Error when updating project from 2014.1 r5073 to 2014.1 r5129 (Mac)

+1 vote

I've just installed the Mac authoring Beta 2014.1 r5129, and am trying to upgrade my project created in 2014.1 r5073.

I get the following error:

The format of the file is invalid.

Error: failed to load external entity "file:///C:/Program%20Files/Audiokinetic/Wwise/Authoring/Data/Schemas/ObjectDataSchema.69.xsd"

File: <path to project's wproj file>
Line: 0
Column: 0

After this error, the project becomes corrupted and is unloadable.

Please advise!

Thanks for any help you can provide.

(Mac OS X v10.9.4)

There is an issue when installing Beta2 while having Beta1 installed.

Before installing Beta2, you need to delete the Wwise user preference folder located under ~/Library/Application Support/Wwise.

Then launch Wwise_Authoring_Mac_v2014.1_Build5129 once again, as prompted install the VC++ redistributable. Beta2 will now have been successfully installed. You can now migrate your project created with Beta1.
