Hi Brent,

Could you tell us a bit more about what happened when you received the error message? Were you upgrading an SL1 file to SL2? Ensure you were working locally with all your Storyline files? Have you recently done the repair solution? Have you had any other difficulty with your files? 

I know a group of users have experienced this behavior and are working with our Support team to look at files and pull system logs so that our QA team can investigate further. If you'd like to connect with them as well please reach out to them here and share a copy of your .story file.

I was working locally on an installed version of SL2 with a new file.  All other files have worked well.  This file consisted of a single MP4 video and I was creating pop-up notes in different layers.  After reading this thread, I followed the advice of saving the file to a different folder with a new name and then I no longer had the error.  I brought the same file into work today and finished it on a different machine.  I am still not sure what caused the error and it has not reoccurred so I am afraid I will be useless for troubleshooting.

Thank you for reaching out.
