[WINDOWS 10][2.1.0] ERROR reference to invalid character

ERROR: Reference to invalid character number at line 2639

I tried opening my aup file this morning and I got this error message. I’m having something close to a nervous breakdown. This is kind of a time sensitive issue, but I should put all that away for now none of you need to be reading this … I tried opening the file on notepad but it was a jumbled mess and I couldn’t find line 2639. I tried downloading an xlr notepad reader, but it didn’t work.

Can anyone help me?!
