could not open the project file



  • Good Morning,
    I have an issue with the project. I have configured a set of file in the project # 1 very useful when accessing a set of files all the time. Now when I ask to open the project #1 nothing happen. Same if I try to open project#2 or 3 that I have never used. I got te same issue some time ago and the solution was to delete a configuration file. Unfortunately I did not write the solution and I do not remember the file name to delete.
    thanks for your help.

    the config.xml contains a project panels tag like

        <ProjectPanels>
            <ProjectPanel id="0" workSpaceFile="D:\to_delete" />
            <ProjectPanel id="1" workSpaceFile="" />
            <ProjectPanel id="2" workSpaceFile="" />
        </ProjectPanels>
    

    As you see in the example, ProjectPanel 1 (0 in xml) points to a file D:\to_delete and if you open this file then you see the list of files assigned to the project.

    <NotepadPlus>
        <Project name="Project Name">
            <File name="mybatch.bat" />
        </Project>
    </NotepadPlus>
