BlueLion is using memoQ 2015 server, build 7.8.153

We are trying to import 2 Docx + 1 PPTX file, and we get this strange message:

Attempting to read beyond valid data in buffer (along with the very long techi mumbo-jumbo right after)

We have tried to TransTool it, in order to clean tags, but nothing seems to help

We tried to first import it in local (in order to publish it later), but it does not help either.

Would appreciate your experience in order to solve it

Could you solve this error? Dec 3, 2016

Hello Omer.

I just got the exact same error while trying to import a project.

Were you able to solve it? Could you guide me through it?

Thank you very much.
