I'm not familiar with Resilio but if it's anything like dropbox's Smart Sync where there's symbolic files that don't actually contain the data you could be running into trouble there.
For instance, if you're quickly switching between machines while it's in the process of a sync or a sync has corrupted a file, it might look like an `aep` file is there but fail when opening.
Thanks though there aren't any symbolic links and the syncing wasn't active as no other clients were "on".
Hoping AE admin's bump this up as its very replicateable.
If you want AE people at Adobe to be aware of any issue, you need to file a bug report. They may poke into the forums occasionally and unofficially, but bugs filed at that link I gave are officially tracked.
Thanks. I just submitted.
If anyone else has tips i'd love to hear them
I have the same issue . I am able to open the same project on two other machines but unable to do so on this one workstation. Mac environment. Error:Hijacking context for a different project.
I also have the same issue. This happens frequently to various projects. Sometimes a restart solves the issue. I noticed when I have some media that goes offline (unlinked) it will do this. I'm on a PC.

Half my projects now do this to me. They all have this in common if a source is missing.
This WORKAROUND has worked for me twice today:
- Create a new project.
- Import the corrupted project. (This removes the "double opening" occurrence that also happens) when it crashes.
- Relink the missing element and save as a new version.
This has solved my problems when I run into this issue.
Thanks for sharing this. I'll be sure to give it a try next time it happens.
