Failed To Open Project How do I fix it?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Mon Dec 14, 2015 12:28 pm

When I try to open my project a window opens which says the following:

"Failed to open project 'C:\Users\Construct.caproj':
Error reading end tag.
Line 564, column 21

The file may be invalid. Try checking the file in a text editor (projects are saved in XML format)"

I opened the file in Notepad and on that line was Null codes, also a few lines afterwords, is there anyway to fix this, i also tried opening the backup file....same problem occurs.

Thanks in advance

Without seeing the project it is impossible to say whether anything can be recovered.

Have you tried the .autosave file or .backup files?

Just remove the extension to leave the .capx suffix and double click to open in C2. Do any of them work?
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

Yes I have tried older backups and Auto saves they all have the same problem, i found one backup from around 3 months ago which does work.....but that's a lot of work gone missing.
