    Somewhere along the line the file has become corrupted and SharePoint designer is not able to open it from the shortcut on the left hand navigation pane.

    However if you go to;-

    1. All Files
    2. Workflows
    3. Click the workflow name
    4. Click the workflow name.xmol

    resolution screen shot

    You will then see the familar setting page and edit options then;-

    1. Edit the workflow and save then republish.
    2. Then for good measure delete the website cache by deleting all files in the below folders;-

    C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Web Server Extensions\Cache

    C:\Users\your user name\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WebsiteCache

  • Hi, smrrajee,

    First you can try to clean the cache.

    1.Close SharePoint Designer 2013.
    2.Delete all the files from %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WebsiteCache
    3.Delete all the files from %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Web Server Extensions\Cache.
    4.Delete all the files from %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SharePoint Designer\ProxyAssemblyCache.

    If that does not help, please check if you can open other lists in designer, and try to open the list in SharePoint. Is the list over the list view threshold, having 5k items?

    Best Regards

    Jerry
