Project Opens and then Freezes

Well, this is problematic: my new song sketch freezes when I try to open the project.

*I have many other projects with the same plugins (nothing new, and a much larger count). So, hmmm…
*Only the project freezes (I can still use the mouse and keyboard to ctrl+alt+del out)
*I’ve tried opening the project in older versions, both 64 and 32 bit, but it still freezes regardless.

Any ideas on how to troubleshoot? Thanks!


Does it freeze after loading, or during loading a MixConsole?

These freezings are very often plug-ins related (even if you say, you are using the same plug-ins in another software). Sometimes, it helps to open the project on another machine (very often without the plug-ins), re-save it. Then, you are often able to open it back on your studio machine.
