I recently got a virus in my computer and, after having that fixed, was unable to open my Quantum GIS project. I received an error message:
Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library Runtime Error! Program: C:\PROGRA~2\Quantum GIS Lisboa\apps\qgis\bin\qgis.exe This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information.
I then clicked "okay" and it kicked me out of qgis.
I uninstalled qgis and reloaded it (version 1.8.0). When I tried to open my project, I got the same message. Then I opened qgis desktop and tried to open the project. I got a message that said
Exception - Bad allocation.
I need help. I have to recover my project.
