Hi @Arun,

Thank you for reporting this issue, and I apologise for the problem.

Could you send me a copy of the file that you can’t open (via private message is fine) so I can test it here?

The error identifier was helpful – it links to this issue, which is where we will track the problem: bug(developer): EAccessViolation: Exception EAccessViolation in module tike.exe at 01A2BD01. · Issue #10684 · keymanapp/keyman · GitHub

Hello Marc

Greetings of the day!!

I sent you the file.

And TIKE 18 can open and compile that kmn perfectly.

Warm regards

Glad to hear that v18 can open the file. That means the most recent build of v17 should also be able to do the same, as the two versions are currently identical – we only branched to v18 yesterday!

Turns out that the issue was with a .kpj file, not a .kmn file. See fix(developer): crash opening invalid project by mcdurdin · Pull Request #10781 · keymanapp/keyman · GitHub; this will be fixed in Keyman Developer 17 beta.
