It's my first time in this forum, I am trying to open a Project from Netbeans and I am experiencing an error: "Invalid byte 1 of 1-byte UTF-8 sequence" on Open Project dialog. Is there anyone who knows the cause of this, and if so, how do I resolve it, without having to start a new project all over again? You may also advice if there is a link where I can get help.
Sounds like one of the files in the project is encoded in Unicode. Such files have a byte-order marker in the first two bytes (usually 0xfffe or 0xfeff). It appears that NetBeans doesn't like the file. You might have to figure out which file is in question and use some other editor to convert the file back to ASCII or UTF-8.
