Black Screen on Opening vpp Project

I had a visual paradigm project with several UML Diagram that can normally opened before, but when i open it again, it shows a black screen showing nothing. The Project name shows as “untitled”, and Diagram navigator shows nothing.

My project can’t also be imported to another project, as it shows an error message (The error message popup show no text but red “error” icon and “OK” button. it can’t also be exported to another format, as in export dialog it shows nothing but “untitled” to be imported. The Save button is greyed out, and also cant be saved into another format.

Attached, is my VPP Project that doesn’t open, and a log file after I tried to open the file. Im using visual paradigm 14.2 enterprise edition (trial).

Any solution appreciated, thanks in advance!
