Reached corrupt file screen. Can't open program. Help!

every time I try to open the program I get a screen and says corrupt files and to open up through command prompt. Nothing I do seems to help. Any advice?

Do you start Ardour itself, or is this about the installer? Linux, Windows, Mac?

I’m trying to open it. I’ve had it for a few months and have been using it. It’s with Windows. I try and open the program and it leads me to a screen saying corrupt files and to open with command prompt. When I try with command prompt, it says I’ve reached the limit of file opens.

Perhaps try to remove the user-preferences/configuration in %localappata%\ardour5\.

You can type %localappdata% in the explorer’s location bar (it’s a hidden folder by default, usually C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Local) ; remove or rename the “ardour5” folder to start afresh.

Ok. I’ll try when I get home from work and report then. Thank you
