Comment 1 Lluis Sanchez 2014-06-03 09:25:21 UTC
Looks like the file type filter is not being applied in the file selector.
Comment 2 Marius Ungureanu 2014-06-05 07:55:55 UTC
Fixed in master.
Comment 3 Prashant manu 2014-06-06 02:12:55 UTC
Now if select Add> Add Existing Project , then at Open dialog by default 'Project files' filter appears selected and is working fine.

However if we change it to 'All Files' and select any invalid file we are still getting same error. It occurs on both MAC and win.

Comment 4 Marius Ungureanu 2014-06-06 05:07:52 UTC
Lluis, should we modify Add Existing Project so it doesn't throw but just say it's invalid?
Comment 5 Lluis Sanchez 2014-06-09 04:38:49 UTC
We could show a better message.
Comment 6 Lluis Sanchez 2014-06-09 06:54:24 UTC
I closed by mistake.
