I am getting this error on Premiere CS6:
"this project contains a sequance that could not be opened"
And I can´t open projects. Tried to shift+alt and open but it happens again after I close.
Any idea on this?
Is that a CS5/CS5.5 project, or a new CS6 project that will not reopen?
If an earlier version project, do you have any plugin effects?

This error message is caused by the project having a sequence whose settings are no longer available to Premiere Pro. One example is if the sequence was created on a system with third-party hardware, like AJA or Blackmagic, and you try opening it on a system without that hardware. Another example is if the sequence uses MPEG for preview, and your MPEG codecs get smurfed.
It was a project that I have used in CS6. Is just happened that I cannot open them. I dont think there are any codecs that are no longer on the machine.
What about the MOEG preview thing, how can I see if that can be the case?
I just opened a 5,5 project. Used it in CS6 and exported (no problem), saved it as CS6, Closed it and tried to re-open and got the error.

I have no idea what 3rd party compenents it is talking about.
All your MPEG presets are missing. That happens sometimes. Here's what I've seen suggested as a fix.
Just deactivate and reactivate. No need to uninstall.
The problem is that the activation system is broken, and that is preventing the unlocking of certain codecs.
The recommended series of actions is this:
2. Quite Premiere Pro.
3. Restart your computer.
4. Restart Premiere Pro.
6. Create a new project.
7. See if the MPEG-based and RED sequence presets are available. If so, open your project. If not, something else is wrong.
