Here is what SDL has come up with:
"...as a last resort can you try these as well. (Note that you will have a recreate a few things after doing this but if you back up the xml files you will be able to copy the details out of them if necessary)
C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\18.104.22.168\.
They will be recreated and it may help."
I searched for one of the files (it does not really matter which), found two different copies of it (one maybe related to the Trados 2007 version still present on my computer), used the one whose path corresponded to the one sent by SDL above, found the correct location and zipped the three files in it (so as not to lose them if I should need them later), then deleted the original files.
I restarted Studio... and voila! - all projects were in the project view. I had lost all my options (everything had went back to default), but that took some 3-4 minutes to set.
Thank you, Paul Filkin!
you made my day! now my Projects appear in the Projects View. I had actually lost all hope!
