IF you havent tried to open your project in a code-editor, yourself(?) That error could be a cluster-error on your harddrive!
Something has corrupted the file!
If it is af MMPZ file, it is lost.
If it is af MMP file, it is possible to recover at least something.

What is it?

No. The built-in command to convert the compressed data file to raw XML is

Code: Select all

lmms --dump path/to/project.mmpz
and it could possibly work with a damaged project too. I don't know how this command works on Windows though.

On windows it does not work with a damaged project.
Zonk -Have you tried on linux with a MMPZ-project where the xml is flawed?
-like try to open in hex-editor, and remove some tags?
Its not the issue with VSTs, that blocks opening, its XML-code, that are missing.
If it really can be converted back to MMP, that would be super! -But i really doubt it
