I was using Trados on my laptop when it went into low battery standby mode (Windows told me it was at 99%, was clearly lying). I plugged the laptop back in and it woke up, and I continued working with absolutely no problems.

I've just turned my laptop on again and tried to open Trados, and I get the following message:

Failed to load project from [directory]:

Type: Sdl.ProjectApi.ProjectApiException, Sdl.ProjectApi, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=c28cdb26c445c888

Source: Sdl.ProjectApi.Implementation

HResult: -2146233088

There is an error in XML document (188,520).

Type: System.InvalidOperationException, mscorlib, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089

'CreatedBy' is a duplicate attribute name. Line 188, position 520.

LineNumber: 188

This could not have happened at at worse time, please tell me it's fixable!
