today I was once again opening a wsxz file downloaded from WorldServer in Studio 2014 when we had a power outage. After restarting my computer and trying to open the file again I get the error mesasge "The given path's format is not supported" and it won't import the file anymore. In fact I can't find "wsxz" amont the file types in the Studio settings.

Anyone have an idea what happened, why this file format all of a sudden can't be imported anymore or if the settings for this file type can be imported/added to Studio again?

Hi all,
this has been solved. The issue was not due to the power outage, but is a problem with the file name of this particular file I tried to work with. Just a bad coincidence.

I am having the same problem you talk about and I was wondering wether you found the solution for it.

I would be glad if you could help me.

Thank you
