I get 3 error messages upon failing to open:
"failed to load project from "C:\...
There is an error in XML document (959, 50)
hexadecimal value 0x 1E is an invalid character, line 959, position 50.

I de-installed it and re-installed. Same error messages.

Any suggestions?

Perhaps the problem relates... Jun 24, 2013

... to a specific problem project?

Try renaming the projects.xml file to projects.xml_orig and restart Studio? You can find this file here:

c:\Users\<USERNAME>\Documents\Studio 2011\Projects\projects.xml

If that works you will find you have no projects in your projects view, but you can add them back in again one at a time. If you have so many that this is going to be a pain then if you can identify the offending project from the error message, that you didn't completely show, then you may be able to delete the appropriate lines in the projects.xml that refer to this project.

Regards

Paul

it worked! Jun 24, 2013

Thanks for responding so quickly. As it turned out, removing the recalcitrant file proved to solve it. I am sure that renaming it would have done the same.
