MAXQDA can't open the chosen file.

When trying to open one of my MAXQDA files, I am confronted by the following error:

MAXQDA can't open the chosen file. The file may be already opened, or it has the wrong file format, or it may be broken.

Do you have any advice on how to overcome this?

There could be many reasons for that - mostly the ones listed in the erro message.
More details might help give you a more specific answer.

Is this happening with all file types, is it with multiple files, or just one?
What were you doing - were you busy importing the file, or was it already imported and you were trying to view it in the document browser?
