Mendix crashes while creating NewApp from existing .MPK package

I have an existing Mx5.19.0 project in team server which i open in modeler(since i have access) and export the package as a .mpk file. My intention here is to keep this project as template and create more projects from this. I open a new mendix session(no parallel sessions) and File > Import project Package > choose the .mpk file A dialog asking for Team Server(Yes/No), new name is asked, correct data is entered. Say Ok > mendix goes gaga! and crashes. Sometimes shows the error page with option for feedback but in a flash crashes that too! What could be the reason? Where can i see what went wrong? Logs somewhere in installation directory from the Modeler is running?

Hi Ganesh,

  My first suggestion would be to upgrade the project to 5.21.5 and try this process again.  I asume you are opening the 5.19 export in the 5.19 modeler.  A simple thing to check is to ensure that you are creating the project in a directory to which you have write access on your local machine.  I've tried to create a Mendix project on a directory to which I could not write and recieved a similar crash.

  When Mendix 'goes gaga,' does that mean it simply crashes or does a dialogue box with a 'show log' button appear for you?
