Project Missing

Not sure what happened but my projects are no longer showing up in the browser. The project folder still exists in Documents>Vuforia Studio>'Project Name' Is there any method to get it back?

Re: Project Missing

Possibly the appConfig file has been corrupted? I would compare it to the app config file from another project and look for malformed json. If there is nothing secret in it share it here and i'll take a look at it.

Re: Project Missing

I would if I could actually post it... This forum does not allow me to post it. Error: The contents of the attachment doesn't match its file type.

Re: Project Missing

Picky filters i guess. I would either zip it up or open it in a text editor and copy and paste it into a reply with the "insert code" button.

Re: Project Missing

I tired to .zip it up this time. Thanks for that idea and I appreciate the assistance.

Re: Project Missing

So that file is toast.

My guess for a solution would be to copy the appConfig.json file from another project (pick one with similar settings in terms of Project type: 2D Eyeware, 3D Eyeware, Mobile). Replace your corrupt file with this copy and then open it in a text editor and change the following values to match the project you are in.

  "name": "[Project name here]",
  "fileName": "[name of the project folder]",

This should be enough to get the experience to show up on the Studio home page and allow you to open it. Then you can change the rest of the setting from inside Studio. Things like thumbnail image and description.

Re: Project Missing

Looks like that got my project back in the list, but it won't load (just keeps spinning green circle). Looks like some/all of my other .json files are corrupted as well. Seems like I might have to cut my loses and just redo all my work.
