Trados 2014 Error: 'The file at location...does not exist!'

I've received a Trados project file from an employer. When I try to open the document for which I am responsible, I get this message:

"Failed to open... Refer to the additional error information below for more details.

Warning: Unexpected error when detecting file type for file...: Could not find a part of the path...

Error: The file at location...does not exist."

Is this a common problem?

Any quick fixes or further diagnostics I should employ?

Thank you.

When the compressed folder holding all the files was decompressed, the Chinese characters weren't rendered properly. Keep an eye out for this on your own projects.

I had the same problem but my client helped me. You have to set the language before you open the project.

See the image. I have highlighted the language drop down menu. Once I had done that, the problem was resolved.

(I realise that the post is old, but I still found myself with the same issue)
