I would suggest trying the following:
- start with a new, blank project file. To do this, start a new project,
select a wizard (either SD or DD) then hit the red "x" instead of finish.
That should put you in the detailed interface with a blank project.
- now simply "file import" one of the .inp files.
You will lose all the info in the .pd2 which is the original wizard data,

should be there.
Your parametric run data is in a .prd text file so once your new file is
saved, you may be able to copy & rename the .prd to the new "project file
anme".prd and recover your parametric run info as well.
This has saved me quite a few times.
