File does not contain a valid Avid domain header.

Hi there,
 
The message says one or more of your bin files are corrupted and you should clean them up. This happens sometimes when files are manually duplicated or renamed.
 
To clean up the corrupted files, open your project folder and slowly go through the files you see in the folder. You should see some files with + or _ in front of the title. Delete those (or just remove them from the folder) and see if you can open your project then.
There is another way of finding out which files are corrupted – while loading your project, hold down the ALT or OPTION key. That will open your project without opening bins and you can add one by one to see which one is the corrupted one.
 
Also, you can try recovering a corrupted bin from the Attic folder.
