Audacity wont open my project file

Basically everytime i try to open my project file it says

" “is an audacity project file use the file open command to open the project file”
or something along the lines of that
but when i use the file open command it says the same thing

what do i do??

You may have a broken Project. Open the AUP Project Manager file in NotePad or any text editor and look at it. Do Not save anything.

It should look something like this.

That was polished up for the picture, but yours should have similar English-like words, just scrambled around. If yours is empty (blank screen) or has nonsense, graphic, or foreign accented characters, then that may be the end of the show. The AUP file is used to tell Audacity what to do with all those little, scrambled sound files in the _DATA folder.

Let us know.


Which version of Audacity are you using? (Look in “Help menu > About Audacity”).
