I was working on a project for halloween. Needless to say that my computer crashed. When
I went back to working, vixen wouldn't work anymore. I then proceeded to reload. Now I get this message when I try to open my sequence.

If anyone can point me in the right direction to fix this i would be very happy.

Thank you in advance.

See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.

When you reloaded did you install .NET?

Just tried to reinstalled .net Didn't seem to fix anything. I can open other sequence files. Just not the one that was opened when my computer crashed.

Thanks for your help

Scratching my head on this one - but - what version of vixen did you create the songs in?

Maybe the sequence file could have been partially corrupted during the system crash?



System.Xml.XmlException: '.', hexadecimal value 0x00, is an invalid character. Line 139, position 515657.


Unfortunately that error line makes me think that it is not a Vixen glitch causing the error, but instead an XML parsing error resulting from a stray 0x0 (null) byte inside your sequence file. Null bytes are not supposed to find their way into XML based files, unless the system crash affected the file contents maybe.
