I have been working on a project in Studio 2011 all week, and then suddenly on Friday the following error message appears - The type initializer for Sdl.FileTypeSupport.Bilingual.SdlXliffFileWriter.XliffFileWrite threw an exception - and I cannot save any of the files in the project. Luckily everything is saved in the TM, but I now can't progress to finishing the files and creating return packages to send back to my client. I can't seem to find anything out about this error message online!

Has anyone got any ideas about how to resolve this? For context, I upgraded to Windows 10 about a month (or more) ago, but everything has been working smoothly until now!

Thanks in advance!
