Hi, folks! In Trados studio 2015.

Received an order, client sends a project. when I try to open the project, I get an error:

The selected project could not be opened from...
There is an error in XML document...
was not expected

I've saved the file with the error details, I'll paste them in, below.

Is it a matter of distributing the project files by hand to specific directories?

Thanks to all of you in advance!
