Hello Community!

Hoping someone might be able to help with this urgent issue. All of a sudden, my.cpd project file has been corrupted and cannot be opened. Nothing out of the ordinary happened overnight to cause this error in the morning. Other project files open fine, but the main project I always work in has now become corrupt and RoboHelp 2015 says that it cannot be opened.

Has anyone ever experienced this before? Any tips to look through before contacting Adobe directly would be much appreciated.

I have backups of the .cpd that I could load. To bring in the most up to date htmls though, is there any quick way of doing that besides dragging and dropping each individual topic page into the older version of the .cpd?

The XPJ is what you use to open a project. The CPD is a cache that rebuilds

if not present.

Just delete the CPD in File Explorer and then reopen the project.

Hi Peter,

Sorry for my lack of experience here, but if I delete that CPD file, how do I go about reopening the project? The CPD is the project?
