Topic: I'm getting an "instance document parsing failed" error when I try to open a file
Version: 5.0.1
Date: January 23, 2019
Version Corrected: 5.0.2

This can be caused by one of two issues

  1. This error occurs if a document on the recent file list can't be found. Locate the document using File > Open
  2. The file has an invalid format. If you saved a barlist file that did not contain any groups, it will be in an invalid format. The file must be manually edited to fix the problem. Using a text editing program, such as notepad, add the following after
    Group 1

Resolution: The program now has better error handling for missing documents and can read files that do not contain any groups.
