It first happened when I was trying to import a bilingual document(memoq xlz file) into my project, I'm not sure what went wrong and all of a sudden I can't do anything in the software, no opening project/starting translation/creating new project, I can't even close MQ, and everywhere I click this error messege popped up....
After I restart my computer I was able to create a new project, but somehow when I tried to open the old project it all happened again.

hopefully someone can help me figure out what's wrong.....Thanks in advance~!

Do not waste your time. Dec 6, 2019

Probably the Kilgray people are able to find the reason (if you send the package to them) but how long a time will/would it take?

It occasionally happens that a file is corrupted, but MemoQ support can fix the problem. If you put in a support ticket using Kilgray's support platform on their website and mark it Critical, they will usually respond within a few minutes, in my experience.
