Cannot open AUP3 file


I just updated Audacity from v2.2 to 3.1 and created a project.

But now, i can’t open the project, i get an error :

What can i do ? Thanks

If you care to zip up your “broken” .aup3 file and upload it to a file sharing service, then post (or PM me) a link. I’ll take a look at it.

I’ve encountered the same problem on Win 10 after upgrading from 3.0.2 (32-bit) to 3.1.2 (64-bit obviously). Audacity sometimes fails to open with “no such table; project in SELECT 1 PROJECT LIMIT 1;” sqlite3 error. Still works fine (after that) if opening a wav file directly from explorer though. It turns out the error is caused by a hanged Audacity process still running in the background. Terminating that process “fixed it”… although I’m not yet sure what causes the hangs.
