I have just upgraded to Windows 10, and as a result some of the station letters regretably have to reordered. This has led to Studio 2015 forgetting the projects I have been working with when it closes.

I thought that perhaps this was a temporary problem, and that the project window would be filled as I am working on new projects. But now I see that a project I worked on earlier today, is gone after I closed and opened Studio again.

I can still browse to the project file on the harddisk (which now has station letter G: rather than whatever it had before - it is an external disk), but it would be useful just to make the project active if I need to do more on it.

Is there something I can do to fix it, without having to uninstall and reinstall the whole of Studio? (I tried that earlier today, and the problem persists, but I did not clean the registry after uninstallment.)

Try editing manually the projects.xml file Aug 19, 2015

Project locations are set in the projects.xml file (on my computer it is found under \Documents\Studio 2014\Projects).

You might try opening the file with Notepad and editing file locations.
File locations should be found in the middle part of the file (search for "ProjectFilePath").

Changing station letter seems to have fixed it. Aug 19, 2015

I tried to edit the xml file, but the problem persisted, so I tried to change the station letter (after removing the letter from some stations on the pc that I don't use) and at least first impression is that it worked, at least for new projects.

Glad this is fixed Aug 20, 2015

Forgot to mention that you must restart SDL Trados Studio after editing the projects.xml file.
Otherwise your changes would not take effect.

TOPIC STARTER
Guessed as much ... Aug 20, 2015

... but the problem was that the restart didn't work. I suspect there is some other setting telling Studio where to find the projects.xml files, as I found 2 on G:, which I did edit, but Studio seemed to look for them on E: After changing the partition letter to E: thinks seem to work as intended again.

Anyway, thanks for your help.
Roy

Same issue Aug 22, 2015

Also having this problem since the Win 10 update.

I've tried all the tricks, but my Project List remains empty! Actually, it keeps two finished projects and the rest disappear.

projects.xml appears to be stuck at a certain point in time.

I wish there was a Refresh option for the Project List like there is for Windows Desktop etc. I am definitely out of my depth when I have dig into hidden folders and attempt to edit xml files and such.

Delete project .xml Aug 22, 2015

I'd try deleting the project settings file.

- Close Studio
- Delete the projects.xml file from here:
C:\Users\[USERNAME]\Documents\Studio 2015\Projects

Restart Studio and browse to the same place to re-open your projects.

Hope it works!
