Found Invalid Data While Decoding

Apr 23, 2018

I saw a thread from a year or two ago on this and tried all of the suggestions in those threads.  It is an SL2 to SL360 conversion.  I have the file local, path is less than 256 characters, etc...  I am getting an error, "The project file could not be saved.  Found invalid data while decoding."  If I click OK, the course will open, but, then when I try to save, I get the same error again.

Hi there, Justin.  It sounds like you've done some troubleshooting already with this file.  I'm happy to step in and lend a hand!  Can you attach the .story file here for testing on my end?

I'm not sure what you've tried yet, but here are some other suggestions:

  • Open a new project and import the slides from this original file.
  • Make a copy of the file in File Explorer and give it a slightly different name.
  • Attempt to upgrade the Storyline 2 backup file again ( project_name - SL2 backup.story ) for a new copy.

Let me know what you think!
