Error opening psx file: "Empty XML Data"
« on: January 23, 2020, 03:21:03 AM »
I recently came back to a project that is saved on a cloud drive (Mapped to K:\) that I cannot open anymore due to this error: "Empty XML data"

I have all of the files, (i.e. and the folders for the project and I searched through this forum earlier but didn't solve the problem by making text edits to the .psx file.

Has anyone had a similar experience?

Here is what my .psx text looks like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<document version="1.2.0" path="{projectname}.files/"/>

Here is what my doc.xml file looks like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<document version="1.2.0">
  <chunks next_id="2" active_id="0">
    <chunk id="0" path="0/"/>
    <chunk id="1" path="1/"/>
    <property name="Info/OriginalSoftwareName" value="Agisoft Metashape"/>
    <property name="Info/OriginalSoftwareVendor" value="Agisoft"/>
    <property name="Info/OriginalSoftwareVersion" value="1.5.0"/>

Hello edtriplett,

Is there any additional information in the Console pane when you are trying to open the project, which may indicate to the certain file?

Do you have shapes in this project?
