Hi, yesterday I finished a huge project and closed Studio 2014 SP2. All well. Made two back up copies of the folder on different disks.

This morning I'm trying to open the project but I get the error message as above.
I can open all other projects that are in the Studio 2014 folder (located on the C disk) except this huge one, and of course I am in deep trouble because of tight deadline. i have not installed or removed any program overnight.
Things I've tried so far:

- rebooted Studio and PC several time
- copied the project folder onto another computer, same result
- tried to open the project from different locations (the back ups)
- tried to rename the projects.xlm file
- tried to open the project from shortcut and Open Project item in the menu etc.

If I try to open the project from the back up location, I also get the following message:

"Solved" Mar 3, 2015

Eventually I had to reopen the original package and substitute the empty TM with the one I had in the "damaged folder", which luckily was OK. I got all 100% matches but I lost all comments, which they were quite a lot. Good job, SDL.

Thank you Dec 1, 2017

That's the best workaround to this problem ever! Thanks so much for offering it. While I realise it did not work for you in the best way, it saved me a day of work. Unfortunately, this is happening every so often with my 2014 SDL.

As you can see, SDL totally ignored me. Hopefully you will get a reply, instead.
