I started a project and even exported it to video and then got my key and updated to newest version. All this happened in less than 2 weeks. Now when I try to open the projects I had started it says it can't open and make sure it is a valid project.

do you have the video you made from the original project?  if so, use that in a new project

also, what file extensions are on the projects that won't open?

Ok. that's a pretty obvious and easy fix. I feel silly for not thinking of that but have only been using the software for about a week, so I'll cut myself some slack this time. They are .tscproj files. There was a screenshare video I had recorded that I was wanting to use in another project but don't know where it's stored.

what version of Camtasia did you use to make the original project? 2018?

re the CS 2018 projects you made recently, are all the media files used in those projects still in their original file system locations?

can you open one of the tscproj files in a text editor [I use free Notepad++]?

if so, can you share the 1st 13 lines here [copy/paste]?
