Hi Stephan

Thanks for your quick response. It seems that my project file got damaged
somehow. I deleted it and Wing started working again. I am attaching the
file fyi.

If I may suggest, you may want to consider checking for the validity of that
file and pop up a message informing the user that the project is invalid.

Congrats on a really neat product and good tech support.
