How can I recover a functional version of QGIS, and hopefully also recover the project I'm working on? I'm using Windows 7 64 bit. Here is the screenshot.
I have read the threads to other similar questions and haven't resolved the problem.
- A new QGIS installation, removing 2.18 La Palmas and replacing with 2.18.11, also did not work
- Removing C:\Program Files\QGIS 2.18\apps\qgis\processing folder did not work
This crash happened as I was trying to add svg markers to my composer - as a final touch on my completed project! There are just no north arrows (but I did find them in QGIS here: C:\Program Files\QGIS 2.18\apps\qgis\svg\symbol when I tried to add some svg markers I had downloaded. They just don't show up under the svg available markers for arrows in composer? Anyway, something I did in that effort crashed the whole program and all future installations.
