Broken SIMP file (#1643)

Dear Dusian,

When opening a SIMP project I edited yesterday, the software reports an exception and fails to load it.

The simp.bak file also does not load (renamed to .simp).

I opened the simp and simp.bak file in Notepad++ and everythink "looks" ok.

System.Collections.Generic.KeyNotFoundException: Der angegebene Schl├╝ssel war nicht im W├Ârterbuch angegeben.

bei System.ThrowHelper.ThrowKeyNotFoundException()

bei System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary`2.get_Item(TKey key)

bei SoftwareIdeasModeler.Core.Projecting.Diagram.LoadAbstractItems(SimXmlReader reader, Diagram diagram, XElement root)

bei SoftwareIdeasModeler.Core.Projecting.Diagram.FromXElement(SimXmlReader reader, IDiagramOwner owner, XElement elem)

bei SoftwareIdeasModeler.Core.Projecting.Folder.FromXElement(SimXmlReader reader, Project project, XElement elem)

bei SoftwareIdeasModeler.ProjectXml.SimXmlReader.LoadFolders(XElement root)

bei SoftwareIdeasModeler.ProjectXml.SimXmlReader.Load()

bei SoftwareIdeasModeler.ProjectHelper.LoadProject(String localFileName, Boolean showReadOnlyWarning, Boolean checkFileVersion, Boolean processCustomDiagrams, Boolean showErrorMessages)

bei SoftwareIdeasModeler.ProjectHelper.LoadProject(String filename, String repositoryPath)

Is there any chance to open the project?

Luckily I have up to date PDF exports!

Thank you very much

Dear Sebastian,

I apologize for the complication. The fix will be released very soon. The file should be possible to open with the new version.

After installing 12.66 my project file opens as expected - thanks for the quick fix.

The issue should be fixed. Please try the new version.
