Why do I get the message “The archive file specified either contains no files or too many files.." when importing a Vijeo Designer project?

When opening up the vdz file using 7-Zip, you will notice that there are 2 .SwxCF files. These .SwxCF files are Vijeo Designer project files. Normally, there should only be one and the other file will need to be deleted. This is the cause for the error message “The archive file specified either contains no files or too many files. The archive should contain one file, which is a Vijeo-Frame project File”. Follow the steps below to import the Vijeo Designer project file.

1) Create a new folder with the name of the project file. (on desktop etc.)
2) Open up the project in 7-zip, and click on the .VDZ project (There will be duplicate .SWxCF files and a DataFilesBackup folder)
3) Extract both .SWxCF files including the DataFilesBackup folder to the new folder that has been created.
4) Delete one of the .SWxCF file and DataFilesBackup folder.
5) Zip up the the other .SwXCF file in 7-Zip. After, rename the file from .zip to .vdz.
6) Import the project into Vijeo Designer.
