I have just been doing a few test with VisionLab Studio (I seem to have been doing that a lot lately). I had to shut down the computer for a while, so I saved the project - and when I came back and opened the file the following messages were displayed: (over and over again - so I had to use the taskmanager to finally kill the process.)
It took me some time to find out what was wrong here. As the project file itself had obliviously been damaged I decided to send the file through an XML-Parser which came up with the following error message:
This sounded interesting so I checked line 272 of the file using notepad++ (which btw. is a fantastic (and free) tool):
The "EPeý..." part looked a little odd - so I simply deleted that and only kept the rest:
After that I saved the file, and surprise, surprise: it opened up like a charm in VisionLab. This way I managed to get my file back to life.
The root of all evil (at least for this project) seems to have been one of the video files I used. The video was originally generated by a 'Konica Minolta Dimage Z3'. I had the same problem with all videos from this camera. If you want to check this out yourself, please feel free to download a small demo file here:
If you should ever encounter a similar problem, maybe editing the project file with a simple text editor will work for you as well.
Thanks for listening/reading,
