Hi everyone!
I just somehow managed to botch a major project while confirming propagated exact matches (there were lots of them, I just kept the keys pressed for a while and the programme crashed). Now it won't open the file anymore, because it "might be damaged".
I run DVX3 Pro build 744 on Win7. Does anyone have any ideas on how to salvage the project? A lot of work went into it, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, Max,

I think I can help. The first step is to locate the .ldb file (has the same name as your project) in the subfolder you created your project in.

First, close DVX3.
After you locate the .ldb file, delete it and reopen DVX3. This step should allow you to access the project (dvprj) file.
Next, use Tools>Repair and choose Project. Locate the affected .dvprj file and click Repair. As a precaution, close DVX3 after a successful repair. Reopen DVX3 and the project file should be fine to open and work on it again.
