    Anyone know what this error means. I can't access this one sequence on the main file, back up and the back up back up USB drive... The sequence still plays on xscheduler, but I can't get in to update the sequence in xlights.

    It would be that the xml file that the sequencer uses is corrupt, but the fseq file (that the scheduler uses) is ok.

    That's my understanding on how it works, but I could be wrong.

    After having a look at the xml file, lines 1390 to 1529 are corrupt.

    Copy the file with the .xbkp extension to a new name, then change the extension to .xml and you should be able to open it in xlights.

    Still have it Keith, I would have saved it under .39 and opened it in .42. Can send it to you.
