being developed. It stopped working the day Blender 2.83 was released^^

@Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) , @Dalai Felinto (dfelinto) Since you changed the versioning system and bpy.app.version returns now a different result than bpy.data.version there are several programs that don't work anymore because of a mismatch.
Now you didn't silently only change the API description for bpy.data.version but also the meaning which it had since forever. That's now why the programs don't work anymore.
So my question is: Is there another way to get the Blender version a .blend file was saved with?

Do you have backup of working file? usually these are created automatically with .blend1 or .blend2 extension.

Ok I can reproduce. This is likely caused by the workbench refactor.
