This is a guide to repair projects that get a "TickTime.cpp-290" error after opening a specific project.
- Project repair tool (download link below)
- WinRAR or any file archiver
- Damaged project file
As an example, let's say the name of my damaged project is 'test.prproj'
1. Download the project repair tool here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/3fyja0ws7l5gkbt/pp-repair-0.1.35.zip?dl=0
2. Rename your project file from 'test.prproj' to 'test.zip' (a warning appears saying the file might become unusable. Do not be concerned about the warning. Click OK and move to the next step.)
3. Extract the contents of 'test.zip' to a location on your computer. (Right click on the file and select ‘Extract files’ > Choose a location > Click OK).
4. Go to the extracted location. Note the file 'test' has no extension.
5. Rename the file, 'test.prproj'.
6. Launch the project repair tool, and then select the file 'test.prproj' (the one that we renamed in the last step).
7. Deselect all the check-boxes in the project repair tool.
8. Click the Repair button.
9. After a few seconds you see a message saying 'Success'.
10. Open the repaired file in Premiere Pro and then reset the workspace. Choose Window > Workspace > Reset Current Workspace.
11. Click the Save button to reduce the project size.
12. Your project is now repaired.
NOTE: If file names that contain letters such as ã, å, ê, í, ú don’t repair, rename the file to something that doesn’t contain these letters.
