Dear Rajat,

This issue happens because one of XML files is broken.

Check appsettings.xml file from C:\ProgramData\Bizagi\Enterprise\BizagiStudio and verify it. If it is broken, reemplace it the file with the attached file.

Check BizAgiProjects.xml file from C:\ProgramData\Bizagi and verify it. If it is broken, reemplace it the file with the attached file.

Note: Modify their values according your environment.



Thanks a lot, Juan. It's working now.

Kind Regards
