    Hello,

    What you did to make it happen? Step-by-step reproduction guide would be great.

    Alexander,

    I did not do anything special. I was working in Fiddler for a few hours one day. I shut it down. The next day the composer history was corrupt and I got this error. I "fixed" the problem by deleting the composer history file but this obviously lost all of my history. It appears to be a binary file so there was no way I could examine the XML inside.

    Hello,

    Please, excuse us for the inconvenience caused.

    Something have to gone wrong during the serialization of the Composer history. Unfortunately, there is not much we can do in this case.
