I'm using the v2.0.19beta pro version of Burp on my windows machine. I'm trying to open an existing project, it is throwing an error, " An error occurred when starting a project with the selected options. Failed to create Burp Project: NulpointerException". Debug ID: 996j8ejvhld1s20diyk0:e8gl

Sorry that you're having difficulty. Is there any chance you can share the project file that's causing problems? You can email a link to support@portswigger.net We'll treat it confidentially and delete once the cause is diagnosed.

Nate - Sorry you are also having difficulty. Is there any chance you can share the problematic project file? If you could send a download link to support@portswigger.net that would really help use out.

Thanks for the reports. We have now identified this issue and a fix will be in the next release. In the meantime, please use Burp 2.0.18 if you are affected.

Thanks Paul. I will send you a link momentarily. At quick glance, the file itself is massive. Almost 3GB in size. My biggest other file is 250MB. Most sit under 100MB.
