Default XML Import into Reaper Problem (FIXED)

When importing XMLs produced by ‘Tonica Start‘ program into Reaper, get ‘unterminated comment unexpected end of file’ error. However, these files load normally into both ‘Band in a Box’ and ‘Musescore3’. In fact, if they are loaded into Musescore3 and immediately saved as XML file they will then load properly into Reaper.

Not sure if Reaper is being unduly strict in interpreting the files that won’t load, or if Tonica Start is producing non-standard files. Have had a quick look at the XML, but it is too long and involved for me easily to make sense of.

Any thoughts please?

As a workaround, try editing the second line of the .xml file by putting a space between "2.14" and the "-->", so instead of:
Code:
<!--MusicXML 2.0 file created by CapToMusic.py CapXML to MusicXML converter version 2.14-->
Make it:
Code:
<!--MusicXML 2.0 file created by CapToMusic.py CapXML to MusicXML converter version 2.14 -->
(or just delete that line entirely)... Fixing on our end, too.

Default XML Import Pronlem

Many thanks for this - think it fair to say would never have found the work-round solution on my own!
