Error on project import

On every project import process we are getting the following error message in the log file. We have also tried using the add-ons for importing projects as well, but the same error message appears.

The Log details are below:

Hi,

The issue has been raised by another user and we are currently trying to resolve it. Take a look at that thread. I have also posted a new beta version with a fix in there that you could try on a test instance.
