Problem Description

I spent several hours starting a project the other day. After coming back to it today, it fails to load. A popup error happens (see details below).

Description of Capx
When this capx is opened in construct2, this error pops up and the project fails to load.

Sorry, there's nothing we can do to fix this without the steps to reproduce, it's just a corrupt project and we have no idea how it got like that in the first place. Also since you're still on r178 there's a chance we already fixed it in r184, so please make sure you're using the latest version of C2 before reporting bugs.
