Hi,

iv'e moved this from the mac forum as its on windows!

I have a project (.rbp) that i worked on over a year ago now and i need to make a few changes to it
when i open the project, it opens up and i can see the tabs, but when i click on anything it goes to
a not responding state and i have to end the task, also the processor goes mad!

is there a way to get into this project?

Regards,

Russ

Try to open it in an older version of RS(the one that created it) and save it as an XML or VCP format and then open the newly created file in a newer version of RS :)
Could work, but I'm not sertain.

Thanks,

ive tried that, in all the versions i have and its always the same.

ive also now tried deleteing the cache and that doesnt fix it..

ive sent the windows crash report report via the feedback app

the trouble is, it wont open at all so i cant save it out as anything else!

Sounds almost like the file might be corrupted :/

I have experienced what I believe you are describing, and it has scared me on numerous occasions as well.

The only think I can say is that it seems to happen if I have too many tabs open in the IDE. You can try to see if you can close all of the tabs once the file is open, hopefully you might be able to close a tab without it crashing. If you can, then I would try saving the file with a new name after you have closed as many tabs as possible.
