I had literally just finished a project for Blu-ray. All done. I began locating transcode files for DVD for my assets so that I could build a DVD image file in addition to the Blu-ray one I intended to create. Encore didn't seem to like that all that much, and occasionaly found media to be offline, even when it wasn't offline. When at last it appeared that it was finally in agreement with me, I saved the project and exited the program.
Now, I cannot open the project. The project begins to load, I can even see my assets appear in the project window. But then, I receive the infamous "General Error" message. I hit ok, and the project immediatly closes. Sometimes I get dozens of "General Error" messages, but the result is always the same. The project closes and I am left wondering what the heck happened.
I would really like not to have to build this project all over again from scratch. So any thoughts or advice is appreciated. I'm growing increasingly frustrated with the bugs in Encore.
Things I have already tried:
Windows 7 64bit
Adobe Encore CS6.0.2.004
All my assets are previously encoded in Media Encoder, so I am not using any Dynamic Links.
Thanks Stan I will look into that and report back for others who might experience the same issue.
I agree with you. "Moving the project" sounded like a ludicrous idea to me as well, but it was an answer that some in these fourms found to be helpful with their "General Error" messages. At this point I'm willing to try anything.
I'm afraid none of the solutions in the link above allowed me to get past the "general error" and the project continues to close immediatly upon opening. I fear I may have to rebuild this project.

It's not fun, but I've found this to be the preferable way for making both a BD and a DVD. Two projects, one for each (with appropriate assets for each).
